Living a healthier life is important, and people with pets have an advantage. Pet owners tend to live longer due to the reduction in stress hormone cortisol, according to a study at University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. As the owner of two dogs, I have created Paws-ilates™. It blends spine-strengthening exercises, core toners and some simple lifts with Fido, or in my case, Wrigley, to help you stand taller and spend time with your dog. Here are a few simple exercises I can recommend with dogs 25 pounds or less.
Paws-ilates is a program for people and pets to enjoy. Pilates core moves and gentle pet massage create a special time to reconnect, decompress and do something great for yourself as well as your pet.
