How To Inflate Your FitPAWS® Peanut

ll have more of these blog posts in the future, so stay tuned!

Inside the package you’ll find your FitPAWS® Peanut, and taped to it will be two small plugs. This is what holds the air in the Peanut.

You also get your safety, care and use instructions. Please read them thoroughly. And, also make sure to watch the How-To-Use DVD that comes with it.

You’ll get a FitPAWS® Pump, as well. The pump includes two attachments. We’ll use the cone-shaped attachment to inflate the FitPAWS® Peanut. The needle attachment is used to inflate the FitPAWS® Balance Disc and the FitPAWS® Paw Pods. Please screw the cone-shaped attachment onto the end of your FitPAWS® Pump.

Now it’s time to get measuring tape out and we’ll start inflating the Peanut according to size. All of the FitPAWS Peanuts have the maximum inflation in centimeters and inches printed on the side of the ball. The Peanut will perform best at 95% inflation. You do not have to inflate the FitPAWS Peanut to max inflation, and using it under-inflated will actually be more challenging for your dog.

Watch me measure the FitPAWS Peanut at the highest bulb. I’m making sure not to over-inflate the Peanut, as this compromises its structural integrity and may weaken or damage the material. When you’re ready to inflate the Peanut, go ahead and take your pump, place it inside the hole and begin pumping.

We recommend inflating your FitPAWS Peanut in two stages. On day one, inflate your FitPAWS Peanut to 80% percent of max inflation. On day two, you can start inflating your FitPAWS Peanut to size. You do not have to use a FitPAWS Peanut at full inflation. The material is really thick, and it gets more difficult to add air as you reach its max inflation. Please note, as a quality assurance test, all peanuts have been inflated to size at the factory, then deflated and packaged. As you put air in it, the material does expand…so, keep pumping until your FitPAWS Peanut gets to the right size.

Thanks so much for purchasing the FitPAWS® Peanut, and thanks for watching!

Again, please follow the safety, care and use instructions that are included with your FitPAWS® Peanut. Also make sure to watch the How-To-Use DVD that is included with your Peanut.
