Proprioception

Proprioception:  "The unconscious perception of movement and spatial orientation arising from stimuli within the body itself."   (thefreedictionary.com)

Here I am familiarizing myself with balance discs.  Working with balance discs will help improve my proprioception.  Better proprioception = better coordination = better balance = more efficient athlete.  Performing low-impact exercises on discs is puppy-safe and is good preparation for future agility training (when I am much older).


Jiggly wiggly - balancing with all 4 paws

I did it!  (Do 3 paws still count?)
