FitPAWS TRAX Donut
The FitPAWS TRAX Donut features the special TRAX surface which provides superior grip and stability as well as neurosensory stimulation. In addition, it's burst-resistant to 300 lbs. and is designed to deflate slowly if punctured. The donut's flattened, wide base offers more stability than other fitness inflatables. This fitness prop is 22" diameter x 13" high (55 cm x 33).
With your assistance, your dog can learn to stand, sit, lie down, side step, and perform other beneficial exercises with the Donut. Subtle movement of the FitPAWS Donut under your dog’s weight causes a shift in your dog’s center of gravity. Your dog will naturally try to maintain balance, causing the muscles to engage and strengthen. It’s that simple.
FitPAWS Donut Holder
The FitPAWS Donut Holder is an inflatable ring that helps stabilize the FitPAWS Donut. This is a good training tool if your dog is new to dynamic movement exercises and you want to build his confidence, or if you are doing very advanced work and using the Donut in combination with other fitness props. Try using the FitPAWS Donut Holder as a hand-held jump-through ring for trick training or for agility tire jump training. It can also be used a target for your dog's rear legs when you're teaching side stepping with the dog's front legs elevated.
FitPAWS Anti-Skid Paw Pods
FitPAWS Paw Pods are balance pods made especially for dogs. Balance pods are a useful tool for balance training, motor skill development, and proprioception. They can also be used in physical therapy exercises to improve weight-bearing capability in individual limbs. Teach your dog to put all four feet on pods, just his two rear feet, just his front feet, or just a single paw. Teach your dog to stand with his front feet on balance pods and his rear feet on a the K9FITbone.
The set includes four colorful Paw Pods (assorted colors). The Paw Pods are made from a firm yet flexible PVC material with an air-filled chamber. The Paw Pods are shipped inflated, and you can adjust the balance challenge by changing the amount of air inside each pod with a needle pump (not included). You can also change the difficulty level by using the Paw Pods with the flat side down (less challenging) or the dome side down (more challenging.) The FitPAWS Paw Pods feature sensory bumps on top for neural stimulation and grip capability. The bottoms are made from an anti-skid material. The pods are 5" wide at the base and 2.5" high.
K9FITbone Balance Bones
The K9FITbone is not just a bone-shaped balance prop designed to amuse the human member of the partnership—its unique shape is specifically designed to allow it to be used with dogs, whereas balance discs were designed for two-legged creatures to stand on. K9FITbones can be used for core training and literally dozens and dozens of other exercises. The professional-grade, heavy-duty PVC material is formulated for use with dogs, providing superior gripping and resisting damage caused by dog nails. The K9 FITbone also features sensory bumps to provide neural stimulation. There are pointier and more closely spaced sensory bumps on one side of the bone and flatter more loosely spaced ones on the other. The K9FITbone is 23" long by 10" wide. Have the dog stand with his front feet on one bone and his back feet on the other, and you can do any exercises that can be done on a peanut or egg ball.
Packaging: These balance props are shipped uninflated. An air pump is included as well as a training DVD for the donut and a set of exercise cards for the K9FITbones.
