pet experience level

Details

The FitPAWS Targets are a great training tool for pets. They are often used for “stay” “send-away” and “go-to” commands, as well as to introduce new, unfamiliar equipment. These targets are the most simple way to make something new seem less intimidating to a dog. In order to introduce your pet to the FitPAWS Targets, you can use simple commands that they already know, plus treats always help!

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.

Paw Placement Awareness

Use the FitPAWS Targets to increase your dog's paw placement awareness by placing the Targets on the ground in front or your dog and encourage them to step onto the Targets. Each paw should be on its own Target. To increase the Intensity Level, change the placement of the Targets or reduce the number of Targets.

Introduce new Equipment

The FitPAWS Targets are a great tool to introduce pets to new equipment. To do this, have your pet step or stand on the targets and reward them. Once they understand to stand on the targets when signaled, place the targets on the new equipment piece and signal them to stand on the targets.

Are FitPAWS rehab tools good for puppies?

Once they associate the targets with where to place their paws, you can use the targets to introduce new equipment to your pets by placing the targets on the new equipment.
