Pokemon Go: A Dog Fitness Craze?

Pokemon Go: A Dog Fitness Craze?

dog sees a pokemonEveryone has seen the meme’s of the tired dog laying in the middle of the room exhausted after their Pokemon Go walk with their pet parent.

I say embrace it.

Not only is it great exercise for both of you, but it can be very fun and a great opportunity for training.  Teach your pet pal to sit while you work to get that Pikachu in the ball.  Have them stay while you work your Pokemon out in the Pokemon Gym.  Work on “loose leash” walking so you can react to that sneaky Charizard when it appears.

Bottom line: an exercised dog is a happy dog and Pokemon Go is a great excuse to get out at a local park and work on some of your training goals.  Sammy and I are up to 3 miles a day on our morning Pokemon Go walk!

Work with your dog on a new trick.
