Balance Disc Product Guidelines
Congratulations on the purchase of your new FitPaws® Balance Training Disc.
Balance Discs come in two sizes and colors:
The FitPaws Balance Disc can be used for weight bearing activities and balance training for sporting and working dogs or for animal rehabilitation and therapy.
Adjust the inflation of your equipment to match the fitness level of your dog: No air is great for puppies, seniors and dogs who generally need to improve proprioception/limb awareness (nubby side up). Medium inflation is a great overall place to start. Over-inflated provides a flat top for better foot placement and adds a level of difficulty to any exercise.
Inflate the Balance Disc slowly. If you start to see a divot/dent appearing, stop inflating and let it rest. Try to push the dent in to reshape the disc before continuing with inflation. We recommend inflating the Balance Disc slowly over a 24 hour time period.

The sensory side of the Balance Disc provides neurosensory stimulation and additional grip ability for grip challenged dogs. The smooth side adds challenge to each exercise.
Did you know?
The FitPaws® Balance Disc has both a 14” or 22” training surface option. If you want your dog to stand with all four feet on top of a disc, you may have to use more than one disc as you want your dog to have a natural stance without a hunched back. If your main use is for weight bearing activities, choose the disc size that is most appropriate to your dog’s size so they can stand comfortable with 2 feet on the disc and 2 feet on the ground.
