After agility class last night, I was getting my post-workout massage and doing my stretches and I thought "I should share my stretching techniques and favorite massages in my Fit Dog Friday blog post." So, here I am, letting all the Fit Dog Friday blog hoppers know that fit dogs need stretches and massages just like fit humans do. I enjoy stretches, range of motion exercises and massages before and after every long walk, run and agility workout. Have you ever seen trainers stretching and massaging athletes before a game? It's kind of like that only my I'm a wiener dog athlete.
In conclusion, being a fit dog isn't just about eating right and exercising. To ensure a lifetime of fitness fun, giving your dog a good old fashioned once over after each work out is not only essential to a dogs health and happiness but a great experience for your dog and you too. In fact, you and your dog will probably so enjoy your post fitness stretching and massage time, you'll make it a twice over!
