It must be because I need the most fit dog time of all the Cascadian Nomads that I was chosen to write our post for the first Fit Dog Friday Blog Hop. Now all of us need or fit time, obviously. And we all love it too. But I tend to be the one Blood on the Tracks Boy who is always ready to go. Rain or shine, I want to run! Lucky, lucky me, I do get to run. A lot. And I want to keep it that way.
I do agility twice a week with my nine-year-old friend Rose and sometimes with Bethany at our dog training school. Rose is my very special friend who can't have a dog right now so she gets to handle and care for me sometimes. I love her and her whole family. Oh, and I love agility. I went to my first class when I turned four months old! Hopefully I will be in my first trial this summer.
A couple of weeks ago, I got a Ruffwear Palisade Backpack! I absolutely love my backpack. Even shorter walks make me just a little more tired when I have my backpack on. Plus I get to be useful which is all any old-fashioned collie could ever hope for. I am not carrying much in my backpack now because I am still growing but someday I will carry supplies on long hikes and backpacking trips. That is the kind of goal a dog like me has got to stay in shape and be fit for.
There are SO many reasons for dogs to be in shape. What are your fit dog fitness goals?
