Some folks call it a wobble board, others refer to it as a “buja board” for dogs. Whatever you call it, this wobbly surface is a great tool to build core strength in dogs, especially the three-legged variety!
Why Build Strong Core Muscles?
Teach your dog to learn how to balance on a wobble board and you’ll help build one of the most critical aspects of a three-legged dog’s life: strong core muscles. Why is it beneficial to build strong abdominals?
- Helps to prevent spinal issues
- Can target specific limbs for weight-bearing therapy and muscle strengthening rehab.
- Boost confidence on changing surfaces
- Develops better stamina
- Help build better balance
Build or Buy, Wobble Boards are Fun!
Keep in mind wobble board games are an advanced activity; if your Tripawd is new to rehab therapy, you’ll want to start by familiarizing her with uneven surfaces. Have your Tripawd walk on couch cushions placed on the floor, then try a FitPAWS Balance Pad, move up to the Balance Disc, Paw Pods and eventually a Wobble Board.
