The pups and I have been doing some puppy & me time. Now obviously I spend a lot of time with my littles, they are always with me, but I did some research to get me a bit more active along with the pups.

We do a series of a 5 minute workout which has three different levels, Hard, Harder and Hardest, BUT the main part is to work up a sweat while having fun with your furry friend.

Day 1 workout complete. This isn’t the only activity the pups and i do, we like to go on long walks, hike and run a mile or two but i really wanted to work on strengthening my care and what better way to do it with your pups.

I hope you guys enjoy and let me know what activities you like to do with your furry friend? Will you be trying out 5 minute workout? be sure to let me know in the comments below!
