YOUR ATHLETIC DOG VIDEO & WORKBOOK by Suzanne Clothier

This video combines gait analysis with exercise physiology in a functional (not structural) approach to the canine athlete. The result? Winning techniques for maximizing performance, minimizing the risk of injury, and an approach that helps handlers make humane training choices by deepening their understanding of what their dog can, and cannot, do.

     Your Athletic Dog teaches Clothier's step-by-step approach to gait assessment & evaluating  functional limitations that affect performance and health. This video shows you how to use simple, veterinarian approved exercises (stretching, cavalletti & more) to improve and maintain flexibility, balance and strength, reduce the risk of injury, and help keep active dogs of any age or breed functioning at their very best.

     Whatever your breed or dog sport, Your Athletic Dog offers the practical advice that serious handlers need to keep their canine athletes performing to their full potential and injury free.
