Due to their unique shape they provide more motion and this increases the challenge. This can be useful for more advanced conditioning as a dog gets stronger. Also the unique egg shape allows for more weight transfer from front to back. The FitPAWS® Egg is a new shape of stability ball for the advanced canine athlete! It has a greater balance challenge due to its uneven shape and will shift in multi directions for advanced proprioception and body awareness. The professional-grade heavy-duty PVC material is formulated for use with dogs, provides superior gripping and resists damage caused by dog nails. When used in a core conditioning program, the FitPAWS® Egg can improve balance and coordination as well as stabilize weak areas. The FitPAWS® Egg easily inflates with an air pump (sold separately). You can also adjust the balance challenge by under-inflating so that the ball is not so firm. Helpful inflation hint The Egg is inflated by measuring to a desired height, not by air pressure (psi.) The size printed on each FitPAWS® Egg is the maximum inflation height the ball is designed to inflate up to, but you can always use the ball less inflated, if you wish, so that it is easier for your dog to balance on. The FitPAWS® Egg can be inflated with an air pump or your own air compressor that has a cone-shaped attachment. If you want to reach the maximum height but feel like the ball cannot take more air, let it sit overnight partially inflated with the plug in the ball. The material will soften and expand a little and be easier to fill. The next day continue to inflate to desired size. When you have reached the desired height, make sure you press the plug all of the way in, until the head of the plug is flush with the ball’s surface. This will ensure a good seal. At maximum height, the FitPAWS® Egg will feel tight and be the most challenging for your dog. www.kruuse.com Training DVD included
