I am an active healthy senior dog. I Golden Enjoy Lots of FUN workout play.
A month ago, I shared my stair exercise video and introduced a FUNctional fitness apparel, K9FITvest by DogTread.
Many of you have asked what is a K9FITvest?
K9FITvest is a wearable fitness apparel that helps to increase the intensity level of any dog activity. K9FITvest increases endurance, burns calories, builds strength, assists on body awareness, enhances flexibility, aids in the prevention of arthritis and helps reduce anxiety.
The K9FITvest is designed to fit form-fitting like a glove to your dogs body.
It is designed not to move and/or slide. K9FITvest provides a gentle hug and pressure.
I typically wear the K9FITvest during stair exercise, with the main purpose of maintaining muscle strength and endurance. According to my mom, wearing the K9FITvest has given me extra energy and speed. I am her stair buddy workout. I am helping my mom prepare for a stair climb event. Next week, she’ll be climbing one of the tallest buildings in Chicago. She’ll be on her own as no dogs are allowed.
Nowadays, it’s cold and the daylight is getting shorter. With the K9FITvest, my late afternoon/evening walk(hills walk) in the park become a Power-Walk. I do several warm up stretches before I start. Hind Stretch is one of my favorite and its PAWsome for my back, neck and hind limbs. So lucky to find a permanent rock that can assist me with this stretch. The sit to down (aka doggy push up) is another favorite strengthen warm up I often do which helps prepare my muscles and joints.
Why would a senior dog like me wear a K9FITvest?
As a senior dog, I don’t wear the K9FITvest at all times. K9FITvest provide a low-level therapeutic approach to canine resistance training, also known as strength training. As a senior dog, it is important for me to do activities designed to maintain bone strength, muscle tone and stamina. I don’t need much resistance, the K9FITvest helps overall with my body awareness.
Will definitely plan to do more post with the K9FITvest.
