What is the investment of
Training the dog walk safely?
Like most dog sport enthusiasts (like me!) you could spend years learning how to train all these fitness exercises.
Eventually, after countless hours researching online and taking one online course after another, you will make progress. Are you willing to wait for that long?
Online courses start from around $65. The ideas for the concepts in Beyond Dog Sports: Dog Walk come from workshops that are $400 and above.
These courses may give you some exercises, but none of them will tell you how to use them for dog walk training.
So you will spend $530, if not more, on at least 3 separate courses teaching body awareness, balance and movement concepts for coordination training.
And you still won't have any idea how to set up the exercises so that they would transfer over to real dog walk training.
You can hire a coach 1:1. Common rate for 1:1 fitness coaching is $600/month. Most dogs need 1-2 months of targeted exercises. So you're looking at $600-1200+.
But there really aren't other coaches who teach movement focused exercises!
These options may work, but they are pricey and missing the benefits of working alongside like minded community, learning from and with other people with the same goal!
Not to mention wasting valuable time with your dog when trying to mix and match different courses...
If you're like me, you want to make huge leaps in your dog walk training without feeling like your dog is the only one struggling (he's not!).
The only logical solution is to take a specialized training with a community of other people working towards the same goals.
