Canine fitness is a passion, and I am happy to offer fitness training for your puppy, adult dog or senior dog.

The focus is on safety, gentle handling, and your dog’s comfort.

Seeing the dogs progress and improve from week to week in terms of strength and flexibility is gratifying!   I love helping the dogs and their owners. 

We can utilize some household items for their fitness training, or you can purchase items from Totofit.

You will need a harness that doesn’t restrict movement and a short leash to attach on the back of the harness.

There is a registration form to complete prior to our first appointment. Dogs need veterinarian’s approval to begin a fitness program.


Fitness training is 4 weekly sessions. The first session is 60 minutes, and remaining 3 sessions are 30 to 45 minutes.

Package Price: $320.00

Single session: $105.00


Regular household type items that can be used for fitness training: low stool, folded/rolled towels, foam balance pads, inflatable balance discs, sloping paths/hillsides, yoga mats (rolled/folded or used as non slip surface on smooth floors), pool noodles, pvc pipe and pillows.

Fitness training is 4 weekly sessions. The first session is 60 minutes, and remaining 3 sessions are 30 to 45 minutes.

Aids in recovery from injuries

And there’s more benefits!


One of my dogs, Remington, suffered a freak injury end of May 2018, resulting in a herniated disc in his thoracic vertebrae area, resulting in difficulty using his rear legs. You can read about his diagnosis and recovery / rehabilitation here.
