Alaska Dog Works announces a new partnership with the American Kennel Club and their AKC Fit Dog Club. Coming this summer we will be promoting health and wellness for owners and their dogs. See below for details. In the mean time you can get started on your own.
Now more than ever, fitness is important for both dogs and people. The most commonly recommended exercise to improve fitness is walking. Walking is considered a safe activity that improves muscular strength, circulation, memory, weight loss, increases energy, helps with sleep, and reduces stress. The American Heart Association recommends walking a minimum of 150 minutes per week. Participation in the AKC FIT DOG program will bring health benefits to both you and your dog.
If you walk with your dog on a regular basis, join the ranks of AKC FIT DOG and get your free (5-3/4 inches) FIT DOG logo car magnet.
The AKC FIT DOG magnet proudly declares to the world that you are committed to your dog’s health and fitness through regular exercise.
Alaska Dog Works has applied to be one of the first AKC Fit Dog Clubs in the Northwest.
To promote health and fitness for dogs and their owners, AKC FIT DOG clubs will:
- Conduct at least four group fitness walks per year, or
- Conduct regularly scheduled canine fitness/conditioning classes.
In the fitness walks and classes, dogs and owners may participate at their own individual skill level.
