The underwater treadmill tank provides low impact exercise in a reduced gravity environment. By adjusting the height of the water, up to 40% of the weight on the dog’s limbs can be reduced, eliminating concussive stress on joints. The water also provides resistance with every stride, which can be increased by the use of built-in water jets. The underwater treadmill is most beneficial for dogs who require decreased weight- bearing exercises.

The canine underwater treadmill features adjustable speeds. Dogs are introduced slowly to the treadmill to make them more comfortable. As exercise sessions progress and the dog's strength and fitness increases, more resistance is provided with the built in hydro jets.
