Expanded Description:

We are pleased to announce the re-release on DVD of Suzanne Clothier's classic video, YOUR ATHLETIC DOG: A FUNCTIONAL APPROACH.

Originally released back in 1995, Your Athletic Dog was a finalist for Best Video from the Dog Writers Association of America. This groundbreaking video was ahead of its time. Clothier went beyond the traditional structural approach to look at the role of functional movement as an aspect of athletic ability.

20 years later, the information in Your Athletic Dog remains accurate, timely and helpful to any serious handler interested in understanding their dog's body and helping their canine athlete remain sound and active. Clothier's systematic approach uses observation, gait analysis and hands-on work to assess functional athletic ability. Specifics are provided on using massage, stretching, and veterinarian approved exercises to increase flexibility and improve function. Exercise physiology basics are also presented so that handlers can make informed decisions about conditioning and training.

Topics covered:

The Functional Assessment

• Overall Picture
• Quality of Movement
• Joint Flexion
• The Back
• Foot Placement & Body Alignment
• Moving On A Circle
• Red Flags

Exercise With A Purpose

• Passive Stretching
• Biscuit Stretches
• Cavalletti
• Serpentines
• Gradient Work – Walk, Gallop & Cross Gradient

The 100 page workbook that accompanies the DVD offers further details, including "Try It Yourself" exercises to help handlers understand the biomechanics involved for their dogs. A sport specific troubleshooting chart helps handlers zero in on possible functional challenges that may be at the root of training or performance problems.

Regardless of the breed or the individual dog's structure, Your Athletic Dog is aimed at helping handlers understand how to help their canine athletes remain sound and functional, performing at their very best, whatever the sport may be.

A great resource, December 28, 2016
Reviewer: Glenn Massie
A dog may have the desire and motivation for an activity but their body may not be up to the task. This book and DVD will assist you in learning how to observe and evaluate the form and function of your dog and offers a guide to proper care and conditioning for your companion and or athletic. Although the video is dated because it was produced over twenty years ago the information presented in Your Athletic Dog is as relevant today as it was when the video was originally made. The workbook and DVD are highly recommended as is anything Suzanne Clothier produces.
