Aqua Therapy Benefits

Due to water resistance, a variety of muscle groups is used and build up in the water, therefore it is a more well-rounded, complete workout that they would receive from a run outdoors (a 15- to 20-minutes swimming is comparable to a 1,5 hour run on land)


It is "joint friendly" because heavy or older dogs can exercise without carrying all their weight on their joints


A good way to cool down AND exercise on hot summer days, when longer walks are not possible


Swimming also releases endorphin and serotonin in the brain, short: swimming makes your dog happy! (In fact, swimming just once every two weeks will keep your dog’s serotonin levels at the puppy level)
