|Nikki B. and Jess Pass the Test|
If you begin practicing yoga every day for 15 minutes, however, and then gradually add more time to your daily practice, your dog will recognize this as a new routine and will be more apt to join in, because with routine and consistency comes comfort and trust. Start your practice by changing the entire ambience of the room; dim the lights, soften the music, open the windows (weather permitting), maybe even light some candles—out of reach of your dogs. Anything that you consistently do to begin your practice will help your dog understand that this is time for yoga; it is time to be on the mat and bond with you. This sets the stage for your new routine.
We Finally Did It!
Notes from Carrie:
Don't forget to offer a treat when your dog joins in, to cement the memory with a positive reinforcer.
