Exercise Your Agility Dog With a Gym Ball

Some really great examples of exercises and stretches you can do with your dog while he is balancing on a ball.

It may not look like much from the outside, but under all that fur the dog’s muscles are working like crazy.

Merely balancing on the ball even with just the front feet takes use of the muscles in the back, abdomen and legs.

It’s like a complete workout in a relatively short time, so be sure you take it slow and give your dog lots of breaks.

As your dog becomes better with his balance you can start asking more of him, but be careful with larger dogs.

On human gym balls their toenails could pop the ball, for more rigorous training you will want to purchase a ball that is designed for dogs.
