Agility Dog Strength Training with the Ladder Walk

We have seen the ladder in many videos for body awareness foundation work as well as core and rear end strength building.

This is a very well made video showing how to start your dog on the ladder work that is easy to understand.

Some will actually put the treats on the ground between the rungs to encourage the dog to go slow and keep their head down while going through the ladder.

Remember that the ladder walk is a strength training exercise so start with a few minutes once or twice a day.

As your dog gets stronger you can increase the time, add another ladder or even raise the ladder to encourage your dog to step higher.
