AKC Fit Dog Level 1 Course
Dogs receive the same benefits from exercise as we do: lower stress levels, better sleep habits, and healthier minds and bodies. Adding a simple exercise routine to your dog's day helps keep their minds and bodies healthy for years to come!
Unfortunately, more than 50% of dogs in the United States are overweight. Even more suffer from behavioral problems. Implementing a fitness program for your dog can help your dog lose weight, gain greater mobility, and stimulate their brain and body to reduce problem behaviors.

Veterinarian clearance may be required for special cases.
