It is my turn to choose the theme for the week and I decided upon Fitness – pet wellbeing.

Xavi enjoys all type of exercise, but what we can’t do without is core strengthening.  Here he is on his FitPAWS balance discs.  It’s also great therapy for his hips and has improved his balance (especially come dock diving season).

Deanna - Cool! How long does he stand on those? Do you have him do tricks and training on them too?

Jennifer - love it! Xavi is doing a much better job then I did yesterday trying to balance on those type of discs!

Karen - He has learned to stand on them for a good 5 minutes. He also trains on the big exercise balls for balance and treibball.

Trina - This is great exercise for the dogs! Izzy’s not as good at this as Xavi is, but we’re working on it. Great shot!

Marianne Cherry - wow – who knew that dogs had to work on core stabilization just like we humans do! makes total sense. I love his stance on those balance discs.

Alicia A Kapheim - Pretty great trick to get them to stand on wobbly discs! (And then stay in place for a photo!)

Marilina Davila - Xavi really takes fitness seriously! Are these really made for dogs? It’s not easy standing on one of those, let alone two!

Sharon Stokes - Wow! How awesome and clever is Xavi! That is a really super shot of him too!

Kelly Wolfe - Those balance discs are neat – I haven’t seen them before! I have a dog that has hip issues and it’d be interesting to see how these work with her. Dock diving sounds fun too. Looking forward to seeing Xavi in action once the season comes around. 🙂
