The Dieting with my Dog Guide: Inspiration to Get Active with Your Dog!

For today's edition of FitDog Friday I'm so excited to tell you about the new book that just came out by our FitDog co-host Peggy Frezon at Peggy's Pet Place!

I got my copy of The Dieting with my Dog Guide to Weight Loss and Maintenancethis week, and it's filled with tips on healthy eating and lots of fun activities and exercises you can do with your dog.

It's not just about weight loss, so don't let the title fool you. There are plenty of activity ideas and great photos too, that will inspire you to get out and get active with your dog!

Rocco gave the book a little taste test, below, and when he realized it wasn't edible, he looked for his next fun activity!


Lot of our blog pals are included in the book, offering up great information on everything from swimming to snow shoeing and other fun exercises you can do with your dog too.

We even have a little feature in the book about how to get started in dog agility.

The official book launch is Sept. 9, but you can get the book now on Amazon. For the launch, Peggy will be hosting a contest with a great prize basket, so keep an eye out for that as well as the Fun and Furry, Fit and Healthy Book/Blog Tour Sept. 9-30.

In other news, we're also featured this week in the PetCareRx community in their "Ask the Expert" section! Through Aug. 31, I'm answering questions about how to get active with your pet. And if you ask a question on this section of the community page by Aug. 31, you'll get entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Kong Flyer.


The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and Peggy's Pet Place to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!) and to help combat pet obesity. Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the Hop.
