At our K-9 Academy we offer various online courses from understanding puppy foundations, knowing when you should train your dog or rest him, key ingredients to be included in your fitness program and loads more!


We provide structured learning because I understand that learning is useless if you don't know how to use it.  At our Academy we put the theory and your learning into practice. Our regular Q & A sessions encourage questions because there is no such thing as a dumb question when it comes to our dogs!


If there is anything you would like to learn more about or have a particular interest in when it comes to your dog's fitness and conditioning, please send me an email and I will be happy to develop a course to help through all your concerns.

In all things - Balance!


The Biokinetic K-9 is for all dogs!

Whether they are  your happy-go-lucky couch king, pet zoomies expert, sporting dog or working dog.


Whether your dog is the energetic companion or less active senior, if they are don't have good overall body condition, they are prone to joint and soft tissue (muscle and ligament) injuries.

The Biokinetic K-9 develops Balanced Fitness and Conditioning Program is specifically for any dog of any age and activity level.  


Each program looks to:

  • lose weight safely
  • prevent injuries
  • improve health 
  • achieving trial or competition readiness 
  • help you enjoy your dog and so much more!

Why have a Balanced program?

Consider:  veterinary costs, x-rays, possible out-of-the-blue surgeries, rehab, medications for simple (or not so simple!) knee, shoulder or those niggling soft tissue injuries.

 

Sure, these can happen to any dog at any time.  The likelihood is much higher for a dog that is not in good physical shape. Even worse, the recovery is so much longer and harder for a dog that is not fit enough to cope with the stress of an injury.


For a sporting or working dog, this situation is simply worse because the down time is so much more difficult.


The investment and benefits of a Biokinetic K-9 program far outweighs the veterinary bill, rehab and training down time!

Generic training programs cannot provide the results you want for your dog.

It is quite simple:
Prevention is the key
!

What We Do

When your dog is so much more than just a pet - (s)he's an athlete - that special buddy in your life!  


Whether you train or compete in:

  • agility, flyball, hunt-point-retrieve trials, protection and impact sports (IGP, PSA), the conformation ring, dock diving, lure coursing, search and detection sports
  • or your dog is a working dog such as search and rescue, anti-poaching, police work, narcotics or explosive detection dogs,
  • or you just have a really active dog
  • or maybe your dog is a little podgy around the edge or is entering his twilight years
  • or you have a young puppy, perhaps from working lines, that you would like to raise correctly and safely

be the hero your dog needs and enter into a safe exercise program that is designed with YOUR dog in mind!

You've come to the right place!!


What's the one common result?  

Confidence that your training partner is here to motivate and support you in achieving

your performance goals and with that, the increased good times with your dog!


Our Goals:

Longevity of injury preventative training that increases:

 stamina, strength, muscle balance and tone, flexibility,  speed, power and more!


To make you and your dog stand out from the crowd whether you are competing

or simply enjoying your dog on the beach!


How do we do this:

Ensure that handlers and owner enjoy their pups to dogs to seniors and that these dogs

enjoy what they do for longer through specifically designed training programs

designed specifically for your dog and the sport they do.


Let’s be honest - part of the package of "letting your dog do what it was bred to do"

is being responsible for ensuring their safety while asking for their best performance. 


In the same way, generic training programs won't and cannot

give you the results you desire.


Come Join Us!

Be part of an exclusive, intimate, knowledgeable team here for you and your dog.  

We are here at each step of your journey to achieving super times with your dog.

We would love for you to  become part of our family!

     my Attica enjoys our training with them!     

We LOVE going for walks and our fitness program is fun and easy to do! Attica really gets excited when it's time to "train" because she knows that training is where she gets to not only learn new things, but also gets to show off what she knows and has learned.

 Best part is, any extra training is no more than 10 - 15 minutes a day and gets incorporated into our normal sport training routine at the club. 

And best of all, I now know how to train safely, so Attica stays fitter for longer!

Thanks to The Biokinetick K-9 Team
