For a real test of agility and coordination, the Stepping Pads are perhaps the ultimate challenge. Dogs can complete it by moving from one pad to the next without touching the ground. While large dogs may be able to simply step across the pads, it is still challenging for them to do so quickly and with all four feet on the pads. Smaller dogs may even have to hop from one pad to the next, providing more exercise, excitement and difficulty. To help keep pets safe, the pads have a highly specialized Paw Protect coating which ensures that the pads will not hurt their paws, even is they step on them at high speeds. The pads are 16 inches wide to accommodate both front or back sets of paws. There are five pads in total included in this set, which are mounted in-ground atop 3×3 galvanized steel tubes with variable heights.
