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. Mannered Mutts Dog Training is a proud member of the A.K.C. Fit Dog Club. Join us for our walks. Check out our Facebook page for all of our upcoming dog walks.
