Real Dog Yoga

Real Dog Yoga

Perfect for springy springers, boisterous bully breeds and chatty chihuahuas, this discipline is taking the world by storm – the ultimate in permission based training.

Real dog Yoga is perfect for:

 

  • Recovering from surgery
  • Old or Arthritic dogs
  • Fearful dogs
  • Over excited dogs
  • Dogs on limited exercise
  • Dogs going through rehabilitation programmes
  • Handling and husbandry
  • Dogs with poor communication skills
  • Stretching for sports dogs
  • Great mental stimulation and enrichment

Real dog yoga ultimately involves teaching dogs to express and hold specific body postures, expressions and actions that stimulate the *parasympathetic nervous system and help them to become or remain calm.

We train yoga using a permission based method on a yoga mat where the dog can communicate signals that they need to opt out at any point. Using this method dogs will start to trust they have choices, and will opt in more often than opt out of training! Regular breaks are taken following a protocol to ensure that emotional stressors such as frustration do not complicate learning patterns.

Real Dog Yoga can be taught at any age, any breed of dog with any age owner using positive reward methods.

*The parasympathetic system calms the body. It promotes routine activities, such as digesting your food. It slows the heart rate. It sends blood to the digestive tract. The parasympathetic nervous system secretes the neurochemical acetylcholine, which is the “key” leading to relaxation. The lowering of heart rate and blood pressure and the reduction of muscle tension are produced by the parasympathetic branch. Stress management techniques aim to induce a positive parasympathetic state.
