Fitness and Conditioning Consulations

Custom Fitness and Conditioning Program

You will receive a custom program to reach your goals for your dog. The exercises used, number of exercises, and progressions will be decided individually for each dog. Typically it will take 3-4 months to complete the program. I will teach you the proper way to train your dog to do all the exercises using platforms, foot targets and any other equipment we made need. If you do not have equipment, we will work to make a program that will benefit your dog with props that you do have.

The Custom Fitness and Conditioning Program can be in person or online.

All dogs must be cleared by their vet prior to implementing an exercise program. (No injuries, health concerns, or compromised in any way per vet's evaluation.)

Custom Fitness and Conditioning Program is $350.

Canine Massage

Certified Canine Massage Provider
Brenda Cronk

The benefits of Canine Massage are numerous... It can improve blood flow, mobility, flexibility, the immune system, and performance.

Canine Massage can alleviate stress, reduce limping, stiffness, and soreness, and even help speed up rehabilitation of injuries. In addition to decreasing your dog's pain, massage can help prevent repeat injuries and reduce the effects of age-related disorders.

The Lang Institute for Canine Massage is a Colorado state-approved program that requires 688 HOURS for certification.

Brenda, professional dog trainer with JRT PiperHi! My name is Brenda Cronk and I have been involved in dog training since I was 11 years old and trained my Cocker Spaniel, Roxie, in 4-H. Dogs have been a huge part of my life since then.

I have worked as a groomer and trainer for the last 20 years. I have been certified as a Canine Massage Provider and am a CPCFT (Certified Professional Canine Fitness Trainer) and AKC CGC Evaluator.

I live in Western Colorado where there are not many opportunities to trial, so training and problem solving have become my passion. I am always looking for a better way to train so that the dogs understand exactly what their job is and how to get it done in a fun and positive way. This is how I came upon using body awareness and props to teach Rally.

StormyI started training my youngest dog, an almost two-year-old Border Collie named Stormy, using body awareness exercises and props to learn all the body movements she would need for the Rally signs and was amazed by the results!

Out of the last four dogs I have trained in Rally, she learned the quickest, has the best precision of movements, and is the happiest worker! I had videos of her training sessions and came up with my Rally training program - Rally A2Z - using those exercises.

I love training dogs and helping owners get the best results they can while making sure that both members of the team are having fun!

My dogs have received titles in AKC Rally (RE), Cyber Rally-O (L-2), All Dogs Parkour, Musical Freestyle, Agility, Barnhunt, FastCat, Obedience, and Tricks.

You can see a few videos of me working my dogs on my websites TipTopDogsFitness.com and RallyA2Z.com. You can also follow my Facebook, YouTube, or Vimeo pages to see more videos. Additionally, all of my online dog training classes include several videos in each course.

I would love the opportunity to teach you and your dogs using fun, useful exercises that will improve their health and help them excel in competitions.
