Fitness with Fido, a dog/human exercise workshop

How much serious thought have you given to dog fitness?

NOTE:  This event is no longer occurring

If you’re like many dog enthusiasts, you may believe that your dog is doing just fine managing things for himself, but the fact is that many dogs could benefit from a little active fitness management on the part of their caretakers.

Like their human counterparts, dogs need a fitness regimen to keep them on the path to good health. The key in any dog fitness regimen is you. As the owner, it is up to you to set the routine, find the motivation and get out there and exercise with your dog.

Acme Canine offers a weekly exercise class for dogs and dog owners on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 pm starting September  8, 2010.

Dog/owner teams will be working with personal fitness trainer Stacy Gotti and dog trainer Lisa Lennon.  The class is similar to Thank Dog Boot Camp and the New York dog fitness class.
