Warm Up

It’s important for you and your dog to each warm up before working out to get the blood flow to all your muscles & joints for optimal performance and reduce injuries. Typically 2-10 minutes is a good time frame for a warm up focusing on the core & spine as that’s the powerhouse, but since we are working on both the upper and lower body we want to warm everything up!

Include some or all of these types of movements in your warm up today: Jumping Jacks, Standing Mountain Climbers, Arm Circles, Squats, Walking Lunges with Twist, Walking Caterpillars, Side Lunge Hops, Hip Circles, Hip Rotations, Toe Touches; about 10-20 reps/exercise. For you dog’s warm up include: Funder Game, Figure 8, Weave thru Legs, Wrap Around, Side Stepping, Walking Backwards, Spin/Turn; about 5-10 reps/exercise. 

Depending if you completed your dog walk beforehand, you can go on the lighter side of reps, if it was a cold, hot or rainy day and didn’t fit a walk in, go on the longer side of reps. Enough to feel warmed up, but not too many so you still have energy for today’s workout! Include all or some of the above exercises, but make sure it’s a variety working on all your planes of motion.

Back and Forth Hurdle

  • You’ll only need one hurdle as your dog is going to hurdle back and forth over one hurdle to work on their fast twitched muscles.
  • Stand to the side of the hurdle in the center, then lure your dog over the hurdle, then call them back over to hurdle the other way.
  • This drill is about speed, so the height of the hurdle should be relatively low, no higher than half their leg height (up to their hock/elbow)
  • Keep track of how many times they jump over the hurdle!

Sit

  • We are trying to see how many sits your dog can do within a minute!
  • Some dogs need to reset after each sit by walking around then sitting, some dogs can do a sit, stand, sit back to back. So do any combination that best suits your dog. Either way is fine just keep track of their sits so you can record it!
  • If you’re still trying to teach your dog sit, here’s an article explaining a few different ways to teach them: https://www.wikihow.pet/Teach-Your-Dog-to-Sit

Dog Push Ups (Sit, Down, Sit)

  • First place your dog in a sit, then lure them into a down. Once they’re in a down lure them back into a sit, that is one rep. 
  • Typically the hard part is luring them back into a sit from the down. It takes a little bit of practice to teach them to sit back up, but this is great for their shoulder muscles! 

Dog Burpees 

  • Kind of similar to your burpee and a dog push up, first place your dog in a down, then lure them up into a sit. 
  • Once in their sit, try to have them pop up for a dog hop for one rep. 
  • It takes some practice for your dog to figure out to pop up up out of the sit, but keep practicing and to make this more of a fluid move, going from a sit, down and pop up! 
  • Modified – your dog may sit up into “sit pretty” as they’re learning and that’s okay! Just be careful they don’t tip over and still keep working up into a hop. 

Stay until Failure

  • Place your dog in a stay.
  • If you’re still working on teaching your dog to stay, that’s fine.
  • If your dog can hold a stay for a longer period of time, try walking in to different rooms or add distractions to challenge them.
  • Keep track of the time to beat day one’s results!

Jumping Jacks

  • Stand with your feet hip distance apart, with your arms at your sides, then, simultaneously raise your arms out to the sides and over your head, and jump your feet out so they’re slightly more than shoulder-width apart. Quickly reverse the movement.
  • Try not to jump too wide to protect the knees and ankles.
  • Modified – Eliminate the jump and step out to the right and left for one rep while raising your arms above your head.
  • Try and have your hands touch every time they’re above your head to get full extension and don’t forget to count!

Squats

  • When doing your squats you want your feet a little more than shoulder width apart and sit back thru those hips as you go down. As you raise up standing tall and squeeze the glutes.
  • Options:
    • Squat & Pet -Have your dog sit and give them a pet each time you squat. They will have to focus to stay as they watch you.
    • Add some weight while keeping good form.
    • Modified – Sit into a chair and stand back up, trying not to use your hands as your raise.

Push Ups

  • Start in a plank postition with your shoulders stacked above your wrists
  • Lower your chest as close to the ground as you can while maintaining a straight line from your neck, shoulders and hips.
  • Modified – drop your knees to the ground and do the same thing.
  • Another modification is finding a wall and stepping a couple feet back and bring your nose as close to the wall as possible.
  • Don’t forget to count!

Burpees

  • Begin standing up nice and tall with your feet shoulder width apart. Next hop your feet back into a plank position with your wrists stacked under your shoulders, then hop your feet back in towards your chest and reach your arms up towards the ceiling adding a hop.
  • Modified is omitting the hops by stepping into plank position, then stepping your feet back, then standing up tall.
  • Advanced is to add a push up after you go into plank position.

Plank until Failure

  • When doing your plank you want to try and keep everything straightly aligned with your hips up and shoulders stacked above your wrists.
  • You can do your plank on your hands or your forearms if you have wrist issues.
  • Modified plank can be bird dog pose or on your knees.
  • Make sure to keep track of time when you start and end to beat day one’s results!

Cool Down

Cooling down after working out is important as it allows deeper stretching and allowing the muscle tissues to lengthen. Stretching returns the muscle to its natural elongated state. It also helps prevent tightness and soreness which can lead to injury.

For your dog, stretches that they can control themselves is best compared to you stretching them. Wall Stretch, Paws Up, Bow, Neck Stretches, Quad Stretch, High Five are great since they can control how much resistance they want and how long to hold it. Typically 10-30 seconds is a good time frame for their stretches and then focus on massaging them! This is typically their favorite part and massaging helps prevent soreness. You can focus massaging their entire body focusing on the hips, shoulders, neck and belly. This is a great time to check for lumps and bumps, inside their ears and mouth for any foul smells as they are typically more relaxed and will let you look. Massages are great as stretching your dog should only be done if you have knowledge of the canine anatomy. Check out this book for more info on stretching your dog. 

Since we worked on our entire body today, we want to focus on full-body stretches. There are many types of stretches to choose from, choose a variety each time: hamstrings, quads and inner thighs like Warrior One, Side Lunge Holds, Figure 4,  Calves, Wide Leg Stretch and butterfly. Upper body stretches like Cat/Cow, Spinal Twist, Child’s Pose, Neck Rolls, Thread the Needle and many more! Hold each stretch for about 10 – 30 seconds. 5-20 minutes is a good time frame for cooling down. Also before ending your cool down, do 3-10 deep breaths, inhale in thru your nose and exhale out your mouth, releasing any tension and end the day with giving your dog a hug.
