Working Out With Your Dog – Thank Dog Boot Camp

New programs are popping up all over the US and Canada where you can exercise with your canine companion. Thank Dog Boot Camp is a program where both human and animal can benefit.

Their website states

We are The Original indoor/outdoor fitness program that combines dog training, weight training, cardio training, and nutrition training for dogs and their people.  A one-stop fitness program, everything gets done in an hour ( saving time and money) and nobody is left behind (or at home in this case)!

Here’s a video from CNN that features a golden retriever:

Gary Meets The Dog Whisperer

Jimmy Fallon’s new golden retriever puppy, a female he named “Gary” has become quite the celebrity pooch. She made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night with Cesar Millan where Jimmy got some pointers on calming her down. Everyone is falling in love with her and hopefully Jimmy will keep us up to date as she grows up and maybe even have her as a regular guest.

Gary even got a huge bone from Cesar for being a good girl.  Last night Fallon tweeted@cesarmillan gave my dog a treat. It’s bigger than her!!!”

Product “Fail” Sport Trainer endorsed by Cesar Millan

Tucker got a few new toys yesterday as he has outgrown his “puppy” toys.  One of the items we purchased was called a “Sport Trainer” from Cesar Millan’s product line.

As you can see, its a football shaped toy with a ribbon type handle attached.  Nowhere on the packaging does it suggest what type of “sport” you are supposed to play with this thing.  I also checked Cesar’s website, no sign of this toy.

Needless to say, the “handle” was gone within minutes.  Other reviews I have read also complain that this toy only lasted one day.  The football itself was still intact today, and Tucker carries it around like a teddy bear, but I fear it is only a matter of time before I am picking up the stuffing from all over the house.

Dear Cesar, please take some consideration in the products you put your name on…

Has anyone else made the mistake of purchasing one of these “dog toys”?  I can’t even imagine this thing holding up with a small dog.  If the handle isn’t for “tugging” what is it for??  Anyone?
