Fit Dog Fit Nation Day is Sunday, May 2nd, 2010 . Celebrate by taking your dog for a walk, a run, or some tail-wagging time in the sun.
Healthy dogs are happy pets and regular exercise is key to every fitness plan.
Exercise is so important for our four-legged friends that “Pets and People — Healthy Together” is the theme of this year’s National Pet week, May 2-8, 2010, jointly founded by the American Veterinary Medical Association (Schaumburg, Ill.) and the Auxiliary to the AVMA, to promote responsible pet ownership, celebrate the human-animal bond, and promote public awareness of veterinary medicine.
Dogs are great workout partners. Studies show that our exercise programs are more successful when we take our dogs along.
For dogs, more time with you means less time home alone. Animal behavior experts agree that active dogs are less likely to become behavior problems.
Excess weight is a health hazard for all of us. Pudgy pets are at increased risk for osteoarthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and dental problems. They don’t live as long as their lean friends, either.
Fit Dog Fit Nation Day is one day to focus attention on the importance of fitness for our furry friends, but we invite you to put your dog’s health on your calendar every day.

On May 2 2010, On The Ball K9 Training will kick off Fit Dog Fit Nation Day with our pack walk!
This months walk will be at South Lakes Park in Denton TX at 9:30am.
We invite previous, current and prospective clients to join our organized pack walk. This is not designed to be a meet and greet for all dogs present, as some will be further along on their rehabilitation process than others, but more of a fun way to exercise our dogs as a pack and get to know other owners who share common goals and training methods.
This pack walk is open to all dogs. With that being said, you should approach every dog/owner with that in mind, so use common courtesy and manners. All owners/handlers are responsible for the actions of their own dogs at all times. All dogs should be leashed at all times. No exceptions. This is NOT a training class.
Get out, get fit and have some fun with your dog. Meet new people & other dog lovers
