Head Turns in a Stand
Purpose – Highly effective for working on strengthening the postural muscles. Works on adductors, abductors and core strength.
Criteria – Dog can maintain correct stand without falling over. Dog keeps all feet still while you move their heads around. Try to keep their head from twisting too.
Placement of reward – For this exercise I use a food lure to control the dogs head turns. Just watch that the position you are holding their food doesn’t make their stand position lose form.
Increasing difficulty – Moving to angled board or front end up on a prop for extra weight on the rear. Unstable equipment like the Propel air.
