Obesity is considered the number one killer of dogs in America, and the Dogington Post is a popular venue that can advocate health and wellness to thousands of dog owners.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
The world watched as athletes geared up to compete in the 2012 Olympic Games in London starting this month. Meanwhile, Dogington Post focused its efforts on promoting pet fitness. The online dog news source launched a campaign that will use Olympic athletes at the center of their efforts to promote better fitness for readers and their dogs.
“We are very excited about this new dog fitness initiative,” said Dogington Post’s ‘Top Dog’, Harlan Kilstein. “Pet parents continue to seek ways to improve the lives of their dogs. Obesity is considered the number one killer of dogs in America, and the Dogington Post is a popular venue that can advocate health and wellness to thousands of dog owners. The need for pet fitness is so great that it needs to be promoted on a large scale.”
While the 2012 Olympics start on July 27, the world’s focus on Olympic athletes aligns with the publication’s promotion of exercise and fitness for dogs. This latest initiative is designed to encourage dog owners to follow the lead of several of America’s Olympians and get fit with their dogs. Dogington Post featured highlights of athletes and their pets in hopes that they would be an effective example and encourage readers to focus on fitness to prolong the lives of their four-legged family members.
The site published stories of several Olympic athletes and their pets, including Michael Phelps, 14-time gold medalist swimmer, who is teaching his newly adopted dog Stella how to swim and Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist Misty May-Treanor who promotes exercising with pets by running with her dogs.
Dogington Post also gave readers tips on how to include their dogs in a workout; the effect of obesity on a dog’s health; how to tell if a dog is overweight; ideas for exercising an overweight dog; and even a piece on Dog Yoga.
