    Here’s Jake’s attempt. He’s better at stretching forward than moving back.

  • Sandy & Karma says:

    One more thing Leslie I should ask you while I am thinking of it when you look at our video and see the 2 blue 3″ platforms that I use often for Karma, do you think it would be a good investment for me to also have the same size platform only in 2″ high….do you think that would be a significant difference for different variation in our exercises? The gal that made me the 3″ high ones is offering to make me 2″ for half price since she has an excess of the foam on hand at the moment.

    • Coach Leslie says:

      I don’t think it would make that much difference for Karma but if you are going to work with smaller dogs it could be helpful. You could also stack the two for more of a challenge.

  • Sandy & Karma says:

    Good morning Leslie, here is our first attempt of video for “Good Mornings”…………I think we have a few reps where she is stretching out nicely without moving her feet…..lmk what you think!

  • Carol R says:

    Good Mornings from Bounce and Strut. For sure, need to work on front feet stillness.

  • Jerry says:

    I need some advice on forward backward weight shift. Especially backwards!

  • kcferg says:

    Hi Leslie, here is our first attempt at Sit Bends and Good Mornings. Are we on the right track?

  • Dawn Warnock says:

    Here’s our Good Mornings…used foot targets to stop the dancing feet and being careful not to get the full play bow which Rio knows too well! 🤣

  • Cindy and Force says:

    Here’s our attempts at Good Mornings!

  • Sandy & Karma says:

    Is it ok to encourage these forward stretches on an incline? For example, I use a ramp for Karma (and her senior “sister”) to go in and out of my car. More times than not, when I ask Karma to “load up”…..she places her front paws on the ramp, and walks the paws up until she has a nice forward stretch through her head/neck. If I am rewarding this with food, she will keep stretching, holding that stretch for at least 10 seconds. Then I gently rock her paws back down and make sure she is firmly planted before asking her to actually go up the ramp into my car. Hard to explain…making sense? It is just a stretching position that she seems to choose on her own.

    • Coach Leslie says:

      Yes and no. There is nothing wrong with doing them on an incline but you are loading the rear paws while doing it (see Front Paw Target goals). I would still do this on the flat when using it for warm ups, cool downs, and flexibility workouts.
