So it is the first week into the New Year and it has been a very cold one here in WI. As we know, many people use the 1st of January to make that resolution to get healthy, fit, or both for the year. With the weather discouraging us, normally daily “to do’s”, something else comes up, now the weather-just cannot go out!!! UGH! What is a person to do?
Many times we say to stay motivated or to keep that exercise time slot, have an exercise partner. If you have ever tried to exercise at home, you may have noticed your dog trying to join in or get in the way. You know they always want to be with you and do what you do, so why not let them become your partners for exercise? It will keep you both much healthier.
I take mine on runs/walks 4-5 times a week, because running in a yard is NOT exercise for them. I also do Doga with them to keep them stretched out and I then am able to touch them everywhere. The hands on and breathing helps to calm them. Spending time exercising with your fur baby, doing the Doga, you will receive a multitude of benefits! I can help to show you how do do poses, breathing, massage on your fur baby and create a fun sequence that will benefit you both.
I have added a small article that was on the DOGVACAY site talking all about Doga. Nope, I am not the only one doing this (around here maybe). But, on the east coast they have actually classes for Doga!! So, click here to read additional information. Scroll down to, Dogs + Yoga = Doga, of June 06, 2012.
