Muscle Conditioning

The underwater treadmill is a great workout for animals that may need extra muscle building for any reason.  Working dogs, agility dogs and show dogs can all benefit from the underwater treadmill, the gait analysis from the technician and the access to a consistent, safe, well-monitored exercise plan.

The water can be lowered as the animal builds stamina and provide less lift and more resistance for muscle development and endurance training.  Some animals need seasonal exercise in the winter to keep up for warm-weather activities in order to decrease the risk of injury from disuse.
