Podcast Session 1: What is Consistency?

Recently, a student sent me an email asking how she could improve her consistency. It got me thinking about just what consistency IS, and how the question itself is a little misleading. Just what IS consistency, and what can you do about changing the type of consistent behavior you're currently engaged in?

Podcast Session 3: Thoughts on using verbals on course

As usual, a student email has prompted me to create another podcast.  This one is on the use of verbal cues on course, and how my usage of verbal cues may differ from your usage.  But, I do think that the way I think about and use verbal cues on course makes a huge difference […]

Podcast Session 5: Bang for your Buck

Of course, there are a lot of factors that go in to what we pay for a working or auditing spot in a seminar; how much the seminar presenter is charging, how much it costs to get them to the seminar site, the rental fees for the arena or building where the seminar is being held. Those are just the basics. Then there are other costs; assuming that the organizer has done a lot of legwork to put the whole thing together, it's reasonable that they should not have to pay $$ for the seminar themselves, as they've already paid in other ways. Listen to this podcast for more…

Podcast Session 13: An Interview With Bobbie Lyons

In this week's podcast, I conclude my series of interviews with my fellow instructors at my DaisyPeel.com Online Classroom. Last, but certainly not least, is Bobbie Lyons, who approached me last year about teaching in the Online Classroom. Well, it's been over a year, and I'm happy to say that not only have *I* benefited from having her in my virtual classroom, but dozens and dozens of people and their dogs, who wouldn't normally have access to the type of instruction Bobbie provides, have benefited as well!

Canine Conditioning Tips

Below is a collection of podcasts Bobbie Lyons has contributed over the years. Enjoy!

Avoiding Iliopsoas Injury – Doubles, Triples and Broad Jumps

  Do you practice doubles, triples and broad jumps regularly??? Often when I am teaching a workshop, I ask agility competitors –  “How often do you practice doubles, triples or spread jumps”?   I have to say many of them answer “only at a competition”.    Sigh Many instructors don’t set these jumps up due to time […]

Sustained Trotting

Sustained trotting increases endurance, improves physical health, and keeps the lumbar area loose and your dog’s hips rotating independently. Trotting lengthens and strengthens the spine, strengthens core muscles and improves gait function. Trot work is great for dogs that are older than one year old, in good health and not over-weight. Definition of a Balanced Trot: “This […]

Changes in movement

It is important, especially with a performance dog, to understand normal movement and what is not normal for your dog, so you can be proactive about keeping your dog strong and injury free. Many people can see differences in a dog’s gait when watching them move BUT many cannot or think these things are “normal for […]

Better, Faster, Stronger

Many things go into keeping your dog in good “condition” and how performance is improved.    Improved performance can mean many things.   Listed below is what I perceive as improving performance through handler improvements, strength improvements and increasing endurance.BETTER:    Handling is a huge key.  How many handlers out there feel like they are the caboose on […]

What kind of conditioning program is needed for herding sheep?

Yesterday I took Riley to a herding lesson.   This was our first lesson back after a couple years off.   So of course this got me thinking about what I need to change about his conditioning program.  What is different about how he uses his body and what do I need to do differently to keep […]

Breaks in Strength Training

Trial and competition schedules, vacation, injury and life all contribute to K9 Conditioning exercises being pushed down on the priority list.  Just like with human exercise, if breaks are taken from K9 Conditioning workouts just start back with lower intensity exercises and slowly build back up to the level before the break occurred. Don’t beat […]

“Power through” or Proper Rehab – Soft Tissue Injury in Performance Dogs

Soft tissue injury is the most common injury in performance dogs and it is one of the hardest injuries to pin point or diagnose.  If your dog has a suspected soft tissue injury, see a veterinarian that specializes in working with performance dogs.   Most “regular” veterinarians won't see the subtle changes in gait and function […]

Thoughts on Canine Cross Training

In the human world the term “cross-training” is used quite often to suggest that doing different types of strength, balance and coordination training helps to improve performance. The canine world works much the same way.

K9 Conditioning Considerations…

If you are in the process of designing a program for your dog I hope this list of considerations helps you to pick exercises that are appropriate for your dog's age, current physical condition and the activities you are involved in. I also hope that it you have not sought out proper training, that this will encourage you to do so.

Preventing a Psoas injury – training spread jumps

Do you practice doubles, triples and spread jumps regularly??? Often when I am teaching a workshop, I ask agility competitors –  “How often do you practice doubles, triples or spread jumps”?   I have to say many of them answer “only at a competition”.    Sigh Many instructors don’t set these jumps up due to time constraints.  […]

A Note on Puppies

Teaching a puppy body awareness and weight distribution exercises at an early age helps the puppy grow into a confident, well balanced and coordinated dog. I start teaching my clients these types of exercises when their puppies are just 8 -12 weeks old. I adjust duration of exercise or repetitions to the age, ability and attention […]

Exercise Progression

I have been thinking a lot lately about  “exercises progression”.  In the human world, we know that we can’t go to the gym and do the same amount of repetitions with the same weight every time and improve over all strength and body composition.   We know that number of repetitions and/or the amount of weight […]

Exercise for Sprint Athletes

Successful Collaboration – Return to Performance

Recently I wrote about the team approach to K9 Fitness and how collaboration between professionals in the veterinary, rehabilitation and fitness fields are important.  Because I refer clients regularly for diagnostics and diagnosis, I receive referrals from those professionals when no discernible problem exists, the dog is released to normal activity or a strength or training issue is discovered.A […]

Staying Under Theshold

One of my favorite topics to teach dog owners is “focus and self-control” and it goes hand in hand with K9 conditioning.   Slow and controlled movements in specific positions cannot be obtained if your dog is over threshold.    Learning to work with a dog under threshold is a puzzle. It is a truly rewarding experience […]

Podcast Session 14: Participating in an Online Classroom

Wow, it's been over a YEAR since my last podcast! One of my New Year's Resolutions is to publish podcasts more frequently – I'm a big fan of podcasts myself, as I'm on the road quite frequently, and so hopefully, this will be the first of many more to come. This one is short and sweet, just a little something to get you thinking as you venture in to your next online learning experience.

In this episode, I talk about the different levels of participation in online learning environments, and why participation in an online classroom might NOT be right for you!

Happy Training, and Happy New Year!
