WHAT DO THE SENSORY NUBS DO AND WILL THEY HURT MY DOG?
The sensory nubs should not hurt your dog, though some dogs may not like the feeling of the nubs since it is a new sensation. They are made of the same flexible material as the rest of the product and will slightly compress when your dog stands on them. The sensory nubs aid in sensory input for your dog, meaning they help your dog feel what is under them more than they would with a smooth surface. They also help with paw grip when using balance products.

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.
