Shape Up!

An important part of being a responsible pet owner is making sure your furry friend stays in shape at a healthy weight for their individual needs. Overweight pets are more at risk for health problems such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and arthritis.

Check out Bark & Fitz’s tips for developing a healthier lifestyle for your pet!


  • Check in with your vet! Your vet can recommend a workout plan for your pet and help catch any underlying health concerns that could pose a risk during exercise

  • Build with nutrition! Make sure your pet’s diet covers all of their nutritional requirements and offers enough calories for their individual needs. Don’t hesitate to consult your vet for guidance.

  • Slow down on the snacks! Moderating treats or offering a healthier alternative can help your pet lose some pounds.

TIP: Treats aren’t the only way you can show your pet some love. Extra playtime, or a bonus cuddle go a long way!

  • Start slow! Your pet needs time to build their strength and endurance


Pick the right play! Your dog’s energy levels will differ according to their breed and individual needs.

TIP: High energy breeds needs AT LEAST 60 minutes of exercise every day


Get creative! Encouraging your cat to exercise will require you to think like a cat and bring the wild inside.
