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.
To promote health and fitness for dogs and their owners, AKC FIT DOG clubs will:
- Conduct at least 4 group fitness walks per year, or
- Conduct regularly scheduled canine fitness/conditioning classes.
In the fitness walks and classes, dogs and owners may participate at their own individual skill level.
Canine fitness/conditioning classes are held on Monday mornings at 9:00AM. We also conduct group outings/walks. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 501-827-5570 to sign up! Membership is ONLY $20/annually!
