Hey Tripawds Fans!

Anypawdy else out there feel like they ate a few too many cookies? Well here’s the fun workout I did Christmas morning to work off the big bone I got

I thought we were just going for our usual walk. But my people found a fitness course where we are staying, and started having me use all the obstacles for some fun training before opening up the rest of my presents.

I’ve been doing conditioning exercises like this for a while on my FitPAWS gear, so I make it look easy. But you can do it too! Just be sure to do some warm up exercises first, and work your way up to the more difficult stuff.

Hopping from one step to another builds confidence and leg strength. Going up and down the steps first was a good cardio workout too!

Balancing on my FitBone is one thing. These little posts were a challenge! But I showed them I could do it.

This type of balancing is great for developing proprioception and building core strength. Look ma, one paw!

Next they had me walk the balance beam. Sort of…I hopped up and along some benches first.

But then I scooted down these really narrow beams with both my front paws. That counts right?

All this stuff helps me keep fit and strong—because a healthy tripawd, is a happy tripawd!
