We're serious about canine fitness and health. That’s why we develop custom exercise programs to meet the needs of people like you – caring dog owners who want to ensure their dog gets the daily exercise and attention he needs. Let It’s a Dog’s Life’s Canine Fitness Program become a bright spot in your dog’s day!


OUR CANINE FITNESS PROGRAM
We believe each pet is unique. That’s why our comprehensive canine fitness program, intended for dogs of all breeds and ages, is tailored to suit each of our four legged customers. The program is customized for your dog and based on three key factors – the dog’s abilities, needs and personality.

Ready, Willing, & Able
We want to give your dog a healthy workout, relative to its abilities and needs. Does your dog:

  • Participate in agility competitions? We’ll tailor his workout to exercise those muscles which will make him more competitive.
  • Desperately want to win at Westminster? Her workout might include exercises designed to improve gait.
  • Dive off docks? Let us incorporate swimming into his regular fitness routine.
  • Need some TLC while rehabbing after surgery? We’ll use a low impact workout and incorporate massage to gently get her back in shape.

Our exercise services are perfect for overweight dogs, high-energy dogs, dogs that need more exercise or any dog who wants an active daily walk or run. If your dog is fit, a single session might consist of a five mile run. For dogs that have fallen off the fitness wagon, sessions will make use of interval training to slowly build endurance.


She’s Got Personality
All dogs crave mental and physical challenges but not all dogs crave the same challenges. Our workout activities are based on your dog’s personality and incorporate things she likes to do. If your dog enjoys long walks, she’ll love our hiking regime. Got a pup who likes to hog the ball? She’ll never get tired of playing fetch with us.

We continuously seek ways to keep your canine entertained, motivated and mentally stimulated. Every session will be a new challenge! Some of the activities we may incorporate into your dog’s workout are:

  • Strolls, power walks, or jogs
  • Swimming
  • Frisbees, balls, or other toys
  • Fun games such as dog tag, fetch, and tug-of-war
  • Treadmill

The Finish Line
After each session, your dog will be tired, satisfied and emotionally refreshed. Dogs who regularly exercise with us are noticeably fitter, healthier and better behaved than before enrolling in our program. You can rest assured that your pet is getting the proper amount of exercise and plenty of company while you’re away from home.

Let us tailor a canine fitness program to your dog today!
