    Where can I get a Paw disc?

  • cynthia says:

    Would you be able to ship one of the paw discs to me in New Zealand?

  • Sandy & Karma says:

    And please remind me, more air = easier than less air????

    • Carol R says:

      Sandy, I just watched the intro video on this section and Dr. E addressed your question. Less air = easier. More air results in a rounder surface resulting in more rocking thus more difficulty.

      • Sandy & Karma says:

        Thanks Carol – I must have missed that because after I listened to it I still had that question, although I was SO tired last night when I listened……lol!

        • Coach Leslie says:

          Correct. In the lower level equipment more air makes it more difficult. Where it gets confusing is the bigger products like the peanut and donut. Both of those have an ideal inflation range (80-90%) and really should only be used in that range. But I actually don’t use those pieces a lot.

            I have a dumb question…I ordered a giant fitbone for my ~60 # goldens. I think it needs air and I’ve used the little pump that comes with it. Does it take a fair amount of pumping? I may not have done it enough because I haven’t seen any change. I guess the question is, are there any hints to know about inflating? Thanks!

          • Coach Leslie says:

            Yes, it can take a lot of pumping with the little pump. Also make sure you’ve jabbed the needle all the way into the fitbone. The giant fitbone is always going to be more unstable than the smaller fitbones because the sidewalls aren’t reinforced. It’s hard to find a balance of not too under inflated and not overinflated.

  • Sandy & Karma says:

    Leslie – This sounds like an exciting month jam packed full of stuff! I know I asked you this question before but I never wrote it down and now I would have to go back through a zillion comments to figure out where your answer was… can you give me the link again for the pink paw discs????
