We all know that we need a canine fitness program to get and keep our dogs fit for breeding but what exactly does that mean? Find out in Fit to Be Tied, the first and only breeding-stock conditioning program designed to get and keep your stud dogs and brood bitches fit for successful breeding, in short, simple sessions a few times a week.

As with many other species, fitness in dogs contributes to:

  • better fertility
  • faster whelpings
  • more live, healthy puppies
  • better mothering and pup care
  • more milk
  • faster recovery after pregnancy

FTBT is designed, presented and monitored by a canine sports medicine specialist! Dr Chris Zink, DVM PhD has teamed up with three-time AKC Sport Breeder of the Year, Gayle Watkins PhD, to bring cutting-edge science and their decades of experience to dog breeders in an easy-to-do physical conditioning program for breeding dogs.

You’ll get lots of personal guidance in FTBT, too. You can join Chris and Gayle for live Q&A calls each month or you can get advice from them on the private Facebook page. You also get access to our growing library of short classes and live webinars, covering an array of topics from what to feed your dog to using rehab to resolve an injury. For your annual fee, you can also enroll all of your dogs, from puppies to seniors, in the program.

Join us in Fit to Be Tied and improve your breeding success!
