Your Furry Best Friend Can Help You Keep Your Fitness Resolutions!

Dogs and exercise It's the New Year, which means most people are setting goals for themselves as a recharge and starting over point for fitness and health. It has been proven that working out with a partner is more likely to hold you accountable and motivated while attempting to achieve your goals. I have found that my dog is the absolute best workout partner ever, he doesn't complain, never cancels on me, never judges me, protects me, and is there rain or shine and ready to tackle whatever workout I decide to do. I have included a few workouts that you can do with your dog anywhere and anytime, just make sure to bring plenty of water for both of you.
  • 1.Workout while walking"”Hopefully, you make time to walk your dog every day. Use this time to get your workout as well. Walk for 5 minuets to warm up. Then start walking lunges (10 each leg), walk for a few minutes to recover and repeat the lunges for a total of three rounds. Have your dog practice his sit/stay while you do 10 calf raises with your heels off the curb for a total of three rounds. Ask your dog to heal and run/jog for 30 seconds then walk to recover. Repeat this for 3 rounds. Next do 3 rounds of high knees, followed by 3 rounds of butt kicks. Finish with some nice stretching. Will your dog look at you like you are crazy? Probably, but it is a good mental workout for them as well. They will be trying to figure out what this new game is.
  • 2.Frisbee Fun "“ Throw a Frisbee as far as you can, then SPRINT with your dog and try to get there before they do (you should be out of breath). Once one of you get it, give your dog a belly rub to say great job and while he rests, you drop and do 10 burpees. Repeat this series 5 times.
  • 3.Fetch circuit "“ set up 4 cones in a square, separate each cone about 25-50 feet. Throw a ball to the first cone, you and your dog run to that cone, allow your dog to rest while you do 25 push ups, then take the ball and throw to the 2nd cone -- run to get it and do 30 fast squats, then throw to the third cone--- run and do 50 jumping jacks, lastly throw to the fourth cone--- run and do 40 full sit-ups. (repeat 2 times)
  • 4.Dogs are great for cardio-- running, biking and some even swimming. Make sure to bring plenty of water along with you and take breaks if you realize your buddy is starting to pant too much or is slowing down. They will look forward to your new workout/play sessions, which will help to keep you motivated.
Happy New Year to you all and hope you enjoy a fun and quick workout with "Man's Best Friend"! Now get out there and get moving!

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
