If you’re anything like us, you treat your dog as an equal member of the family. If it was acceptable to sit him or her at the dinner table, you would! A family dog provides endless entertainment and joy, so why not treat them with the same love that you treat the rest of your family? You can start by making sure they are getting enough exercise and treating them to as close to a whole food diet as possible.
Last year I talked the Executive Director of CYCLE Kids into purchasing a FitBit. I was in a heated “step” competition with family and friends, and wanted to see how Julie’s active lifestyle measured up. She bought one right away and came into the office the next week… “Puck has been walking 10,000 steps a day!” Puck is her Bernese Mountain Dog.
