One of the very best parts of training is working with puppies then continuing to advance their training as they grow. Dedicated owners and amazing dogs putting in the work, there is nothing better. These guys have been working with us since they were tiny puppies , in addition to beautiful obedience all 3 of them do dock diving as well. So proud of their owners for working so hard to give their dogs a healthy balanced life!

Love this handsome boy. He is a spicy Kerry Blue terrier, with one very dedicated mom. He’s learning to calm his mind and be the best boy he can out in public and around distractions . I’m so excited to be working with him.
Meet Teddy. You may recognize him from the last time he was with us and you’ll definitely be seeing more of this boy as he grows. Teddy is a service dog in training and will have a very important job as he grows up. We’re so excited to be working with him and his family.
Congratulations to everyone getting their invites to nationals! Who else got invites? We can’t wait to hear about them!

We talk all about proper fitness and how it relates to injuries. In preventing them, recognizing them and recovering from them.
Sky is the perfect example of all of these. At the beginning of the year she started showing signs of being off. While she wasn’t limping or acting painful I was able to see her compensating in her back legs. After many vet visits and an amazing ortho specialist it was determined Sky had two partially torn ACL’s. Sky is an obsessive compulsive crate spinner unfortunately this is something that is genetic and started long before we got her. Over time her ligaments stretched and the ACL wore down. The next day she had the first of two TPLO surgeries. 2 weeks later she had the second leg done. The first surgery was towards the end of April.
Here’s where fitness came in. Sky had the strength to never compensate her form. The surgeon was blown away that she was walking so well and sitting like a healthy dog ( typically after this surgery dogs roll their hip when they sit) every check up we heard it’s amazing just amazing. We followed the protocol to a T. Strict rest, leash always, we did her walks exactly as prescribed. She was released for full activity in June. After slowly building her muscle back and lots of swimming she went of the dock for the first time end of July. ( pictured here) we slowly continued build muscle and do short practices with her on the dock and over Labor Day she competed for the first time since October of 2021. We were cautioned that she may never jump the same. Sky didn’t skip a beat. Every jump was elite ( over 24ft). We kept her jumps limited but we’re so excited to have this girl back. While fitness was a huge part off it we also had an amazing surgeon ( @barkcityvetspecialists ) that understands sports injuries, we have great supplements ( @antinol_usa and @k9_power ) and she uses @dogliniment after activity to help keep her muscles from being sore as she gets back into shape. Long story short don’t underestimate the importance of proper form and fitness with your dog!

These teams have been working hard this week getting last minute training in, game plans and pep talks before the @nw_diving_dogs at @northamericadivingdogs regionals! Now it’s go time!
Good luck to everyone competing this weekend!
Why is Canine Fitness so important?
We get asked this all the time so here are a few reasons why we love fitness.
✔️ Builds proper muscle
✔️Increases strength and stamina
✔️Helps to prevent injury
✔️Fit dogs recover from injuries faster
✔️Builds the bond and relationship with your dog
✔️Teaches you to look at your dog and recognize irregularities so you can spot an injury
Fitness is so much more than running your dog or playing fetch every day.
When working on fitness with your dog it’s important to work with a certified professional that can teach proper movement and form.
If you have questions about Canine Fitness or would like help setting up a plan for your athlete reach out to us today. We are Certified Canine Athlete Specialist( the only one in Utah), Certified Canine Conditioning Coach and AKC FitDog Instructors.
