Professional athletes undergo sports retraining to move from everyday function to the maximal function required by the sport. Working dogs need the same kind of job-specific exercises as well. They need to train to regain their special abilities so that they can be successful in their work while also preventing reinjury or new injuries. This lecture provides specific information on how to develop a safe, targeted retraining program for the working dog.
