Every Sunday morning, a dog park opens at the De Jesus Oval, in BGC, encouraging dog owners to regularly be extra active with their pooch.
At the park, a dog gets its share of social interaction with other furballs and dog lovers there. But for fitness enthusiasts, the dog agility training is worth a try.
Numbered obstacle courses can go as many as 16 for novice and 20-22 for advanced learners. Although finishing the obstacles is already enough to break you and your canine some sweat, other programs on basic obedience, family manners, and competitive sports are available for full-blown dog training.
But don’t think that this is a workout just for your doggo. “We (dog owners) need to have a good sense of direction and a good awareness of where our body is,” says Elsie Pfleider, Training Director of Better Dog Canine Behavior Center.
Meanwhile, dogs can try a variety of canine fitness programs to build muscles, loosen joints, and improve balance, strength, and proprioception.
Never a time apart with the woofer, even on core or cardio day!
