THE ULTIMATE IN CANINE FITNESS TRAINING
“As a veterinarian dealing with sports medical problems in working and performance dogs, I pay close attention to the biomechanics and gait of my patients. Many an athletic injury is due to repetitive stress or unbalanced movement. Until the K9FITvest, there hasn’t been any weighted vest on the market specifically designed to take into account a dog’s body shape and movement while wearing the vest; all of the ones that I have seen roll and shift within a short time setting these dogs up for back and joint injuries. The Fit Vest, with its soft, body-conforming weights, elastic, shaped material and how-to instructions will help a dog get fit without getting injured. I am excited to be able to recommend the K9FITvest to my working and performance dog clients.”

“I like working with the K9FITvest. It is a safe option for my clients when adding resistance to their canine’s cross training program. I like how the weight is distributed along the thoracic/lumbar back. It has been great for strengthening the back and core muscles when preparing/strengthening for backpacking and loading the dog with supplies etc…”
