Fit Dog Fit Nation

BlackBerry10.5.09-073Join Good Dog Camp 10 am Sunday May 2 at Quarry Hill for Fit Dog Fit Nation Day.

This is the kick-off to ‘Pets and People–Healthy Together’ themed National Pet week May 2-8, 2010, jointly founded by the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Auxiliary to the AVMA to promote responsible pet owenership, celebrate the human-animal bond, and promote public awareness of veterinary medicine.

We are going to celebrate Fit Dog Fit Nation Day on May 2 by taking a hike at Quarry Hill.  We will meet at the Quarry Hill Nature Center parking lot at 10am for this free event.  This is a great opportunity  for us to spend some time with our dogs, get some exercise and help create happier healthier pets.

While this event is free and open to anyone with a dog, please follow park rules by keeping your dog on leash and picking up after them.

Here are more reasons to join us:

  • Dogs are great workout partners.  Studies show that our exercise programs are more successful when we take our dogs along.
  • For dogs, more time with you means less time home alone. Animal behavior experts agree that active dogs are less likely to become behavior problems.
  • Pudgy pets are at increased risk for osteoarthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and dental problems. They don’t live as long as their lean friends, either.

003-(4)Fit Dog Fit Nation Day is one day to focus attention on the importance of fitness for our furry friends, but we invite you to put your dog’s health on your calendar every day.
