Pranita Balar, 34 Dog fitness coach
AVAILABLE FOR: Cavaletti
canine fitness exercises
CHARGES: Start at Rs 1,000
Mumbai-based Pranita Balar is a Cavaletti canine trainer from Switzerland. She helps pet-parents from all over the city with Cavaletti fitness exercises that sharpen a dog*s proprioception, which is their ability to sense movement, action, and location within a given space. "Cavaletti improves stride length, limb awareness, strength, balance, flexibility, as well as builds confidence and focus. Its versatility makes it a great option for puppies as well as seniors," says Balar, adding that inaccurately coached agility can injure excitable breeds such as Boxers and Labradors.
RECOMMENDED BY: Arti Agrawal, graphic designer and mom to Coconut, the beagle, says, "Pranita personalises fitness drills keeping Coconut*s personality and abilities in mind. We didn*t need to invest in fancy equipment. They challenge Coconut physically and mentally. She thoroughly enjoys them, and so do we."
