FitPAWS equipment is designed to safely help your dogs achieve a certain level of fitness for their health, for the longevity of their career and to avoid painful and costly injury.
 
The key to FitPAWS equipment is to learn to use the equipment appropriately, in a safe manner.
 
Master Trainer Sean Kent will complete a comprehensive assessment and develop an individualized fitness program based on the dog's needs and the owner's goals

Training on FitPAWS® equipment will help working dogs develop core strength, body awareness, and self-confidence. Working dogs have many of the same risks associated with highly competitive canine athletes and can reduce their risks of injuries by having a consistent physical training program.
 
Incorporate FitPAWS equipment early in puppy training, and maintain core strength training throughout your working dog’s career for increased performance and injury prevention."

PREVENTION FOCUSED CONDITIONING​
Injury prevention is the focus of the work that we do at Canine Athletic care.  
 
Dogs can't decide what condition they should be in to compete safely; we as owners have that responsibility. 
 
We want to make sure your dog has a long and healthy life and career without painful and often costly injuries.

    5 stars! We have been training with Sean for a few months now and both of my dogs have come miles since! We love our fitpaws program, my dogs have a fun time "playing" on the equipment keeping them not only physically fit, but challenging them with a mental work out as well! Would highly recommend Sean to anyone looking to up their game! Jessica
