Why Your Dog is Your Best Workout Partner #Agility #Giveaway

Last week we got the chance to chat with celebrity fitness trainer Gunnar Peterson, an animal lover and Beverly Hills-based personal trainer who helps his clients look and feel great! While Gunnar's clients typically are of the two-legged variety, he shared some great tips with us on ways to work out with your pup!

Learn about Gunnar's tips in the video below and then be sure to read all the way down for a fantastic fitness giveaway that both you and your pet are sure to love!


To help you get both your and your pup's fitness goals on track, we have a great giveaway today courtesy of Petco

You may already know how much we love training for and competing in agility and so we've been eyeing the Kyjen Agility Kit for quite some time. We got our agility kit this week and now you have the chance to win your own via our Rafflecopter giveaway below!

Rocco gives the Kyjen tunnel a try. I think he loves it!   
The kit comes with six weave poles, a jump, an open tunnel and a pause box. They're a little different from regulation agility obstacles, but they are perfect for playing with your pup and seeing if they like the sport of agility. 

You'll also get a lot of extras in the kit to help make the game even more fun, including a start/finish line, stop watch, award ribbons, instructions, game rules and stakes for securing obstacles into the ground. All you need to add is a grassy area and a willing pup and human!

Our neighbor pups all seem to want to try agility, so now we can have an agility play day in our own backyard! 

Enter to win a Kyjen Agility Kit

Enter via Rafflecopter below to win a Kyjen Agility Kit from Petco.  Giveaway is open until June 20 at 12 a.m. ET. U.S. only.

  2. We started playing with agility this year and both dogs have really done well with it. The kit would be great to have at home so we could do it ever day!

  3. The agility classes near us aren't at a convenient time so this would be great for doing some training on our own!

  4. We are over the pond so no worries and we do agility by plenty of vermin hunting. We love it. Enjoy your agility. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. I love agility and am missing it a LOT lately - my current "crew" of dogs are "retired" from agility competition. But we still like to play at home, so having this set would be fun!

  7. I want to do agility with my dog because we tried it at an event and Artie liked it. He turned around, went back thru the tunnel and then back again.

  8. Hi Rocco!

    I'd like to win the agility set so we can do agility at home since we don't take agility classes anymore. It would be a fun addition to our training routine - and a fun way to get more exercise.

  13. I would love for mom to set this up in our yard and practice some agility with me. My sister has no interest in it, but I sure would and I am small enough to fit too! Cross my paws that I win!

  14. I think my Boxer Loki and I could both use the extra exercise and I think it would be extreamly fun for the both of us!

  20. I think Barkly might be a great fit for agility. His Corgi-energy is unbelievable, and I'm always looking for new things to run it off!
