Suzanne Clothier is an internationally respected trainer, lecturer and author whose most current book is Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs (Warner, 2002). Her holistic, relationship based approach to dog training includes her well known, thorough approach to gait analysis. She believes that humane training begins with a deep understanding of what the dog physically can and cannot do, and notes that many training problems have their roots in physical causes. Step by step, she leads the viewer to a deeper understanding of how the dog - through his movements and through the results of hands-on assessment - can tell us a great deal about his physical abilities and even point us to potential problems that may limit his performance or even open the door for injuries. Keeping your canine athlete sound and safe as he enjoys life is the goal of this video's producer/director/author, Suzanne Clothier.From the Contributor:
The "cast" of Your Athletic Dog are the world's best teachers - dogs themselves! Ranging from a young Wheaten terrier puppy to an aging Akita, each dog helps us learn more about the wealth of information that can be gleaned from observing dogs with a knowledgeable eye. Using slow motion and real speed video, these dogs will help you educate your eye and deepen your understanding of the many elements that work together to create a canine athlete. Gather your own dog up for massage & stretching session, happily demonstrated by a 13 year old Golden Retriever named MacIntosh!
