Proprioception Membership

Train at home at your own speed | taught by Colleen O'Dea

Course description

This Proprioception Membership has been created to help as many people as possible help their dogs to live an amazing quality of life.

So what is it exactly?  Proprioception is about body awareness, knowing where our bodies are in space and time.  Do you remember seeing the rolly polly puppy on Facebook that falls all over itself, this is often a dog that has poor body awareness! But proprioception encompasses so much more.

Proprioception can increase …

  • Coordination 
  • Balance
  • Flexibility
  • Muscle strength 
  • Stamina
  • Confidence
  • Concentration 
  • Resilience
  • Prevention of injury
  • Overall K9 Fitness
  • It can even slow some dogs down

So, why is all of this important and can my puppy, dog, senior dog, reactive or anxious dog do this?

In short, yes they can and why not add in our shy guys and any dog going through the behaviour modification process, because when we give these dogs something new to do or create new habits we build confidence and resilience.

Incorporated as part of our dogs weekly routine you will be proactively helping to keep your dog fit & healthy both mentally & physically, you’ll be improving their quality of life.

We all know how important it is for our own health & wellness, now you can give that gift to your dog and it’s way more fun that just "walking the dog”.

Our Proprioception Membership will include - 

  • Live demos
  • Recorded sessions
  • Resources to leading experts
  • Video Uploading - your opportunity to share your work

You will learn how to observe your dog and why this is the first vital step.

What kind of exercises will I learn?

  • How to warm-up your dog
  • Gymnastics - increases flexibility
  • Check ins - what are these and why is it so important
  • Balance work - confidence, balance, core strength
  • Cavaletti - helps build stamina & co-ordination
  • Planks - co-ordination & balance
  • Equipment usage and sourcing
  • Learn to ‘shape’ your outcomes and discover what are approximations - to your end goal.

How does it work?

All you need is a Facebook Page  and you can join the newest canine adventure in the comfort of your own home.  This page will be lightly moderated by myself to provide tips and feedback.

I know how amazing proprioception can be!  I’ve seen what it can do for my own dogs and now my clients are seeing the results and benefits for their own dogs and hopefully together we can build a wider awareness of the power of proprioception.

Join by clicking the price label at the top of the page.

Once you have paid your membership, you can go and join the Facebook page here.


Q. Am I locked in once I purchase the course?


Q. Do I need to buy any equipment?

A. Not to start with as most of the work is gymnastic type exercises.  Later on you can buy or make some equipment (Facebook Marketplace is great!)
