Meetup with Old Pals and New at #BarkWorld!

Lots of folks from the original #PetChat crew, Monday nights at 8 p.m.
Last weekend we had a terrific time catching up with old pals and meeting new ones at BarkWorld Expo in Atlanta.

The only thing was it all went by just too fast!

We hung out with some of the original #Petchat crew, pictured above. Back in the early days of Twitter, many of our first anipals participated in the regular Monday night chat starting at 8 p.m., and it's still going on today.

We also got the chance to meet the fabulously talented Susan from Talent Hounds, and a regular contributor to Fit Dog Friday. We only wish we lived closer so we could hang out, make videos and train dogs every day!

Take a look at the super cute video Susan and her crew put together for us!

We had this equipment on hand for the K9 Fit Club session we led. We had lots of fun in that session and the activity got everyone off to a good start on their day!

Jason and Koda from The OK Dog Blog participated in our K9 Fit Club workout, and here Koda is trying his paw at the Fit Paws Donut (the same one Rocco was balancing on in the video above).

Thanks to Jason, Jessica and Koda for providing the photo above and for the short video below!

If the Instagram video doesn't load, you can watch it here.  We played lots of fun games and got in some good cardio, core, and overall body work for the humans, too!

Thanks to Rachel from His Muddy Paw Prints from sending us the photo, below. It was so fun to meet Rachel and Dobby in person after getting to know them through our blogs!

Rachel and Dobby perfect the wall sit challenge!
I didn't get any photos of my own, so if anyone else has some from this session, please send them my way and I'll post them here!

This weekend we're heading to another agility trial. What are your plans?

The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and My GBGV Life to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the Hop.


  1. We heard about this from others that were there. What a fun get together with a bit of fitness!

    1. It was fun! So glad we got to hold the mini K9 Fit Club session!

  2. Looks like fun! I've been debating taking a fitbone class.

    1. It is fun for both humans and dogs, and it's a good way to mix it up a bit with other exercise you may be getting.

  3. Hi Y'all!

    Looks like a great and fun time was had by all! Too bad my Humans had appointments and couldn't make it...I would have loved to meet all y'all!

    Y'all come by now,
