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 Pad, Balance 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.
