IS THE Flexipaws Cloud A GOOD BEGINNER BALANCE TOOL?
The FlexiPAWS Cloud can be used for beginners since it has a flat bottom, which increases to stability of the tool. The Cloud is a balance tool that is shaped for pets to stand on with either two or four paws at a time. The curved top makes it similar to the Peanut but the flat bottom makes it more stable than the Peanuts.
WHY DO I NEED TO TRIM MY DOGS NAILS BEFORE USING THE Flexiness Cloud?
Your dog's nails must be trimmed before using the Flexiness Cloud in order to reduce the chance of puncturing the equipment. If your dog's nails are too long or are sharp, then the nail may puncture the product when they jump onto or off of the equipment. This poses a risk to both you and your dog as the Cloud may deflate quickly and could scare and/or injure your dog. We recommend that you always trim your dog's nails before using the Cloud and assist your dog when mounting or dismounting the balance equipment.
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 FLexipaws cloud BE USED FOR?
The FlexiPAWS Cloud is great for balance training and muscle building. The stability of the Cloud can be changed depending on the amount of air you put in it. Less air, leaving the bottom of the Cloud slightly round, creates a more stable surface and a lower Intensity Level. More air, creating a more round bottom, creates a more unstable surface and a higher Intensity Level. Your pet can use two or four paws on the Cloud at a time to change the Intensity Level and engage different muscles during the session.
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.
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, if the product won't inflate, or if the product deflates during use.
