Feeling good while doing good…
This morning, I pledged to walk Cooper 150 miles over the next three months as part of Greenies’ Wag & Walk 4 Life program, a program designed to get pet owners and pets active on a regular basis.
The benefits of getting out and walking with your pet include 120+ calories burned for each 30 minutes of dog walking, lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels in dog owners, stronger bones, leaner muscles, and healthier joints for both pet and pet owner.
The best part about the program – other than the bonding time with your pup, of course – is that Greenies teamed up with Freedom Service Dogs (FSD), a Denver-based nonprofit organization that provides canine helpers to military veterans and others with physical or psychological disabilities.
Take the pledge on the brand’s Facebook fan page. Share in the comments how many miles you’re pledging with your dog, and we can help keep each other motivated.
So far we’ve put 1.75 miles on the board… We have a ways to go, but I have high hopes that 150 miles will keep Cooper nice and tired!
