Meet Our Favorite Tool for Tripawd Exercise and Fitness
You hear us say it all the time but it’s worth repeating. Tripawds need strong core muscles. When a three-legged cat or dog has strong abdominal and back muscles, they can better support their body. Strong core muscles helps all of us stand, move, and sit properly.
One of the best ways to get your Tripawd’s core muscles in shape is with the FitPAWS Balance Disc.
The Balance Disc one of our favorite tools to build strength and promote balance. In this video, dog training expert Robert Cabral shows these excellent fitness games for dogs with four legs. Your Tripawd may be able to do the easiest ones.
Always check with your animal rehabilitation therapist
before starting these or any new exercises.
These balance workouts are even more valuable for amputee dogs!
