BECAUSE IT CAN HELP YOUR DOG LIVE LONGER
Your dog is family. You take them on car rides, hiking, walks, to the park and you want them to live as long as possible. Besides that, dogs who exercise are more social, sleep better and, like I have mentioned in many other blogs, they have fewer behavior problems.
FitPAWS® Dog exercise equipment is a fun and simple way to exercise your pet indoors! Most dogs will tire in 5-10 minutes, 3-4 times a week.
Who would benefit from a FitPAWS Peanut?
The Peanut shaped stability ball is used for core conditioning for sporting and working dogs as well as rehabilitation and therapy. For example; Recently I had a customer reach out to me because her Labrador Retriever had a spinal stroke and her vet recommended the FitPAWS Peanut to help her dog recover with balance and natural stance exercises.
Working dogs include Therapy, Service, Police and Military dogs; with important jobs to do. Sporting dogs, there are 4 types (according to the AKC) and they are spaniels, pointers, retrievers and setters. They are known for their superior instincts in the woods and water, many of these dog breeds enjoy hunting and other field activities.
I did a blog on working dogs and training that I will link here for more information.
These dogs will benefit from training as a puppy to adult dog, retirement, and beyond. Incorporate FitPAWS equipment early in puppy training to increased performance and injury prevention. Sporting and Working dogs have many of the same risks associated with highly competitive canine athletes and can reduce their risks of injuries by having a consistent training program.
Senior Dogs benefit too!
Senior Dogs tend to lose muscle mass in their hind ends. Keep your senior dog in shape with low impact workouts. You can do dog exercises to increase muscle in the hind end with “dog squats” and repetitions of sit-to-stand on top of a FitPAWS Peanut as an assisted-stand prop while you help with the squat motion.
- Build Core Strength
- Promote Good Form
- Boost Confidence
- Improve Joint Health
