A secret to a long and injury-free agility career:
Tricks for balance, strength and coordination - definitely the tricks that my dogs do most often from all the tricks they know, as a part of their conditioning program and their warm up routines!

Hi Silvia, I am loving this DVD ( Balance and Coordination)! With the 2 paws off, I am having trouble with staying there, while I throw the treat. I click/ treat while he’s there, but as soon as I throw the treat out in front of him, he goes after it. What am I missing? Thanks! -Emily
Try to proof his stays until a release with first just with your movement + hand gestures as if you’re tossing -- without actually tossing it. Once he knows to stay until a release, try dropping food too, but just drop it at first -- and cover it with your hand if he leaves the position. Then make it harder gradually, making it more&more of a toss next.
Is this DVD a good idea for a displasic dog? or should i go for one of the other 2 tricks dvds?
Depends on how severely dysplastic? If the dog is in pain, then these tricks are not appropriate. But if the dog isn’t having problems and it’s just X-ray that show dysplasia, then it’s actually great as building more muscle means less stress on the joint.
Only mid dysplasia, she is not in pain, but the vet told me to work the rear and workout more without a lot of running, so i wanted to teach some tricks, i already got my fitpaws equipment, still a month or so until it arrives but i can start on some tricks 😛
Yes, tricks for strengthening would be great for her then!
