Our water walker is the latest state of the art treadmill. It is used for dogs to exercise whilst being supported by warm water. It achieves an exaggerated range of movement in the limbs and encourages flexion and extension in a very controlled environment. Adjusting the water height allows us to increase or decrease the resistance the dog is walking against and reduces the load on their joints. The speed of the treadmill can also be adjusted. The hydrotherapist can closely observe the dog's gait through the clear sides of the treadmill and based on that will guide and adjust the dogs to achieve a better gait pattern.
The water walker has easy access doors at both ends and will easily accommodate dogs of any size. It is also useful in dogs who are not comfortable in the pool
