After last Wednesday’s discussion on getting motivated to live actively with your dog, it’s probably safe to assume your dog is either at the door dying to get her energy fix for the day, or hiding under the table because you gave “going to the park” a whole new scary meaning.
Whipping winds, snow covered grass, and below freezing temps give us a handful of excuses to neglect our on-going efforts to make a lifestyle change and get into shape. Let’s face it, if we can’t get our butts into gear and get fit, what chance do our dogs have of avoiding those winter pounds?
The feeble attempts people make consist of gimmick diets that just leave you hungry and out of shape, overpriced home workout equipment, and inconsistent work out partners that are just as unmotivated to make a lifestyle change as you. So often, we overlook the one of the greatest workout tools we have; our canine companions.
