Yesterday, Brychwyn, Huxley and I went with Bethany to visit Lucie and Morgan. We five dogs always have a really great time together but yesterday I noticed how much exercise we get when we all meet. Maybe it is because Bethany had a cold for a few days and our fit dog time has been limited. Maybe it is because it was such a beautiful sunny day and we had lots of time to play. Or maybe it is because I am such a fit dog and I like to keep track of what I do for exercise. Whatever the reason, I couldn't help but notice the variety of exercise we fit dogs got while just having fun together.
Greetings: Just saying hello can be good fit dog exercise... especially for the smaller dog! I'm kidding, of course. All dog greetings use a variety of body positions that are great fit dog conditioning.
Wrestling: To the untrained eye it might look like dogs only exercise our jaws when wrestling. But we actually gain a lot of flexibility, agility, core strength and balance when wrestling.
