4-in-1 K9FITvest™: LEVEL 1 STARTER KIT
Includes Vest, Starter Weights and Exercise Program
Fun. Wearable. Fitness. Walk or run – Whatever your dog does, the gravity enhanced K9FITvest was designed to do it too! The patent-pending design allows natural freedom of movement, while also being conscious of canine anatomy. Simply wear K9FITvest to integrate the benefits of resistance training and body awareness with your dog’s activities. Turn an evening stroll (or your stairs) into a calorie-burning Power Walk aimed at improving muscle strength and endurance.
The K9FITvest provides a low-level therapeutic approach to resistance training (Level 1 Starts at 3-5% of Body Weight). This approach helps to direct progressive strengthening of a dog’s body from the inside out for companion pets and athletes. By following the K9FITvest program and its K9 Fitness Level Scoring System you can gradually increase the intensity of your dog’s activities and fitness levels without changing vests. That’s right one vest accommodates 3 Levels of Fitness. Additionally, the combination of strategically placed weights and 4-way breathable compression properties of the material act as a second layer of skin hugging the body to help reduce anxiety and improve focus and movement.
FITNESS: Add versatility to any canine workout program. Helps boost all five components of fitness from cardio, to muscular strength, endurance, body composition and flexibility. Prescribed Fitness Level Scoring System directs gradual and progressive strengthening of a dogs body from the inside out.
SENSORY INTEGRATION: Compression fabric and weights provide gentle hug to help reduce anxiety during introductions to new activities
SAFETY: High Visibility Reflective Material ensures your dog is seen in dim and low light situations.
THERAPY: Interchangeable Therapeutic Cold Packs (sold separately) can help cool muscles after a workout. Or you can turn your vest into a cooling vest on hot days. Simply remove resistance weights and add cooling packs.

Admittedly there may be some dogs that fall into a different size based on their individual build. If your dog’s measurements fall between sizes, please choose the size smaller, or call us for more information 877-563-5151. Girth is measured by using a string or soft measuring tape just behind the dogs front legs on the deepest part of the chest.
