Anyways, I asked my husband to make me full platforms so that I would have something to engage their rear legs with and work on rear end/leg awareness. So my husband got to work on them and they are so cool! He even painted them pink and added shooting stars!
Also, as a surprise he made me a wobble board, too!! I have been wanting a wobble board for so long and I am really excited about it. It is his first try making one and it's not perfect so we are talking about making another but this one works for now.
A wobble board is used to teach the dog balance and for core-strengthening. Balance training is really useful for all sorts of things from body awareness and confidence to learning how to navigate a teeter in Agility training. They can also be used for targeting specific limbs for muscle strengthening.
I recently watched Pat Miller's Seminar dvds "Real Solutions for Canine Behavioral Problems" and someone was able to successfully cure their dog's car sickness by using a wobble board. I am thrilled to hear this and am excited about working with Phoenix on it because she has terrible motion sickness when we travel. I would also highly recommend a Tawzer Dog dvd subscription to anyone who wants to learn a ton about all things dog related. I am very happy with my subscription. They have multiple options starting at $10/month. Tawzer Dog Rental Program
