Why does my puppy need a healthy core?

One statistic for you:  35% of ALL dogs from the age of 12 months are diagnosed with arthritis!

I want to help you avoid or significantly delay the onset of orthopaedic conditions your puppy’s breed may be predisposed to.

Puppy Pilates encourages puppies to learn to move with balanced and correct movement which in turn helps those developing joints.    Learning proper movement habits will result in fewer injuries therefore vet bills.

It is a phenomenal way to bond with your dog, to improve their focus on you, and to complement any future training you enjoy.

PLUS it’s easy, gentle & great fun!

Student Testimonials


Can't i just buy an out of the box course?

Of course you can do this

1.  For safety reasons all dogs should have a watchful, expert eye on them at all times during conditioning classes.  This ensures the muscles are not overworking and that the movement being developed is correct for that puppy.

Who better than an award winning Canine  Rehabilitation Specialist with consistent and measurable results.

2. No two dogs are the same.  There can be variations in breed, age, lifestyle, and habits.  Your core instructor should be aware of all the nuances that make your puppy unique by ensuring that exercise plans are designed to make them body ready for the life you’ve planned for them.

After the 8 Explorer course can I upgrade?

Yes, of course you can do this

We can chat nearer the time about the what next, but if there is space available and you’d like to upgrade to build on your foundations you I would love that. 


is this class just for sport/working dogs?

No, this class is an inclusive class that’s suitable for dogs of all ages from working/sport dogs to pet dogs.

I adapt exercise plans to individually suit your dog’s breed, lifestyle, and ability.

I coach dogs from 18 months to 14 years, from those with no issues to those diagnosed with arthritis and hip dysplasia.  In every case, when the plan has been followed as set, I’ve witnessed the most incredible changes.

If you are unsure as to whether or not your dog can participate please contact me to discuss your options.

what do i bring to class?

You will need plenty of whatever you use to reward your dog for a good job done!  (Treats or toys or praise)

Bring a water bowl and some water and a pen.

If you normally use a harness please bring a collar and lead for your puppy to work on.

Bring a mat for your puppy to settle on while we set up and during rest periods.

Bring whatever else makes you and your dog comfortable.


will my Puppy be working on lead?

All puppies work on a collar and lead rather than in harness.

Decisions to move to offlead are based on size and excitement level of the puppy.

Puppies remain on lead in class at least for the first 4 weeks until we establish emotional balance in the room.  I find that after this time puppies are usually only interested in their owners because the energy in the room is calm and focussed.

The most important thing is to keep all puppies safe within the training environment.


Do you need to see my puppy's vaccination certificate?

 Yes please.

Safety first is my motto.  I need your class to be a safe space for both yours and others puppies.  

If you choose to titre your puppy I’ll need to see that too.

will i have any homework?


You will do your exercises twice a week.

We keep the sessions short with class breaks – you’ll do the same at home.

My goal is for you to “see” the potential to perform puppys exercises everywhere you go on walks – I would love for your dog to do exercises over branches around trees, you’ll get creative …

Remember our key focus is safe and fun training.


Do I need expensive equipment?

Many people opt to buy a set of 10 cones and poles.

However, the beauty of this programme is that you can improvise with whatever you may have laying around at home or in the garden.
