Canine Fitness and Weight Loss Camp at the Morris Animal Inn Pet Resort and Spa helps combat rising obesity in dogs.

Aerobic Swim Sessions Will Help Dogs Lose Weight

'Canine Fitness Camp helps dogs kick off the New Year with a fitness routine that will promote better health with exercise, stimulation and a bit of relaxation,' said Joanne Morris, vice president of Morris Animal Inn.

Losing weight and getting in shape are popular New Year’s resolutions for people and Morris Animal Inn is encouraging pet owners to consider the same health-conscious resolutions for their dogs. At a time when pet obesity is on the rise in the U.S., Morris Animal Inn is offering a weight loss and fitness camp to help jump start a healthy 2014 for dogs.

Morris Animal Inn, a luxury pet spa and resort, is offering “Canine Cardio and Fitness Camp” from January 13 – January 17, 2014. The program is designed to keep dogs active, stimulated, and stress-free with treadmill trots, aerobic swim sessions in the indoor pool, nature hikes, Doga (Yoga for dogs), pampering massages, nutritious homemade treats, and more.

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.

“Canine Fitness Camp helps dogs kick off the New Year with a fitness routine that will promote better health with exercise, stimulation and a bit of relaxation,” said Joanne Morris, vice president of Morris Animal Inn. “If a dog needs to shed some pounds, this is a great way to get started because the dogs are motivated by the fun activities.”

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.

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 facility was designed to provide for 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.
