Frequently Asked Questions

🐾My dog is very high energy and challenging to focus, can they still do fitness?

Yes. High energy is a good trait for dogs who participate in fitness. We sometimes forget that our dogs not only have physical energy but also mental energy. By having your dog thinking about where they are placing their feet and positioning their body, works to relieve both physical and mental energy.

It is also good for the hard to motivate dog, as the success of accomplishing the activity is very motivating for the dog.
