Balance Pad - FitPaws


pet experience level

Details

The Balance Pad, unlike other FitPAWS Balance Tools, is made from a durable closed-cell foam meaning no inflation is necessary to use the pad. This Balance Pad is a great option for improving motor skills, balance, and stabilizing joints. Beginners that are new to balance exercises benefit from this Balance Pad since the foam is more stable than inflatable balance products and boosts their confidence in their balancing skills. 

FitPAWS products have been designed specifically for dogs and are trusted by thousands of fitness and rehabilitation professionals, clinics, training facilities, and pet parents. FitPAWS strives to  help strengthen muscles, increase range of motion and flexibility, engage neuromuscular facilitation, provide sensory and perceptual stimulation, joint alignment and balance control in all types of pets. Whether your pet is involved in sporting activities or just a house-pet, core strength is necessary for your dog to control its body during movements like running, jumping, and turning. Fitness Training is also a great way to help prevent injuries!

Rehab Protocol

EXERCISE BASICS

  • Ensure your dog is healthy to begin exercise. Consult your canine health professional before beginning this or any exercise program. 

  • Always check for proper body alignment while performing exercises. Watch to ensure back and neck are neutral. Front limbs and hind limbs should support weight safely. Avoid over extension of limbs, neck, and back. 

  • Perform an equal number of exercise repetitions on both sides of the body. 
  • Start slow and build up. 3-5 repetitions is adequate for dogs beginning an exercise program. 
  • Never over-exercise or over-tire your dog. Always watch for and listen to signs of tiredness or exhaustion.
  • We recommend your dog use a safety harness, while exercising on the equipment.

The Balance Pad can be used as a stand-alone balance tool or can be used in conjunction with other FitPAWS rehab equipment. 

To use the Balance Pad, simply have your pet step onto the pad and encourage them to shift their weight from front to back or side to side. To increase the Intensity Level, you may stack Balance Pads or place multiple pads side by side.

FAQs

WHY FITPAWS FITNESS?

FitPAWS Canine Conditioning Equipment is the #1 brand of fitness and rehab equipment for dogs! The combination of physical and mental exercises is absolutely critical to a well-balanced dog. FitPAWS Products are a great way to exercise your dog mentally and physically at the same time. FitPAWS Products  combine dog-specific equipment that provides fun dog fitness that you can do at home, outside, in a rehab facility, or anywhere that you need it!

IS THE balance pad A GOOD BEGINNER TOOL?

Yes. The Balance Pad is a great option for pets who are beginners with rehab equipment. The pad is low enough for pets with limited mobility to have easy access. It is also sturdy enough to not move as much as inflatable balance equipment, such as the TRAX Donut or Balance Discs, meaning that your pet won't have to work as hard to balance but is still able to practice balance exercises! 

ARE FITPAWS REHAB TOOLS GOOD FOR PUPPIES?

FitPAWS products are perfect for helping get rid of a puppy's excess energy, while giving them a beneficial physical and mental ‘job’ by engaging them in new games, tricks, and behaviors. Many of the FitPAWS tools are low-impact and you can start training your puppy with them as early as 8 weeks, starting with 3–5 minute training sessions. Improving your puppy’s core strength, confidence, and body awareness puts them on track to living a longer, happier, and healthier life. A more active lifestyle strengthens your puppy to help prevent future injuries and benefits their overall well-being.

WHAT CAN THE Balance pad BE USED FOR?

The Balance Pad is a great tool for introducing low Intensity Level balance exercises to pets with low confidence and low mobility. The pad can be used with two to four paws, your pet may need two Balance Pads in order to fit all four paws. Exercising with different paws on the pad at a time changes the Intensity Level and changes which muscles are being engaged during the session. 

HOW LONG WILL THIS PRODUCT LAST?

With proper care, this product should last 1-2 years. However, you should always check the equipment before and after each use to ensure there are no signs of excessive wear. Always replace the equipment if there are any signs of wear.
