April is canine fitness month, so it’s time to upgrade your dog’s exercise routine. Long walks and hikes are great, but they’re not always an option. Luckily, our favorite fitness gear for dogs offer great use inside or outside your home. Get ready for a whole lot of chewing, running, catching, and throwing — and most importantly a super fit four-legged friend!
This 2-pack of chewy play rings is sure to keep your dog stimulated for a while. You can hold one while your pup tries to pull it away from you, throw it so they can sprint and catch it, or even toss it in shallow water if your dog loves to swim and play fetch all at the same time. It may be a simple piece of equipment, but sometimes, that’s all your best bud needs!
If you’re looking for a fancy new toy to spoil your dog with, opt for this automatic ball launcher. Much like the machines used to practice tennis, this contraption will automatically pop out three non-abrasive tennis balls for your pet to catch, carry back, and place inside the hole at the top. Cardio and coordination is always a great combo.
Also from iFetch, the iDig is another fun pick your dog will enjoy. Simply hide your furry friend’s favorite treats underneath the top layer and watch them use their sense of smell and dig away! Now, your dig-loving dog can do his or her favorite thing without the guilt or mess.
Just like the previous pick, energetic dogs will also get tons of exercise and entertainment with this snuffle mat. Hide your pet’s treats throughout the mat’s soft material, then let them sniff and dig around to find every single one. This one will keep both their brain and body active.
On those days when you’re too busy to take your buddy on a proper walk, this innovative bone will help you out. It’s shaped like a regular bone (for familiarity), but it spins, flips, and moves around in unexpected ways that will drive your pet wild and get those paws moving.
Outward Hound Interactive Dog Training Agility Pole
Gone fishing? It only looks like it. This whimsical toy features a durable nylon cord and two fuzzy “tails” for your dog to chase around. Whip this pick through the air and watch your pet jump, run with it so they can chase you, or swish it around in all directions to help develop your dog’s agility skills.
This fully waterproof health monitor is the perfect way to track your dog’s activity. It’s lightweight and attaches to your pup’s collar, and you can keep an eye on their stats through a handy app. From measuring daily rest and distance traveled to calories burned, there are so many ways to ensure your dog is having a healthy, productive day.
