Resistance Training challenges different muscles – regardless of your dog’s current level of fitness we highly recommend following our prescribed Fitness Level Scoring System to ensure gradual and progressive strengthening. K9FITvest was designed to accommodate 3 fitness resistance levels. Dogs should use Level 1 for 4-6 weeks at least 3 days a week before progressing to the next level. Adjust time worn and types of exercise to increase intensity and challenge different muscles before moving up to Fitness Level 2.
