The K9 Peanut ball is a peanut-shaped stability ball designed for canine fitness and core conditioning. Great for strength work will helping support the patient in senior, overweight and rehabilitation animals to enable stretches and an introduction to balance and core exercises.
The K9 Peanut ball is used for core conditioning of sporting and working dogs as well as for animal rehabilitation and therapy. Better for dogs than a round exercise ball, the unique shape of the peanut limits its movement to front/back or side/side, important for dogs new to this type of training. Great equipment for introducing your senior, overweight or rehabilitating pet to core conditioning, strength and fitness.
The professional-grade heavy-duty PVC material is formulated for use with dogs. It provides superior gripping and resists damage caused by dog nails.
You can also adjust the balance challenge by under-inflating so the ball is not as firm.
Product includes Peanut and hand pump.
ADVICE ON SIZING: For rehabilitation (post-surgery or injury, where pets are supported by the peanut to stand): we advise 30cm for toy breeds such as toy Poodles, Schnauzers, Pugs, French bulldogs; use 40cm for small to medium breeds such as Spaniels, Collies and medium mix breeds; 50cm for Retrievers, Labradors or larger mixed breeds. If you are unsure, please contact us.
