    Bobbie has earned several canine fitness certifications and has been training dogs for almost 20 years, 13 of those years have been dedicated to fitness as it relates to performance. She is part of the “design team” for the Fitpaws Trainer Program.
    I got to know Bobbie as a barrel full of knowledge and somebody who shares that knowledge with passion. Her experience and sharp eye for correct body position and movement make her into an expert in Fitness and Body Awareness Training.
    The awareness of the need of Fitness and Body Awareness Training for dogs is still young in Belgium and Europe. In the US canine strength and fitness training is accepted as part of the training program for performance dogs.

    Why should we try to invent the wheel over again when we can lean on the rich experience of people like Bobbie? Modern dog performance sports ask for more than sport specific technique training. It is important to provide our dogs the training they need to become the athletes we expect them to be, with as first objective decreasing the chance of injury.

    Besides that Fitness and Conditioning programs provide a healthy activity for every dog, even the companion dog.
    Bobbie summarizes it perfectly in her philosophy:

    “Using a variety of methods, I train strength and body awareness exercises that activate more muscles in the dog’s movement, while moving the dog equally on both sides and in all directions, which inspires efficient movement with less effort and decreases the chance of injury” Bobbie Lyons, CCFT, FP-MTI, Cert C.F
