We often hear about canine fitness centers, which include aromatherapy, massage, acupressure and fitness swimming. Sometimes as dog parents, we do not have the time to exercise our K9’s as often as we should and dropping them off at a dog fitness center is the next best option.Drop -offs are available for thirty minute swims and playtime for your canines.Some of these are designed to be soothing and include spacious rooms for doggie daycare, treatment rooms for massage and indoor swimming pools with large backyards to romp around in.
Most technicians at these centers have veterinary care experience and have a veterinarian on call. For dogs that are partially paralyzed or suffering from injuries, swimming exercises the limbs. Dogs that have high- energy also frequent dog fitness centers to calm them.
As dog parents realize that their canines need regular exercise and massage as a preventive measure to maintain good health, especially in old age, these centers are not only for the pampered canine but for those suffering from injuries.
Aqua exercise is beneficial for the following
- Hip dysplasia
- Elbow dysplasia
- Weight loss and conditioning
- Mental focus and relaxation
- Solving some behavior problems
- Sports injuries
- Pain or discomfort
- Degenerative joint disease
Many dog parents are turning to alternative treatments at these dog fitness centers, some found nearby their homes or place of work, to help heal minor injuries and are happy with the results.Some canine fitness centers are more focused on full day care while others provide a variety of ways, geared towards improving and maintaining the health of your furry-best friend.
