We tend to concentrate on primary movers (big muscle groups of the rear legs and front legs), because we want a powerful and muscular dog, but often forget about this important link between front and rear - the core. The importance of the core is to provide efficient front and rear limb work. If this system (abdominals, lower back) is not efficient, the body is not going to respond to all of the high demands placed on it while our dogs are running, jumping, and turning. 

if you are already doing fitness exercises, or are interested in starting them with your dog, you need to understand the dog’s neutral position, weight distribution, and what is happening during specific actions, activities or sports performances - how and why something as simple as the direction your dog is looking in can affect your dog’s body, AND how to use this to your advantage when doing fitness!

Age is not a disease, however throughout the aging process many physical, metabolic and psychological changes take place that affect the health and mental state of older dogs. Their immune system decreases, as well as other organ systems, and as a result older dogs are more susceptible to various diseases and ailments. However, this is not a reason to exclude our oldie from active and social life.
