As our dogs age it’s so important to keep their muscles strong and their joints mobile.

Keeping up their regular walks is important …

… but have you ever thought of introducing some gentle strength exercises for your older dog and give them their very own workout?

I’d like to share with you 3 simple exercises in the video below, you can do easily at home that will help to improve your older dog’s balance, hind limb awareness and strengthen key stabilising mucles …

… so you can keep them stronger for longer.

In the video we are using pool noodles and dog beds, but you can use anything that your dog can step over and have their balance challenged on …

… such as cushions, foam or a mattress.

The key is to make sure it is a moderately unstable surface to help challenge their stabilising and postural muscles.
