I have a 35 lb French Bulldog who recently had spinal surgery and will require range of motion therapy at home to help him regain strength and hopefully be able to walk again. My question is what size peanut should I purchase? I plan on laying him across the middle with the ball ends on either side.
Answer by ChewyMay 09, 2019
We recommend measuring your pet to determine which size would best suit them. The dimensions of the Extra Small is 34 x 16 x 16 inches, the Small is 38 x 22 x 22 inches, and the Medium is 40 x 24 x 24 inches.

Does this come with a pump?
Answer by ChewyApr 14, 2020
This stability ball includes an inflation pump with purchase.

So if my Vizsla is about 21-22in at the shoulder I should get the medium or the small? Should his shoulder height match the dimensions of the ball or be 1 size bigger?
Answer by ChewyDec 05, 2019
For Core Conditioning, measure the length of your dog when it is in a neutral standing position from the front legs to the back legs. For Weight Bearing Activities, choose a ball that is slightly under your dog's withers (or highest part of the shoulders where the neck meets the back).

Will the nubs hurt or be uncomfortable if the dog is laying across the middle rather than standing on it? Our dog is very thin with muscle loss, hence the need for the ball exercises.
Answer by ChewyJul 22, 2021
Many vets and rehab specialists use the peanut for just this purpose and there is a smooth section in the middle we call a “saddle” so that is a good option for this use with the peanut. When inflated, the peanut should “give” a little with the weight of the dog, so the trax nubs should not cause pain, in fact, it might actually provide positive stimulation for the dog similar to a massage type mat. But please watch the dog for signs of discomfort and move the dog to the smooth section if that is a concern.

Disappointed

We were looking forward to enjoying the FitPAWS Peanut with our (2) Australian Shepherds. Inflating it was easy with no problems. However, the FitPAWS lasted 5 minutes! The strength of the material is faulty and ripped from their nails. Possibly this was a manufacturing issue or defect. Not sure if we would purchase again.

This is not an x-small peanut for your toy dog!

FitPaws has mislabeled the measurements for this Peanut Dog Stability Ball - I ordered the x-small for my Yorkie. It was advertised AND marked on the package as being 40cm in size - this would be about 15.7 inches. Well it is really over 30" on length end-to-end!!!!! A total waste of money. And it is too bad because it is good quality material etc. but HUGE compared to what was advertised on Chewy's website and on the packaging. This is not Chewy's fault - this is the fault of FitPAWS. I am very disappointed.

Perfect Size

This ball is the perfect size for my Border Collie. It was easy to blow up with the tools they provided. It seems pretty tough - and I hope to get years of use out of it.

Good, but for smaller dog

It’s a good product, but it’s much smaller than I thought it would be. I must have read the dimensions wrong.

Price difference

I see that you have this on sale for almost half of what I paid for it less than 1 month ago.

Great inflated 'peanut'

I wanted to teach my Labrador to 'barrel roll' for his Performance Trick Title. I started with a smaller, smooth peanut, which he would walk over after only a week. This is the perfect size for him. I did invest in a new nozzle for my air compressor because it was just too hard for me to inflate this peanut as large as I wanted with the hand pump that came with it. But I'm not very strong, so don't let that inhibit you! We both are enjoying playing with this peanut. I'm very much looking forward to begin teaching him lateral moves once he's passed his Performer Evaluation.

Pricey but they do hold up!

We used FitPaw equipment at training classes both for trick training and for fitness. Now, with Covid restrictions, I wanted something with which to train at home. These are definitely not inexpensive for inflatables, but they do work, and have held up well so far. Safe, with decent traction, my active, intelligent 11 month old benefits from the physical and mental stimulation, so it was worth the investment for me.

Great physical and mental exercise!

Our Golden Retriever puppy loves to run, jump, play, etc, but we were cautioned by our vet that too much activity at his age (6mon) can cause early-onset arthritis. This balance ball is a great way to tire him out mentally and physically while giving his growing joints a break from higher impact workouts. We started with a safety harness, but he's gotten so proficient that we just use a spotter now and he does great (8mon). He's very confident on new terrains, and you can tell how much stronger he's gotten. We have a lot of experience with animal rehab, so this product fit very intuitively into our lives. Solid piece of training equipment!

Medium is too small

Not the right size for my dog. Thinking the balancing disc might be better ?
