Alphie is a six-month old Labrador Retriever puppy in the Puppies Behind Bars Program. Over the years I have given multiple in-services on puppy and adult conditioning and have donated conditioning equipment to the program. The staff and puppy raisers are always incredibly receptive and work hard to ensure the puppies are successful.
Recently, I was giving a seminar reviewing foundation exercises and teaching advanced conditioning exercises. Alphie’s puppy raiser mentioned that she had some concerns with Alphie’s hind end movement. I took a quick look and offered to have him examined at Aqua Paws. He is currently working on core and hind end strengthening.
