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.”
