Stretching the Performance Dog
Debbie Gross Saunders

Dogs that compete in agility and other performance sports are athletes, and need to be treated as such. Stretching prepares the athletic body for movement from inactive to active without strain. You can improve your dog's performance by stretching before and after a training session or competition. This will also aid in the prevention of many common injuries.

Many common sport-dog injuries do not happen spontaneously, but develop over time through continuous strain. This is why there are so many soft-tissue problems in performance dogs. These problems can be reduced or prevented with proper stretching, warm-up, and cool-down.

In this DVD, Debbie Gross Saunders will show you steps for stretching your performance dog.
