I like to Move It! Move It!
(you get MAJOR Koly Kool points if you get the reference. I’ll give you a hint: the Mama is not cool.)
Both our bodies and our dogs bodies are made to move. Think of how you feel after a long day at the office or lounging on the couch. Tired, sluggish, stiff, cramped and achey. Now, think of how you feel after a cardio work out. Your muscles are warm and you feel that work out “after-glow”, the blood is flowing and you should feel tired, but invigorated. Experts suggest that the body needs at least 20 minutes of vigorous cardio, 3 times a week and you need even more than that if your goal is weight loss.
Aside for kicking your entire body into high gear, cardio also helps to strengthen your heart & lungs, reduce stress, help relieve anxiety and depression, help you sleep better and increase your energy levels. Cardio is where that “runner’s high” really kicks in. So, let’s get high together at K9 Kamp! *ahem* High on cardio and fetch that is! I may live in British Columbia, but I do not partake in our provincial plant. I am only four years old for barking out loud. Not Cool, pups. Not cool. I’m high on cardiovascular exercise.
Your Challenge (should you choose to accept it) is to play Fetch for 60 minutes this week.
Throw the ball. When your pup takes off after it, instead of standing still and doing whatever ridiculous thing it is you do while you wait for your dog to come back (I’m looking at you Mama, and that stupid iPhone!), I want you to race your dog to the ball. Even if your dog gets there first (and let’s face it, they will because we are far better at fetch than you are) run to the opposite end of the yard/field/park, call your dog back to you and retrieve the ball, so that you can throw it again. Play fetch with your dog, racing each other to the ball every throw.
