Morris Animal Inn is encouraging pet owners to help their pets get in shape in 2014 by offering a weight loss and fitness camp for dogs. The luxury pet spa and resort is offering Canine Cardio and Fitness Camp from January 13-17.
The program is designed to keep dogs active, stimulated and stress-free, with treadmill trots, aerobic swim sessions in the indoor pool, nature hikes, "Doga" (yoga for dogs), massages, nutritious homemade treats and more. Program offerings will be individually tailored to meet the particular needs of each dog, with some sessions overseen by a personal trainer and others offered in a group setting.
"Canine Fitness Camp helps dogs kick off the New Year with a fitness routine that will promote better health with exercise, stimulation and a bit of relaxation," said Joanne Morris, vice president of Morris Animal Inn. "If a dog needs to shed some pounds, this is a great way to get started because the dogs are motivated by the fun activities."
Morris Animal Inn recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion that doubled its size. The facility offers a heated indoor pool, whirlpool, pet suites with soothing music and videos, indoor and outdoor play areas, pampering and activities packages, daily maid and room service, Happy Hour with homemade pet treats and more. Perimeter fencing encloses the facility.
Reservations for the Canine Cardio and Fitness Camp can be made in advance for a day or week by calling +1.973.539.0377.
