April is Canine Fitness Month

April is Canine Fitness Month
April is Canine Fitness Month

Winter is coming to an end and the days are getting longer once again. As the weather warms, your dog is likely anxious to spend more time outdoors. April is Canine Fitness Month, too, so if you and your pet are ready to get off the couch and start moving, we are happy to help motivate you.

Fitness is important for your dog at every stage of life. As dog owners, you must ensure that not only are they eating right, but they are engaging in the right amount of mental and physical activity. How old is your dog now? Are they exercising properly for their ages?

Puppy Fitness

Puppies expend a lot of energy! While it may seem as though your puppy wants to play 24/7, these little dogs do require rest and it is possible to overdo it. It’s a crucial stage because your puppy is growing every day and you should be aware of their limitations at play. 

Be mindful of the surfaces where your puppies run, because their paws are still developing and will be soft and sensitive. Play games that sharpen mental acuity as well as physical agility, like puzzle toys or a tug rope. Above all else, let them rest when they need it.

Adult Dog Fitness 

Weight gain can cause problems for your dog at the adult stage. Depending on your dog’s breed, and advice from your veterinarian, you may need to make changes in diet to help with weight loss. Treats, while used to reward good behavior, should be limited. As for exercise, the American Kennel Club recommends starting slowly with an overweight dog and working up to longer and more vigorous exercise as they adjust.

When taking your dog on lengthy walks and runs, look for soft surfaces like natural jogging trails, the beach, or grassy parks. This will put less stress on your dog’s feet and legs and help with endurance.

Feed your dog Fromm Gold Weight Management Adult Dog Food for your dog’s health. Slow feeders like the KONG Bamboo Feeder Ball help your pet manage their treat intake.

Senior Dog Fitness 

As your dog ages, they will naturally slow down and experience decreased agility. While regular walking and a good diet can aid in continued health through the golden years, the AKC recommends specific exercises designed to improve your dog’s rear leg strength and footing. Repetitive standing and sitting exercises, not unlike doggie yoga, can tone those back muscles and help your older dog maintain good posture and balance.

Your veterinarian can advise you more on how to keep your dog happy and healthy at any age. Care-A-Lot Pet Supply also has everything you need for your dog’s health – nutritious food, vitamins and supplements, and exercise toys. Shop our online catalog today or visit our four stores in Hampton Roads and Moyock.
