Weak Back

I'm looking for exercises to strengthen my dogs back. He's an Australian Shepherd and his back slopes downward a bit, I would like to help him build up some muscle in that area. I'm training him for agility and want to make sure I prevent him from geting an injury.

thanks for all the advice. I'll definetly try some of these things. We are currently working on sitting pretty, he's jus starting to be able to support himself for hald a second. It' still too cold and iced to go swimming here but I'll definetly do that more when it's warmer.

*agility collie mom* He seems to have pretty good awarness of his backlegs. He crawled under the bed and then crawled out, backwards, he's a very good reverse driver in many stuations. However I don't think he's always aware of his back feet so I will definetly try the ladder! My friend get clean run every month, I'll have to ask her if I can flip through them for the articles.
