This Certified Canine Strength and Conditioning Coach program will provide the participant with hands-on experience.  Participants will be guided through a standardized canine posture assessment, exercise form, and program design with live dogs.  In addition hands-on experiences for selected equipment used in canine fitness and conditioning are incorporated including balance, strength, cardio, flexibility, and mental foundation elements. This course also provides the participant with the basic fitness assessment skills necessary to create an exercise program for dogs. Topics covered include basic exercise physiology, dog training, gait training, strengthening exercises, balance and proprioceptive exercises, and exercises for wellness/prevention.

During the Certified Canine Strength and Condition Coach hands-on lab each student will demonstrate that they understand concepts learned in the online portion of the course.   Students will also demonstrate exercises with their dog or a dog that is provided and will participate in a mock class to practice the concepts learned in the online environment.   Preparing for and teaching in person and online private lessons will be demonstrated.

Two weeks after the lab, the instructors will provide a coaching call to answer questions to help you successfully complete the two case studies (three case studies for virtual attendees).
