CC210: Strengthening for Structural Weaknesses

Instructor: Debbie Gross

Course Details

One of the most important things we could do for our dog is understand their weaknesses, and all dogs do have a weakness, and do things to improve that weakness.  It may be behavioral or physical.  This course will focus on helping with the physical and structural weaknesses that your dog may have.  Whether it is a long back, canine hip dysplasia, weak pasterns, or a propensity to put too many extra pounds on, we want to do whatever we can to ‘stack’ the cards in the dogs’ behavior. Our goal is always to help our dogs live the best quality of life for the longest time possible.  

Gold students will have the opportunity to talk about their own dogs, participate in homework assignments, and come up with game plans to make sure the dog lives the best quality of life for the longest time possible.  And that quality of life may be inclusive of a high level athlete, enjoying life on a porch, or hiking with their best friend!  We discuss the best activities for different types of dogs.  Students will have the opportunities to put recognize weaknesses in their own dog and develop a specific program for their own dogs.
