This book is split into four levels of increasing difficulty. Each level builds upon previous skills with exercises that have been vetted to be effective and safe. Learn innovative ways to work with props such as hoops, balls, inflatables and ladders as your dog improves in five components of fitness: flexibility, balance, stamina, coordination and strength.
