|Baby it is a training technique that teaches awareness of feet, or hind end awareness since most dogs are not paying any attention to where they are putting their feet. I'm not sure Which exercise that Embyr is referring to but there are two that I do with my dogs.
First - with the ladder laying on the ground train the dog to walk through the ladder stepping in between the rungs. Dogs that have hip problems will generally show problems with this exercise.
Second - with the ladder on blocks but parallel to the ground train the dogs to walk On the runs placing their feet on the rungs as they go across. This takes real skill on the dogs part and they Really have to think about where they are putting their feet.
Hope that Helps
