Ball Dynamics has been making stability and exercise balls, as well as other exercise tools for humans for 20 years. Now the company has added a similar line of products for canines ... canine athletes and canines in rehabilitation. Just like those for humans, the balls increase stability, core strength, range of motion, flexibility, neuromuscular facilitation, sensory and perceptual stimulation, joint alignment and balance control.
Agility dogs are the prime target for the FitPAWS product line, which consists of Peanuts, Eggs, Donuts, Balance Discs, Balance Pads, and the new Paw Pods, among other products.
Here is German Shepherd Wyatt, who recently lost a leg, being coached to use the FitPAWS Peanut to help him learn to balance his gait with three legs.
The FitPAWS Safety Harness helps the handler or therapist keeps the dog's activity in check while using the balancing equipment.
The Paw Pods are an advanced balance training product. Apparently, balancing on these spiky pods is a bit easier for your dog if you turn them upside down, so he's balancing on the flat side of the pods.
