This month many of the dog blogs are participating in Park Day challenges, and the get fit Friday blog hop. The hope is that more and more people will choose to get up, get outside and get active with their dogs. A sedentary lifestyle is not good for humans or for canines, so by taking a walk or hike, you are helping both yourself and your best friend. In keeping with this idea, the collies have put their heads together and created a Fit Dog Challenge. To participate in the challenge, all you have to do is complete at least 10 of the 15 activities listed below. The challenge starts today, and you have until June 15th to complete the activities. Once you and your dog have finished the challenge, write a post, including pictures, and let us know what activities you did. It’s that easy to play, so grab the award, and post it to your blog once you have completed the Fit Dog Challenge. Happy Trails!
