Walking the dog to health

Have your say

You don’t have to enter the Kennel Club’s annual Get Fit with Fido contest to reap the health rewards of taking the dog out for regular exercise in the fresh air, but it may help you to keep your resolutions.

Enter the contest and if you and your dog jointly lose the most weight, or one of you individually sheds most pounds by the deadline July 15, you stand to win a range of prizes including a makeover and photo shoot, tickets to Crufts and a £100 discount voucher.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “Get Fit With Fido was set up to inspire dog owners to find new and different ways to get fit with their dog. Walking your dog or taking up dog sports like agility can really help improve fitness and is a lot more fun than going to the gym.”
