Gentle support with medicinal mushrooms for older dogs
Vital mushrooms have been used for thousands of years to gently support the health of humans and animals. Here you will learn how you can use medicinal mushrooms to support your older dog ‘s health in a variety of ways. I will introduce you to selected medicinal mushrooms that delay the ageing process, provide energy and strength, support the joints and relieve pain, but also strengthen the heart and immune system and promote blood circulation, for example.

My name is
Glad to have you here!
I am a dog physiotherapist and book author. Welcome to Doggy Fitness. Dog physiotherapy has been my passion for many years now and I have been privileged to help many dogs gain more pain-free mobility. My guiding principle is “movement is life”. I am joined by Tessa, who you will also see in my online courses. We have been going through life together for many years now. For me, she is the best proof of how much our dogs benefit when we humans take care of their health. Thanks to dog fitness training, gentle massages and supportive measures from nature such as medicinal plants, she is still really fit even at 13 years old. I show you in my courses how you can achieve this with your dog. And it doesn’t matter if you have a healthy dog that you want to support preventively, or a dog with a musculoskeletal condition, or a senior dog. I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes.
Does that sound familiar?

Frequently asked questions

No, absolutely not! The course does not replace a visit to the veterinarian or veterinary treatment. I ask you to refrain from using the online course as a substitute for treatment by your veterinarian. It serves as a support to maintain health and recovery!
No, you do not need it. The course platform is intuitive and clear. You don’t need any special programs or anything and you can even watch the videos on your cell phone or tablet. You can also conveniently save the training plans in PDF format on the medium of your choice – or print them out in the classic way and hang them on the refrigerator.
There is no need to purchase special equipment for when you attend one of my dog fitness classes. I present you alternatives for each exercise, with, for example, utensils from the household or nature,
Immediately after purchase you will receive an email with your access data, with which you can log in online. Your first week of classes with training plan, video tutorials and all instructions as PDF will be unlocked for you immediately. The other content will be unlocked week by week. This gives you enough time for implementation. You can watch the course videos online. You can download the training plans and additional exercise instructions as PDF.
You should set aside some time each day to train with your dog. Basically, the training is designed so that you can integrate it into your day as you wish. You can also conveniently and flexibly spread the exercises throughout the day. It is important that you reserve the time for training exclusively for your dog, without distracting factors. In total, you should not have to invest more than a maximum of 15 minutes per day. However, I recommend that you train slowly and with concentration rather than scurrying through the exercises quickly.
No, all courses – except the ExpertFIT course – are aimed at dog people and no prior medical knowledge is necessary.
