You probably already knew that partnering up with “man’s best friend” can be a great way to improve your health. After all, your dog needs a walk every single day, which means for the most part you now have a good reason to walk every single day.
But now there’s a way to take it to the next level. “Doggie and Me” fitness classes are popping up all over the nation.
This isn’t just a cute trend. There are practical reasons why puppy-and-human classes make sense. Pets struggle with obesity just as humans do, after all. And if both of you have been struggling this is a great opportunity.
There are a couple of places where you can hop on board this trend right here in the Washington, DC metro area. First, there’s the Thank Dog Bootcamp for those who would like an intense outdoor experience. Those who would be more comfortable on an indoor obstacle course might enjoy checking out Zoom Room instead.
Both classes combine the fitness work with obedience training for your dog, which makes them a perfect investment for brand new dog owners. Of course, that doesn’t mean that experienced dogs can’t join you in the classes as well. You might both learn something new, and dogs tend to enjoy doing just about anything if they get to do it with you.
Prefer to exercise alone? Have a cat? We don’t see a “Kitty and Me” trend popping up any time soon.
