Saving Lives and Sanity – Pet Business Magazine

Excerpt: “Manufacturers are also devising ways to prevent mobility issues—for example, through products designed to encourage activity. Consider Ball Dynamics International, LLC. The Longmont, Colo.-based company distributes exercise balls for the human professional fitness and rehab market. In 2010, it launched the FitPAWS® brand, which is designed for the canine market. According to Gloria Miller, marketing manager for the company, the humanization of the family pet has led to greater concerns about their health and fitness—just like it has for people.

“Preventative exercise applies to pets too,” says Miller. “And it’s economically easier on the pocketbook than the cost of time and rehabilitation for injuries.”

Excerpt: “Core strength is paramount and a key component to every dog’s health – whether it’s a competitive dog, a working or your couch warmer! Every dog, just like every person should have good core strength. In a person, it is analogous to a strong back and abdominal area.

Core muscles also include other postural areas of the body.”

Product Review: Fitpaws Exercise Peanut for Dog or Exercise Ball for Dogs

Excerpt: “When people hear “your dog needs exercise,” they imagine themselves having to go jogging with their dog or needing to pack up their car with gear to go hiking. The fact is there’s a great product on the market that lets you exercise your dog while you sit on the sofa and watch TV!”



FitPAWS for Fit Dogs

Excerpt: “As a rehabilitation veterinarian I use a lot of specialized tools to help a pet return to function or become more conditioned. One of the easiest and most complex pieces of equipment that I just love is the FitPAWS equipment…

“The equipment is built extra tough to deal with our exuberant pets and their nails but is also designed to give our pets a better gripping surface.

“FitPAWS has a variety of shapes and sizes to fit all types of pets. The exercise balls look fun and easy but don’t let the bright colors fool you – they are difficult and can wear your pet out.”
