Make It A Firm Resolution
Set achievable and sustainable activity goals for yourself and your pet. Commit to daily physical activity.
When you’ve reached a plateau or are stagnant with your current fitness plan, break through by doing something new. Take your dog for a long walk around your neighborhood. Choose a more challenging hiking trail. Also, don’t be afraid to get your feet – or paws – wet and go for a swim.
Pet exercise routines aren’t just for dogs. If you have a corpulent kitten, create an indoor activity program using a laser pointer or feather toy to encourage your cat to burn more calories.
Also raise the food bowl to a height that requires jumping or climbing to reach a meal. Divide your cat’s feed, regularly feed large individual servings, then hide the parts around the house or throw them a distance that will encourage movement.
Before starting any exercise program with your cat or dog, you should get a veterinary examination to order ensure your pet is healthy enough to be physically active.
