Dog in Ohio Forced to Face Her Fear of Exercise Balls After COVID-19 Sees Gyms Close

When an exercise ball was introduced to her Norwalk, Ohio home, dog Zoey had to face her fears on March 31. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued a stay-at-home order for the state through April 6, which included the closure of fitness centers.

This video from Shannon Adams shows her husband Bryan teaching Zoey had to “attack” the ball, proving “that she doesn’t have to be afraid of the exercise ball.”

Zoey is shown how to nudge the ball with her nose, and the ball doesn’t nudge back. Credit: Shannon Adams via Storyful
