About the event
Introduction to Hind End Awareness.
Did you know that most dogs to not necessaitly know where there back legs are going? Considered frint wheel drive animals, the dog generally moves into positions by moving teh front of thier body. The rear end, connected by the spine just follows along.
However it is possible to teach the dogs to be aware of the back legs and the placement of them.
Why would you do this? Well if you are into sports such obedience, it will help you gain the accuarcy in postioning that you require. If you are ding tricks, having the ability to place inidviual paws can help you. However the most imoartnat part of HEA is that you are teaching your dog to use muslces that they otherwise may use. This can help your dog in muitple ways, including helping to prevent/minimise joint issues but is of great benefit to general health.
