FitPAWS® Canine Conditioning Equipment
Just like our sister brand FitBALL® is trusted by thousands of fitness and rehabilitation professionals for high-quality standards, FitPAWS® Canine Conditioning Equipment can be used by our four-legged friends for core strengthening, increased range of motion and flexibility, neuromuscular facilitation, sensory and perceptual stimulation, joint alignment, and balance control. Whether your dog is involved in agility, dock jumping, other dog sports, or is a working dog or a couch potato with healthier aspirations, core strength is a fundamental element used by your dog to control its body when jumping, turning, running and to help prevent injuries.

Get the edge over the competition with NEW FitPAWS Canine Conditioning Equipment! Core conditioning is an essential part of any athletes training program, including the performance dog. If your dog participates in agility competitions, you'll want to make sure your dog is in prime physical condition. Once on top of the FitPAWS conditioning equipment, your dog's body will automatically react to the shifting movement, causing your dog to use different muscle groups simultaneously in order to remain upright. Adding this strengthening activity to your dog's cross-training activities 3-4 times a week, has many benefits, including:


    * Improved reaction and control
    * Increased trunk and core strength
    * Stabilization of weak areas
    * Improved balance and proprioception (awareness of the body's position in space)
    * Increased range of motion in joints & elongation of the muscles
    * Improved sensory & body awareness

canine exercise balls
FitPAWS®  Dog Peanut Ball: A peanut-shaped stability ball designed for canine core conditioning. The professional-grade heavy-duty PVC material is formulated for use with dogs, provides superior gripping and resists damage caused by dog nails.It is used for core conditioning of sporting and working dogs as well as for animal rehabilitation and therapy. The unique shape of the peanut limits its movement to front/back or side/side, important for dogs new to this type of training. You can also adjust the balance challenge by under-inflating so the ball is not as firm. Made with Anti-burst Technology of professional-grade heavy-duty  PVC material.  The FitPaws Peanut ball has small grooves to provide extra traction. Easily inflates with hand-held air pump, sold separately.  Comfortable & easy to use. Warranty: manufacturer's discretion.  We recommend your dog wear a safety harness you can hold onto, while your dog is exercising on the ball. Read all safety, care and use instructions before using your FitPAWS Canine Conditioning Equipment.  Includes a DVD & Pump.

FitPAWS® GUIDELINES

Choosing the correct size ball for your dog depends on what type of exercises your dog will be doing on the ball.

For weight bearing activities (when a dog is standing partially on the ground and partially on the ball,) choose a ball that is slightly under your dog's withers (or highest part of the shoulders where the neck meets the back.) If you need a ball smaller than the 40cm, purchase the 40cm and decrease the amount of air you pump in so that the ball is shorter.

For core strengthening activities (when a dog is sitting, standing or lying on the ball,) choose a ball that is at least 4" taller than your dog's withers (or highest part of the shoulders where the neck meets the back.) If you need a ball smaller than the 40cm, purchase the 40cm and decrease the amount of air you pump in so that the ball is shorter.

The FitPAWS Peanut is a good choice for beginners and for weight-bearing exercises as the unique shape of the peanut provides an easier balance challenge and rolls in one direction or plane at a time. The FitPAWS Egg is a better choice for advanced core strengthening exercises as it more unstable than the peanut and rolls in multiple directions or planes.
Dog exercise balls / canine conditioning equipment / canine exercise balls / dog training equipment
Choosing the correct size and shape of ball for your dog depends on what type of exercises your dog will be doing on the ball. The size printed on the ball is the maximum inflation height. You can decide whether or not you want to inflate the ball to its maximum height or inflate to a lesser height. Never go over the maximum height printed on the ball.

If you plan to use your ball mainly for core conditioning, measure the length of your dog when it is standing from the front legs to the back legs. Your dog should be able to stand in a natural stance on the top of the ball without being hunched over.

You can always use a large ball for a small dog but not a small ball for a large dog. If you have more than one dog, choose a size that fits your largest dog. You may find it more comfortable for your own back to work with your dog on a larger/taller ball. Using a larger ball for a small dog also has the added benefit of providing more surface area to work on. The FitPAWS Peanut is naturally longer than the FitPAWS Egg and provides more of an elongated surface training area.

Canine Safety Harnesses
FitPaws Dog Safety Harness:
The FitPAWS Safety Harness is a professional-quality canine harness for use with the FitPAWS Peanut and FitPAWS Egg, as well as for other canine rehab use. It is the perfect solution if you are nervous about your dog using the ball or for less-stable canines in rehab. It is also a great tool for helping guide your dog on or off of the Peanut or Egg. The molded rubberized ergonomic handle is lightweight but provides a firm grip so you can comfortably manage your dog’s movement, help guide it atop the ball or help guide it down once you’ve finished training.
The main body is constructed from a top and bottom layer of extremely high-denier, poly-coated fabric which is fully padded inside and triple-stitched at each and every stress point. This offers unrivaled strength along with water resistance. The FitPAWS Safety Harness includes 3 D-Rings conveniently located on the top and both sides. These D-rings can be used for tying leads if the dog is rehabbing on a treadmill.
Our FitPAWS Safety Harness features two adjustable straps of high-strength nylon webbing (underneath the girth and across the chest) for a customized fit. The girth strap also features a safety release. Order correct size by measuring your dog’s girth. Use a soft fabric measuring tape and measure your dog around the chest just behind the front legs. Make sure your dog is standing up while you are doing this. You can also circle your dog’s chest with a leash and then measure the leash where you mark it.
Comes in 5 sizes: Available in  X-SMALL Yellow  (18"-24" girth), SMALL Red  (26”-30” girth), MEDIUM Blue(30”-34” girth), LARGE Yellow (34”-40” girth)  and  X-LARGE Red (40”-42” girth)

Dual Action Needle Ball Pump

Dual Action Needle Ball Pump

The Get on the Ball Two DVD provides four easy-to-follow programs: puppy, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Besides providing detailed demonstrations of each program with experienced dogs, the DVD also includes an actual seminar held for ball work novices.
Whether you’re asking your dog to jump off the couch to go for a walk, compete in an agility event, lure course, herd livestock, or go for a hike, your dog needs the strength to perform the activity with as little risk of injury as possible. Many dogs are lacking strength in their core muscle group: the lower back and abdominals. In performance dogs, we see many lower back problems, mid-back problems, and iliopsoas strains. In nonperformance dogs, the first place we see weakness as the dog ages, is in the hind end and lower back. Working your dog on a stability ball, Peanut or Egg ball is an excellent and safe way to develop these muscles, which will aid in the reduction and prevention of problems.  Developed and demonstrated by Debbie Gross Saunders, a licensed physical therapist and a certified canine rehabilitation practitioner with over 15 years experience in the field. 3 hours, 3 disc set.  This DVD shows how to use core conditioning equipment like the FitPAWS Peanut and FitPAWS Egg.   $39.95
