Here's how you can get results in the canine gym with 10-minute sessions 3 times a week! 

Functional Fitness for the Active Dog is a unique canine fitness membership site that will fast track your fitness, health and performance goals with your dog, using a systematic approach to canine fitness and injury prevention.


Does this sound familiar?

• You feel OVERWHELMED by conflicting information online.

• You haven't moved the needle in your canine conditioning journey - you're stuck doing the same thing.

• You're motivated but this quickly disappears and your journey is short lived.

• You have a multi-dog household and are not sure where to start.

• You spend so much time figuring out where to start that you just...don't!

• Other people in your life just "don't get" the importance of canine conditioning. You feel alone and isolated. 

• Your dog LOVES canine conditioning... so much that his feet just won't stay still no matter what you try!

• You DESIRE perfect form for each exercise but don't know how to achieve it.

• Your busy schedule makes it hard finding time to commit to training. You wish you could spend less time in the canine gym and still see BIG results.

In order to get FASTER and more EFFECTIVE results in the canine gym, we need to take a layered approach to canine fitness using FUNCTIONAL exercises. 


By building a strong foundation and slowly adding in challenges, you will ACCELERATE your progress!! 


Why do we take this approach??

  • To build and protect your dog's confidence.
  • To accelerate your dog's learning.
  • To build more clarity around the behaviours and exercises we are training! 
  • To limit and reduce your frustrations with repeated failure. 
  • To improve your consistency in the canine gym.
  • To improve the relationship with your dog. 
  • To maximize your efficiency in the canine gym. 
  • To get faster results!

By incorporating positive reinforcement training with a layered approach to learning, you and your dog will be on your way to success in the canine gym!

Meet Keith, the 1-Year-Old Rough Collie


Keith’s owner, Sue, had BIG plans for him in the conformation ring, but he struggled with foot positioning and body awareness. Sue turned to canine conditioning to help him achieve these skills.
After searching the Internet, Sue quickly became paralyzed by the overwhelming amount of information. She needed an actual PLAN with clear step-by-step instructions to accommodate her 12-hour work schedule.
Introduce Functional Fitness!
In only 10 minutes, three times per week, Sue has been using the layered approach to teach Keith proper form. As a bonus, she started to realize just how FUN the canine gym can be, and her confidence in her skills as a trainer has also increased!

Nancy Hoffman

I love Carolyn and her approach to fitness. I find her material interesting and easy to follow. Plus, she does a great job of keeping you motivated to learn more and do the exercises with your dog.

Elisabeth Fritz

The exercises are easy to do (even on a budget) and the community is one of the most supportive groups to be in. The instructors are very inclusive and are always willing to help figure out ways for you and your dog to continue to progress. 

Gerda Veltkamp

Video feedback was amazing... The layout was easy to follow and refer back to. Explanation and video of each exercise was priceless. The exercises were really good. Common training issues encountered when training.

Emily Walsh

[The course is] very detailed on how to complete each exercise, the coaches are extremely helpful and there is no pressure to move past what your dog can do. If you are more experienced, there are lots of modifications and exercises to work your dog at their current level of fitness! 

Emma Morton

A well thought out and content-rich program that takes you from the foundations to more advanced skills and beyond. Not just focused on your dog, it gives you the tools to grow on the journey. 

Christine Ryder

My experience with Functional Fitness was uplifting and encouraging. It is so important for canine athletes to be involved in a fitness program for longevity in their lives and their sports.

Kathleen King

This program encouraged me to be more aware of my training skills, helped me improve my handler mechanics, and provided a fun way for my dog and me to learn together. Carolyn provides a tremendous wealth of knowledge and expertise, and I am a much better handler and training partner since working through the program.

Erin Rudd

It was so amazing and my dogs and I have learned so much!! Wyatt is looking so much stronger and Kona is starting to have confidence on the equipment which is a huge deal for her. I feel much more confident in my training abilities as well. Thank you for providing such a great resource!

Meet your Coach!

Hi! I’m Carolyn McIntyre, an animal rehabilitation trained and registered physiotherapist and the owner/operator of McIntyre Canine Rehabilitation located in Erin, Ontario, Canada. I hold a Master of Science in Physiotherapy and a Diploma in Canine Rehabilitation through the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

I primarily work with canine athletes in person at my clinic and with my extensive international online community. In addition to helping canine athletes fast-track their fitness and performance, I also work to manage both current and chronic injuries. I have a comprehensive online Return to Sport Program.

I offer a variety of online canine fitness courses geared towards active dogs and canine athletes, utilizing a unique layered approach to my training methods to yield faster results in less time. I  also offer 1:1 high-level personalized coaching for a more tailored and custom approach to canine fitness and physio needs. I am the author of “Warm Up and Cool Down of the Canine Athlete: An Evidence-Based Approach to Improving Performance and Preventing Injury.” I was the canine physio practitioner for Team Canada in 2019 and 2020 at the IFCS World Agility Championships.

I am an accomplished agility competitor with five dogs – Quinn (Aussie) and four shelties - Fifty, Shades, Keeper, and Siren. I am a member of Team Canada with both Shades (WAO  - World Agility Open) and Keeper (FCI - AWC - Agility World Championships).
