Train, Go, Do

From couch potato to elite athlete and puppy to senior, all dogs can benefit from cross training. It helps build body awareness, strength, and flexibility. All which can lead to less chance of injury, better energy levels, and more fun! The process of doing the exercises with your dog can increase your bond and your dog's willingness to please you.

Fit, Fast, Strong

Playing catch, running on the beach and going for walks are great for keeping your dog moving and engaged. To keep your dog moving well for as long as possible they need strong muscles, good balance, flexibility and mental challenges. K9 Cross Training can do all that so you and your dog can spend more quality time together.

Active, Redux

Has your dog been injured or is their mobility impaired? Physical Therapy is a great way to help them regain function.
Cross Training picks up when Physical Therapy is done, helping to enhance function by continuing to build strength, balance, flexibility and body awareness so you can continue to enjoy activities together.
