Be active, have fun, enjoy quality time with your favorite furry friend! These are the best workouts to do with your dog to help you both get healthier, with Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND.
There are so many ways to be active – why not bring your dog along?
Spending time with your dog has its benefits – being more active is just one of many. Whether your dog is young or old, they still need exercise! They’re just like us – as they age, it’s even more important to keep their body AND mind healthy. Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND formulas provide nutrition for your dog’s body and contain brain-supporting nutrition for cognitive health. Pair Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND with regular exercise and mental stimulation to help your dog stay healthy and happy!
Regular exercise with your canine companion can be done in so many ways, so we’ve listed our favorites here! We guarantee that you’ll not only get a great workout, but you’ll also have an absolute blast with your favorite pup.
If you’ve ever seen a dog agility competition, you can understand how this would be a great workout. Not only does it challenge your cardio and speed, but it also requires some mental action as well. You can’t just go through the motions with these drills. You have to focus and pay attention to the course – that’s why it’s first on our list! And don’t worry – you don’t need a lot of fancy equipment for this. Set up some small, makeshift hurdles and an agility ladder for yourself. Your dog will gladly follow your lead!
I’ve never met a Fido who doesn’t love fetch. It’s obviously a great workout for them – let’s make it a great workout for you, too! Throw the ball as far as you can, then race your dog to see who gets there first. Do this 20 times and you’ll both be sweaty and spent!
Dog-Friendly Boot Camps
Yes, you heard right – more and more dog-friendly boot camps are popping up around the country so that you and your dog can get a great workout! Many of these boot camps combine fitness and obedience training, so you can teach an old dog new tricks! We love combining a mental workout with a physical one. So we were excited to learn that Purina Pro Plan has partnered with Dognition and starting this month, consumers that purchase a specially-marked bag of Purina® Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND® dry dog food will receive an exclusive access code for a FREE Dognition® Assessment, a $19 value. Dognition allows dog owners to learn more about their dog’s cognitive skills and unleash their dog’s inner genius. Paired with the breakthrough innovation in Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND formulas, these tools help dog owners gain a better understanding of dog cognition and the important role nutrition plays in dog brain health.
Of course we have to include running! It’s the most common and easy exercise to do with your dog, requiring nothing but the open road and a leash. More and more dog-friendly trails are popping up, but you don’t even need to leave your own neighborhood to enjoy a great run! Wave to your neighbors, enjoy the fresh air and have a great run with your dog.
Being healthy (for you and your dog) goes well beyond physical exercise. Feed your minds and your bodies with proper nutrition! For you, that means foods found in nature, healthy fats and plenty of veggies. For your dog, that means Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND, formulated specifically to support cognitive health.
