Neck Stretches

Purpose – working on neck and spinal flexibility. 

Criteria – All feet stay still for the nose to shoulder and nose to mid ribs. Back feet stay still for the others.

Placement of reward – For this exercise, I will lure the dog nose to the different points. Reward after holding for 10 – 30 secs

Training Tips – Try to keep their nose travelling in a nice direction for the stretch. If they are tight just reward small increments till they get looser. You can use something to lick to get the duration better. I often stand beside them to stop body movement initially but having them on foot targets if they know them can help too.
