Fun. Wearable. Fitness. Walk or run - Whatever your dog does, the gravity enhanced K9FITvest was designed to do it too! Allows natural freedom of movement, while also being conscious of canine anatomy. Simply wear K9FITvest to integrate the benefits of resistance training and body awareness with your dog's activities. Turn an evening stroll (or your stairs) into a calorie-burning Power Walk aimed at improving muscle strength and endurance.
The K9FITvest provides a low-level therapeutic approach to resistance training. This approach helps to direct progressive strengthening of a dog's body from the inside out for companion pets and athletes. By following the K9FITvest program and its K9 Fitness Level Scoring System you can gradually increase the intensity of your dog's activities and fitness levels. Additionally, the combination of strategically placed weights and 4-way breathable compression properties of the vest act as a second layer of skin hugging the body to help reduce anxiety and improve focus and movement during training. K9FITvest Provides:
- FITNESS: Integrate Resistance Training with your Dog's Activities to Help Boost Cardio, Muscular Strength and Endurance
- SENSORY INTEGRATION: Compression Fabric and Low-Level Resistance Can Help to Reduce Anxiety by Providing Gentle Assurance
- SAFETY: High Visibility Reflective Material Ensures Your Dog Is Seen In Low-Light Situations
Level 1 Starter Kit Includes: Vest, Exercise Program and Starter Weights. Vest can be used with Level 2 weights.
