Who Let The Dogs Out

January is Walk Your Dog Month. Earlier this month I wrote a Blog about resolutions. Was one of your resolutions to get more exercise? Don’t buy that treadmill! Hook up that leash to your dog and get moving! As some of you may know, I taught fitness classes for about 25 years but then turned my attention to my pet business. I am still an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor. When I hear exercise resolutions, I can’t help but put on my instructor “hat.” ACE (American Council on Exercise) had a campaign years ago that had a picture of a Weimaraner with a leash hanging out of its mouth. The caption underneath the picture read “Think of him as an exercise machine with fur.” Walk Your Dog Month ties in so well with Train Your Dog Month and with New Year’s Resolutions. It is no wonder they chose January to be Walk Your Dog Month! It is said that a tired dog is a good dog. Maybe you should start your training session with a nice brisk walk and burn off some of that excess energy. Do you or your dog need to lose a couple of pounds? Walk Your Dog! Is your dog bored, destructive? Walk Your Dog! Need help with all this walking and training call East Paws Pet Services in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our number is (954) 468-9981. We will burn that excess energy off with a walk and maybe a little training along the way!
