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!

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Very well made

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
