K9FITvest for fun wearable fitness - Super Atheltes Hayden and Herkey wearing K9FITvestAlmost a year ago we were introduced to the DogTread K9FITVest. We were interested in using the product to help train and condition our two labs Herky and Hayden. Both Herky and Hayden compete in dock jumping events throughout the year so it is very important for them to stay fit and conditioned. In the time that we have been using the FITVest we have noticed a big change in their strength and stamina. They are able to work harder for longer periods of time, which also means they are holding their energy throughout an entire dock jumping event and not wearing down. We use the FITVest year round off the dock to do strength training and interval training. Herky Running in K9FITvest - Imporve Your Dogs Workout with Fun Wearable FitnessOutside in the summer we do stairs, retrieving, and working on stepping up and over objects with the vest on, along with many of the exercises that are posted on the DogTread website. In the winter we use it indoors on the FitPaws equipment and the K9FITBones. This has greatly improved their balance and core strength. We love the K9FITVest, it has brought a whole new element to the way we do our work outs with the dogs and it has added an extra level to getting them fit that we have not been able to achieve in the past. We are using the vest in workouts 3-5times a week with the dogs. Doing these new exercises and work outs has also been great way for us to bond with the dogs. The dogs absolutely love seeing me pull the vests out, their excitement defiantly keeps me motivated and wanting to make sure they get their works outs in every week.

K8FITvest DogTreaad CanineGym Gear worn by Nellie of the  	 Sand Spring ChesapeakesSand Spring Chesapeakes just love their new K9FITvest, I got it to help Nellie loose weight but when I get it out all three dogs jump up and down and want it on them. I got the size large and it fits my gang at 66-75#. It has a snug fit so the weighs stay in place on the back and the dogs don’t even realize they are wearing it. It’s nylon material moves with the dogs and lets them really stretch out when running. Thank you for a very cool vest in helping Nellie to loose weight. A really cool feature is that cool packs can replace the weights so she really can be cool.

Slim Doggy Jack wearing the K9FITvest for a workout on the stairsSlimdoggy highly recommends the K9Fit Vest ™ . The K9Fit Vest can be used to increase the intensity of any workout or to add a strength training component to a “normal cardio type” of workout. We especially like to use the vest when we are pressed for time and want to get a quick and effective full body training session. Slimdoggy Jack likes the comfortable and snug stretch fabric material. I wish my own vest looked so cool and fit so well!

Sensory Integration with K9FITvest - Romeo in K9FITvest on DogTread Dog TreadmillRomeo was our 3rd rescued bully breed, but he was not like our other two. Romeo was hyperactive- he was in constant motion pacing, pawing, or wagging. He leaned against our legs when we went for walks and sat against us when we were home, but he showed no signs of fear or resource guarding- he just seemed to like the way it felt. He HATED grooming or anything that included light touch. He couldn’t tolerate the shower setting on the showerhead in the bath tub for a bath. He screamed (like he was in pain) if he was held gently or his paws were touched. He loved being held tightly or pet firmly. Our son was the first to figure out that the way to calm Romeo was to lay on him! The first time we saw it, we told him to get off, but he told us to watch. Sure enough, Romeo’s whole body relaxed when he had the pressure he seemed to crave. Our son also discovered that Romeo liked to sleep under blankets and pillows- even when it was hot out. We then had an idea what the problem was, but didn’t know where to turn- sensory integration in people is not well understood, so we assumed we were on our own with a dog.

With the goal of helping Romeo become a service dog, we knew that we needed to get a treadmill to continue his walks even when it was too hot to be outside. After thorough research, we went to buy our DogTread treadmill at the dog show. While we were there, we learned about CanineGym™ products and the K9FITvest®- tight, weighted vests for dogs. We knew this was the product for Romeo! Romeo put one on and was so relaxed for the entire dog show! While he was wearing it, it immediately eliminated his need to lean on things.

With repeated use around the house and when out, Romeo has little need to lean against things now- even when his K9FITvest is off! After about 6 months of use, his activity level is significantly decreased and he can focus on tasks much better than he once could. In fact, people see him and comment on what a well behaved, obedient dog he is! He no longer fights baths or having his paws touched. Because of his K9FITvest, Romeo’s sensory integration has improved and he is now able to fulfill the service dog role for our son!

Thanks for creating great products that have helped our entire pack!

Fondly,

Natalie & Ken, son (12), Romeo (3), Raya (6), Kona (6), and Petey (2)
