Make Your Pooch Your Exercise Partner
* Don't be a bench warmer at the dog run. Man's best friend happens to make a perfect exercise partner and likes to do more than just play fetch.
* Set up an agility obstacle course with cones and jumps, take a swim at the beach, climb stairs or run bleachers.
* If you walk with your furry friend for 30 minutes a day you'll torch 200-350 calories, and breathing fresh, outdoor air will put an extra bounce in your step.
* Being active with your canine companion will improve the quality of life for both of you. With all that fun, you will add years to your lives and friends fur-ever!
