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!

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Well Done!

Bought the seat cover for a rental SUV we were using on a road trip. It worked great. Kept off all the dog hair and our fur baby rolled around on it like crazy. Am going to move it to our everyday SUV. Nicely done!
