Rehab Protocol

EXERCISE BASICS

  • Ensure your dog is healthy to begin exercise. Consult your canine health professional before beginning this or any exercise program. 

  • Always check for proper body alignment while performing exercises. Watch to ensure back and neck are neutral. Front limbs and hind limbs should support weight safely. Avoid over extension of limbs, neck, and back. 

  • Perform an equal number of exercise repetitions on both sides of the body. 
  • Start slow and build up. 3-5 repetitions is adequate for dogs beginning an exercise program. 
  • Never over-exercise or over-tire your dog. Always watch for and listen to signs of tiredness or exhaustion.
  • We recommend your dog use a safety harness, while exercising on the equipment.

Hurdle and Gait Exercises

Set the height based on your desired Intensity Level (lowest height = lowest intensity). Ask your dog to walk, run, or jump over the bars with an attempt to knock over as few as possible. Raise the Intensity Level as desired to challenge your dog.

Figure of 8 Exercises

Set up the cones in a straight line with a few feet between each cone. Ask your dog to walk or run between the cones in a swerving fashion. You may add bars to increase the Intensity Level once they have mastered walking and running between the cones.
