Fitness for dogs

Penny likes to run and jump. However, sometimes I'm not sure how much exercise is good for her. Therefore I was interested to read an article called Fitness in your backyard. It gives a general overview of what kind of exercise is suitable for the average dog and how you could manage this in your local environment.

I found the article by following a link from a great Squidoo called Canine Athletes! by JohannTheDog. The Squidoo has lots of interesting information about a great variety of sports and athletic activities for dog.

If you haven't already visited Squidoo, it's worth a visit. It's a community of sites where anyone can set up a site to teach a skill or share a passion. Tonight there were 848 sites (called 'lenses') for the search word dog and 199 for canine.

Penny, you must spend hours researching all these dog sites! Don't you ever sleep? There were some interesting articles and videos in here. I wouldn't like to have to come up against the highly trained Pit Bull. He was awesome. I like doing laps around the front and back yard. Chasing pigeons off the property is also good exercise.

Hi! Great site you have here. Thanks for linking to my Squidoo lens. We hope it's helpful!

We do stretches before any activity - cookie stretches, neck stretches, arm stretches, and a little jogging. We think it's really important!

Keep up the good work and woofs to you! Johann
