Exercises for plucky dogs

This is Meja.
Today she is going to show us some exercises we can do with a human and a very long stick.
First, we warm up with a little tug-o-war.
This strengthens your jaws, neck and back wonderfully!
Then we do a precision exercise; lungeing your human. Make sure to keep her running in a smooth circle and at an even pace.
This is good for balance and legs. Remember not to clench your jaw too tightly, as you may stress your human!
Moving on then to the high jumps, a popular exercise for most dogs!
Excellent exercise for lower back and hind legs. Just get your human to keep the stick high enough; you want to work those muscles well!
And finally…
… don’t forget to stretch!
Well, that’s all from Meja today. And remember: once you’re done, you can always use the stick for a good chew!

(Thanks, of course, to Meja’s human, Maria, who assisted in these exercises…)
