Fit Dog Friday

Fitness is very important.  Since I have had a few years of surgeries that have limited my activity, whenever I am released by my doctor for exercise, I’m all in!  The dogs need their exercise, too, especially since when they are showing they need to be in top physical condition.

Some of the activities we enjoy are:

Hiking
ramawaterc
Swimming

Leisure walking downtown

Because we live in Florida and it is warm year round, we always make sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, first aid kit, poo bags, collapsible water bowls and did I say water?  It is very important to stay hydrated while out there with your dog.  It is also a good idea to bring cool coats if you are in a climate such as ours here in the South.  The dogs have their own packs and carry their own water, snacks, etc.

Soon we will be doing a post dedicated to outdoor activities with your dogs.  What types of things do you look forward to doing with your four-legged friends this summer?

Bella flashes a big smile. She gets very excited when the backpacks come out.

    Welcome to the Hop! Glad you joined us. It sounds like you’ve got your walking routine down pat. That’s great – and those big guys (and gals) need a lot of exercise I bet. Anxious to hear more about how you keep them fit.

    It is great to see Bella with a backpack on. My dogs used to carry their own packs and then we lost to many in the woods. Maybe they were just ditching them because they knew I would carry their gear for them. Look forward to seeing the upcoming post.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. 🙂 Haha, perhaps you’re right about them ditching their packs, lol!
