There's more to cavalettis than stride work!
In this class, you'll learn how versatile cavalettis can be. The course is packed full of a wide variety of exercises covering in-depth what you can do with cavalettis for strength, gait, and limb awareness. There are over 20 exercises to work on.
This is a great class to keep your dog strong and their stride length long during hot and cold months when it's hard to get outside for longer activities.
Why take this class?
