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

By 4Knines Staff. | Activities for Your Dog Dog Info
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!

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Split rear seat cover (no hammock) and Split cargo liner

I just purchased these items to use in an Infiniti QX30. The small cargo liner fits well with lots to tuck underneath - so good coverage if I need to drape it over the bumper for loading camping gear, etc. The regular split seat cover is just a tidge big, but with some tucking here and there it covers the seat well. Good quality and prompt service. I recommend this product.

This product is amazing and so is the company. I was concerned it wouldn't fit my F350 Super Duty crew cab. I emailed them to ask and they responded really quick. I got the cover and it is everything they show it is & more. It fits perfect. I also bought the side covers for the doors in the back.
