A workout in our tub can have many benefits for your pet. Dogs that are recovering from surgery, getting ready for hunting season, or just are shaking off the winter blues can gain muscle and flexibility from tub work outs.
How can the underwater treadmill help my dog?
- Increase range of motion of joints
- Reduce pain
- Increase circulation
- Increase muscle tone
- Reduce stress and anxiety through exercise
- Increase body awareness (proprioception)
Tub workouts last anywhere from 5 minutes to a 1/2 an hour, depending on the fitness of your pet. We can play with three variables in making a workout for your dog: time, speed, and resistance. The resistance is changed by adding or decreasing the water level.
