In our blogs you will is about finding simplicity in the daily chaos of our lives and finding the clarity to spend the moments with our dogs who teach us to be content with the day as it is, to use what we have to wag about whatever is presented.  To let go of our unwanted habits of yesterday and leave what will happen tomorrow to practicing what we can today, in this very moment.

You’ll find a weekly article on how to create more fitness, more joy, and create more of a lifestyle of content that dogs are more apt at creating naturally through exercise and clarity due to focusing on what is in front of us this very moment in time.  You’ll find sources of inspiration, easy fun workouts, and events you can participate in with your dog all from our base:  The DogTread K9 30 Day Journal and Fitness Guide.

“Treading” for exercise has been popular in certain dog circles for decades and is not a new age training technique, but until the DogTread® was introduced in 2008, the only dog treadmill options available were heavy, overpriced and difficult to use for the average dog owner. Our goal was to help the average dog owner take advantage of a technique that dog professionals have used for years, right in the comfort of their own home.
