~examines self in the mirror~ Well, I guess there is a little roll starting around my neck and that jiggly spot, down by my flanks. In my defense, I’m pretty sure those are like, 90% skin rolls. I’m very puggy that way. Hmmm, I guess could stand to lose a few pounds.
I am not the only one.
The American Veterinary Association estimates that there are 41.2 million pet dogs in the US and a recent study by Phizer suggests that nearly 47% are considered overweight. WHAT THE BARK?! That is a whole lot of chubby dogs. The time to get Fit with Fido is now! Even if you and your pet are in tip top shape, sharing fitness and fun can help build your relationship, improve obedience and add an element of fun to training.
We are excited to be working with Peggy and Kelly, from Peggy’s Pet Place and authors of the upcoming book, Dieting With My Dog to bring you –
Every Thursday between September 8th and October 13th, Koly & Kelly will issue their Fido’s Fitness Challenge. These challenges will start easy in week one (we’ve got to ease ourselves into fitness not cannonball from the high dive board!) and get a little more difficult each week. The challenges don’t take long; no more than an hour total each week and they are meant to be fun. The exercises are designed for people and pets that may be out of shape and there will be variations available for those that feel like they would like an extra challenge.
We will play games like Fetch It Yourself! and Tug With Me!, share some great low-calorie treat options, information on diet and exercise, and give away some fantastic prizes!
