Approved and Vetted Fitness Techniques

Although this Canine Conditioning and Fitness program has been extensively researched and reviewed by a panel of experts in the field, we recognize that any physical endeavor comes with risk. Please evaluate each dog and exercise before attempting a skill, and, if necessary, consult with your veterinarian or other expert. Please see the top expert reviewer bios at the back of Kyra’s Canine Conditioning book. 


Substitutions for an Exercise

If a particular skill is unfeasible due to physical or behavioral difficulties, the coach may specify a substitution at their discretion. An exercise may be considered unfeasible if:

  • The exercise is not well suited for the breed
  • The exercise is unsafe because of a dog’s health issues 
  • You do not have access to the required equipment
  • It is causing undue fear or reactivity in the dog
