Growing Up With FitPAWS®

A Puppy’s Growth Process

Part of a puppy’s growth process includes the establishment of balance, proprioception, and core strength.

We recommend beginning puppies out on the FitPAWS® equipment as early as possible – even six weeks if possible.

The best FitPAWS products for a dog new to balance is the K9FITbones (original or Giant), Balance PadBalance Discs and Ramp.

The large Wobble Board is also a great tool to begin exploration of moving objects and establishing balance and core skills.

Stepping on Donuts and a variety of Peanuts is a fun way to begin core strength and get a jump start on the muscles needed for balance and proprioception.
