Canine Strength & Conditioning in the Underwater Treadmill

For Busy Lifestyles

At Urban K9, we fully understand that a busy schedule or your own physical limitations may not allow you to provide regular exercise for your dog. However, just as for humans, physical activity is important for the health and longevity of your pet. Daily exercise can help avoid a thousand-dollar vet bill due to a torn ACL or health issues caused by obesity.

What if it were possible for your dog to get the exercise he/she deserves while you’re out doing necessary errands? Wouldn’t it be great if you could simply drop Fido off for a workout on your way to the grocery store and pick him up on your way back home? Well, now you can!
