Working out with your dog

If you’re like me, some days you just don’t want to go to the gym. However working out from home means the dog wants to join in too. I’ve found a few moves that I throw into my at home workouts that mean my puppy gets playtime too.

Plank tug of war is my dogs favourite. he brings his favourite toy and he can spend minutes at a time playing tug of war. The plus side for me is that it is a burner of a core workout as you’re having to work extra hard to maintain stability.

My dog personally loves to be held and cuddled so puppy weighted squats is a fantastic. He enjoys getting cuddle time and I enjoy getting to work my lower body. The heavier the dog, the stronger you are.

The cuddle aspect of my puppy also work great for my upper body. I sit him on my knee while I do tricep dips. Having weaker triceps this is an absolute burner. But both me and him love it.

The simplest way to exercise with your dog is to simply take them out for a walk or run. Not only is this a good way of increasing cardiovascular health it is also a great way to get your daily dose of vitamin D.

Exercise is important for not only you but also your puppy. So why not kill two birds with one stone and exercise together. Not only is it good for you but it is fun, its like having a mini fluffy work
