A Far More Wordy Response
Pant & Wag (PAW) was born out of the simple realization that dogs are not getting enough exercise. This lack of true aerobic fitness is a leading cause of the canine obesity epidemic. It is estimated between 40-50% of all dogs in the US are overweight. Fat dogs are more at risk in surgery, more prone to injury, and have more stress on heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and joints. Excess weight can worsen osteoarthritis and dysplasia, cause respiratory problems, lead to diabetes mellitis and cancer, and generally lessen the quality of life for your best friend.
Dogs at a healthy weight also benefit tremendously from Pant & Wag Fitness Adventures. By including a customized and fun exercise plan in your dog's life, you can help keep him healthy, happy, and well balanced while freeing up a little bit of time for your own life.
All dogs need exercise. The amount and type of exercise needed varies for each dog, that is why it is so important to develop a custom workout plan just for your unique friend. While dog daycare, dog runners, and dog walkers use a 'cookie-cutter' approach and treat all dogs the same, Pant & Wag exercise programs are developed exclusively for your dog. Our program goes far beyond just running and walking; our canine fitness training utilizes a true cross-training approach to maximize your dog's fitness level and keep him mentally stimulated.
Pant & Wag Fitness Adventures have been featured in national and local DC media including The Washington Post (dog running), the Washingtonian Magazine (dog weight loss), ABC 7 News, and more.
Boring dog walkers and unstructured doggy daycare can't compete with our exciting excursions which allow us to constantly keep your furry friend physically and mentally challenged so he can achieve the optimal levels of health and happiness.
