Additional Doga Posts:
To further help you locate the latest Doga poses, I've added this Doga listing to the drop down menu under the title "Your Dog", as well as placing the live links and the "coming" poses in the sidebar. I hope this helps. If you have questions, feel free to ask them on Facebook or Twitter. I'd love to help!

Meanwhile, Tanner, Oliver and I are continuing to work at our Doga poses as well. If I can do this, I know that you can! We're all enjoying them and the snuggles afterward are so delightful :)


If you're new to Doga or Yoga, please be sure to do these three things: (1) Get your doctor's permission to start a yoga workout, (2) Check with your vet to make sure your dog is able to participate in simple Doga exercises safely, and (3) visit our introductory post where I've outlined a few tips that will help your experience go more smoothly and enjoyable. Keep in mind that you can always stop if a pose is uncomfortable, returning to a relaxing pose.

I stretch daily but I just learned tfrom experienced yogis hat yoga can be bad for your body and has caused injuries, so please be careful doing these poses.

Thanks for the safety reminder, @Helga. We'll be simply sharing basic stretches and poses here. I have recommended to all that they should get a physician's okay for participation, both for themselves and their dog. Further, dogs can participate simply by joining you nearby to bond and watch. I love having my dogs join me to get an occasional belly rub or head scratch. :)
