April is Canine Fitness Month
Too much sitting and too many calories in the form of treats or poor nutrition choices often contribute to weight gain. Besides causing our furry friends to have sore joints, difficulty breathing, a higher risk for cancer, canine diabetes and other diseases, obesity also shortens their lives.
Unfortunately, sedentarism has become the normal lifestyle for many dogs and their people. The opposite of a sedentary lifestyle is movement. Playing, being outside, engaging and moving. Canine Fitness Month encourages us to take a step toward a developing a healthier lifestyle and bond with our four-legged family members.
In honor of Canine Fitness Month, we are asking you to share a photo of your pet in action! At the end of the month our staff will vote for our favorite photo and the winner will receive a prize! We will announce the winner on May 1st!
Let's get physical!
