Have you ever wondered how the famous pups keep their furry bodies so toned? They all go to the gym for their treadmill and yoga workouts of course! Yup, the latest in workouts for your pup is not walking, running or even swimming … it’s Doga. Doga is a specific form of pup-parent and pup coordinated moves designed to relax, stretch and work specific muscles in conjunction with your pup. These classes are in nearly every city now, but you may have to get on a wait list. If your interested try our local Doga locations at Barking Buddha Doga in Seattle/ www.dogyoga.blogspot.com/ or Westside Yoga | Doga www.westsideyogadoga.com also located in Seattle.
Once you get into your Doga a class you are going to need a mat, not a pee mat; although your fellow patrons would appreciate that too, but a soft work mat to conduct your poses on. Check out the fun paw prints from www.Yogarat.com (images in picture above). They will cost you approximately $29.99 plus tax and shipping, but you’ll be the envy of your fellow pups.
In addition to a mat your furry friend is going to need some gym worthy clothing, so they can look to part and fit in. Try these fun muscle t-shirts from Golds Gym available through www.clothes4dog.com in red, blue, black and yellow for $15.00 each, also available in a sweatshirt.
No workout is complete if you can’t track your heart-rate. To keep your pup’s progress in check take a look at these fun and functional Dog Pedometers available. These fun little charm like attachments help you monitor you pups heart rate so you know just how hard they are working.
