Your dog might be your best workout buddy

Hi there!

It's me Svetlana.

As a proud new owner of a Yorkie puppy I am constantly seeking ways of including my dog in my exercise routine. Yes, he is still very little, 16 weeks old and weights only 2 lbs and 2 oz. So for now I can play indoor games with him, chase him around and then let him chase me around. I take him on my walks in a front pouch carrier, and he seems to enjoy it a lot. I do my back (and stretch) exercises many times per day just by bending over and picking him up from the floor or putting him back on the floor. Of course, running up and down the stairs to relocate him from the first floor to the bedrooms takes energy, as well as does cleaning, picking up toys, bathing, etc.


This is my Ptichka!


When he will grow up, I will take him on walks on the leash. I already started training him to get used to his tiny leash and a harness.

I found many articles about working out with dogs, and many people consider their dogs their best exercise buddies.
Please read and see if you can boost up your physical shape while still taking care of your pet.

So long! Stay warm (it was 19 degrees this morning here in Philly)!!!
