Show Notes

Is your senior dog sleeping the day away? Are you noticing “brain fog?” Have you given up on their ability to engage in family activities? Remember that aging is not a disease! You can help!! Listen along as Lisa Schmitt discusses fitness training with our seniors. Although there are certainly safety and health considerations, our older canines will benefit in mind, body, and soul from the attention and activity of fitness. A few minutes a day with your aging pet will enhance their strength, balance, flexibility, and cognition! Learn some specific tips and tricks of what you can do to keep your pet moving, enhance their quality of life, and optimize their function as they move into their golden years.
