Weight loss is big business. The sale of supplements, DVD’s, gym memberships and more in America is a $60.9 billion market according to a 2011 article at PRWeb. There is always a new fad or type of diet hitting the market, and millions of willing participants looking for that ‘miracle’ weight loss trick. Into this mix comes a new idea from personal trainer Sheila Berrios that will benefit you and your pet. According to WXYZ.com, Sheila has partnered with Wag ‘N’ Tails to hold training classes that exercise you and your dog. Coach potato dogs and their owners will benefit from taking this class, as well as puppies learning reaction and control.
The class is called Bark ‘N’ Burn. The dogs exercise their muscles with their owners help on equipment made just for dogs. The dog owners are working out alongside their pets and the pets are learning to be more social while also getting their exercise. Many pet owners don’t realize they are exercising because they are focused on their dog. The human exercises are not intense, but there is cardio and stretching involved.
Dog workout classes are beginning to become popular across the country, but in Michigan Wag ‘N’ Tails is the trend setter and the first to start this program. Wag ‘N’ Tails uses FitPAWS® Canine Conditioning Equipment in their Bark ‘N’ Burn classes.
FitPAWS® Canine Conditioning Equipment can be used by our four-legged friends for core strengthening, increased range of motion and flexibility, neuromuscular facilitation, sensory and perceptual stimulation, joint alignment, and balance control. Whether your dog is involved in agility, dock jumping, other dog sports, or is a working dog or a couch potato with healthier aspirations, core strength is a fundamental element used by your dog to control its body when jumping, turning, running and to help prevent injuries.
