Puppy Fitness With Kong Tunnel~FitDog Friday

I bought the puppies a Kong tunnel. I got this so they can have a interactive so to speak toy and get them used to different items. It’s scary for puppies or adult dogs to go into tunnels so I thought it would be great to get this Kong tunnel and start my puppies out as wee little pups using it so one day if their owners decide to do agility with them they will hopefully retain a foundation for using the tunnel and not be afraid of it. I also got them a cube to play with. These items offer exercise in learning balance as when they go into it and walk it shifts and rolls and the puppies have to learn how to balance and coordination. They work their brain, muscles and legs. I first showed them the tunnel and cube in the house and they got used to it there then we moved outside for a small amount of time to get used to grass and being outside.

This day was their first day outside. It was of course a new adventure for them since they have just been walking on carpet and laminate so they were afraid at first. They have now been out a hand full of times they are getting used to it and more comfortable about it so they are starting to explore. With the exploring they are getting more exercise so they aren’t looking like little butter balls as much.
