KRUUSE Rehab Weight Cuffs are used to exercise the dog’s muscles and can be used for both rehabilitation and wellness training programmes. When exercising the dog’s hind legs, the weight cuffs are placed above or below the hock with the side pockets on the outside of the body and when exercising the front legs the weight cuffs should be placed above or below the carpus. The weight cuffs can be worn single or in pairs.
Exercising with weight cuffs will result in stronger muscles and better movements. The training should be adjusted from using easy weights to heavier ones after a couple of weeks. A suitable weight to start with is one gram per kilo of the dog’s bodyweight. After some time you can increase the weight to two grams per kilo of the dog’s bodyweight.
Example: A dog with a weight of 26 kg bodyweight starts exercising with 26 gramme in the weight cuffs. As weights you can use coins. When you start up new training sessions, do not carry out exercise for more than 10–15 minutes. After two weeks you can increase exercises to two separate occasions instead.
User Manual: The weight cuffs are placed either above or below the hock joints or the carpus joints, depending on whether you want to train the dog’s back or front leg muscles.
