F.I.T. CLUB – WEIGHT LOSS/FITNESS/CONDITIONING
What are your goals for your dog? Do you want a stronger hiking partner? A faster agility run, or a straighter sit in obedience? Is your dog overweight? Maybe your dog has extra energy and you’d like an outlet.
We offer several different conditioning and weight loss options. We have staff with expert knowledge in performance, canine behavior and everything in between.
Conditioning in the hydrotherapy pool and underwater treadmill, or customized land exercises – are the perfect combination for maximum benefit.

What is a F.I.T. Evaluation?
The purpose of the F.I.T. evaluation is to become acquainted with you and your dog, learn about your goals and design a customized F.I.T. program for your dog.
During this first visit you can expect:
- Baseline – Key Body Measurements
- Weight/Height: Weight/Height Ratio
- Abdominal/Thoracic Circumference
- Body/Muscle Condition Score
- Diet type, volume, and feeding methods
- Review personality, likes and dislikes, etc.
- Current exercise level, activities and skills
- Movement Video Assessment (Gaiting)
- Skill Assessment – land, balance, water, endurance
It is important that your dog is comfortable, so we take our time teaching each of the skills needed for this program. Most dogs are introduced to water during their evaluation. We are always in the water with them to make sure they feel safe and understand what to do. The evaluation will determine the best level of fitness to start with your dog.
