Dogs are known as “human’s best friends” for a reason…

  • Dogs can make you happier
  • Dogs can make you healthier
  • Dogs can keep you safer

You and your dog love to share everything!

  • Fun adventures together
  • Meeting new friends
  • Exploring new places
  • Cuddle time at home
  • Yummy snacks + meals

Did you know that walking your dog is one of the major benefits of owning a dog?

When you hear the term, taking your dog for a walk, of course we know your pup needs to go for potty breaks. But taking your dog for a walk has so many other benefits. Your dog is an instant fitness motivator - your cute furry pal waiting patiently at the door with such exuberance is your in-home coach reminding you to get off the couch and put on your running shoes!

According to the American Heart Association, people who walk their dogs are more likely to get the recommended amount of physical activity than those who don’t - studies show up to 30 minutes more exercise a day being a dog-walker!

Our pups help relieve stress and anxiety. Living with a pet provides constant companionship, love and affection. Our lives can be hectic and busy and with the holiday season soon approaching please remember to take some time daily to relax and rejuvenate. Every time you pet your dog and give them hugs, you will enjoy the benefit of a live-in stress reliever!

Don’t wait for December 31st to make your “new years resolutions” - get started today!! Your dog is ready, willing and able to help you meet your fitness and wellness goals for a healthy and active lifestyle incorporating healthy mind and body!!

PS: all of these great benefits that you receive from your dog - they receive back from you! We want our dogs to be healthy and happy and this mutual benefit is a wonderful gift.
