Fitness and Weight Loss Camp Will Keep Dogs Moving With Water Aerobics, Treadmill Trots, Nature Hikes, Doggie Sports, “Doga,” “Pawlates,” and More During the Week-Long Program June 16 – June 20
While fitness and weight loss camps are popular for people hoping to trim down and get healthy during the summer months, Morris Animal Inn wants to provide the same opportunity for our four-legged best friends. Pet obesity is on the rise in the U.S., and the luxury pet spa and resort is offering Canine Cardio Fitness Camp to help dogs get fit, lose weight and jump-start a healthier lifestyle.
More than half of all dogs and cats in the U.S. are considered overweight or obese, according to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention. An estimated 43 million dogs tip the scales as overweight or obese, a condition that can negatively impact canine health.
Morris Animal Inn is offering Canine Cardio Fitness Camp from June 16 – June 20 at the country getaway destination for dogs and cats. The day or overnight program is designed to keep dogs active, stimulated and stress-free with treadmill trots, aerobic swim sessions in the indoor pool, outdoor water games, nature trail hikes, “Doga” and “Pawlates,” pampering massages, nutritious and refreshing homemade treats, and more.
“Canine Cardio Summer Camp is great for dogs who want to get or stay fit while having fun with their canine friends or personal fitness trainers,” said Joanne Morris, vice president of Morris Animal Inn. “Keeping dogs active and mentally stimulated is so important for their good health, and summer is a great time to start a new exercise regimen because everyone is spending more time outdoors.”
Program offerings will be individually tailored to meet the particular needs of each dog, with some sessions overseen by a personal trainer and others offered in a group setting. Registration is flexible so that dogs can attend for a single day or be immersed in the week-long program.
Morris Animal Inn recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion. The state-of-the-art facility has doubled in size and offers a heated indoor pool, whirlpool, pet suites with soothing music and videos, skylights, indoor and outdoor play areas, pampering and activities packages, daily maid and room service, Happy Hour with homemade pet treats, tuck-in service and more.
Located on a quiet country lane with over 12 acres, the new facility was designed to provide for both the comfort and safety of all pet guests. Morris Animal Inn is climate-controlled with purified air, smoke and sprinkler systems, back-up generators, 24-hour surveillance cameras and the capability for daily floor-to-ceiling sanitizing for the cleanest environment. Perimeter fencing encloses the facility.
