|Dr. Arleigh Reynolds speaks to a full house at the Purina|
Better With Pets Summit in NYC late last year
Today, I want to share one of the many talks I found inspirational. This one is fitting for FitDog Friday as speaker Dr. Arleigh Reynolds talks about dogs as the world's best athletes.
Dr. Reynolds, a Purina Physiologist, is also a veterinarian, exercise physiologist and world-champion sprint dog racer.
Here, he tells us about the amazing endurance that dogs demonstrate every day, and how their unique physiology helps them excel in even the most demanding of environments.
Check out this brief one-minute preview, and then when you have time you can watch the full-length (15-minute talk) below. It's a great story and truly inspirational. Dr. Reynolds has a special bond with his dogs, one we can relate to as being part of a performance dog/human team.

Have you formed a special relationship with your dogs by participating in sporting events or physical activities?
