January 2011 Press Release

DOGTREAD® INTRODUCES VIRTUAL DOG EVENTS – WE PROVIDE THE MOTIVATION, YOU PROVIDE THE LOCATION™

Get Your Wag On with Dog-friendly Events Planned By DogTread®, Run By You and Your Furry Friend

OGDEN, Utah (January 24, 2011) –The first annual DogTread® Virtual Events Series kicks off on February 6, 2011 with the Superbowl Sunday – Game Day Walk (or Run). A Calendar of Events with corresponding registration information and race details for each event will be posted on the company’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/DogTread, and the event will take place in the location preferred by each competing individual and his or her dog(s).

Participation is open to everyone. The goal is to provide motivation to help people get out with their dogs, and a community to share progress and answer questions. Some events will consist of walks, while others will require more training. For longer events, DogTread® will provide Event Kits with the tools and plan to get people and their dogs event-ready.

 How to Play Our First Event – The DogTread® Game Day Walk for Fitness:

1. Go to our www.facebook.com/DogTread  page and click “Like”.

2. Post a status note that says:  I’m in on the Dog Tread Super Bowl Game Day Walk for Fitness — on game day, (before the game is best!)

3. Walk for 30 minutes with your dog (you pick the location!)

4. Post a note on the www.facebook.com/DogTread page that says:  I completed 30 minutes of exercise with my dog on game day.

 A recent twelve-month study has shown that exercising with your dog has numerous positive benefits for people and dogs. The Pets and People Exercising Study (PPET) found that people who are trying to lose weight often need a positive support system of friends, co-workers and relatives.  Unfortunately, these same people can also negatively affect an individual’s exercise plan.  Exercising with your dog however, brings fun and enthusiasm not seen in other programs.
