Burn energy while building a bond

Paws Yoga, also known as Doga

Have you thought about combining relaxation and exercise with dog yoga? With a bit of patience and training, it's entirely achievable. "Paws Yoga" or "Doga" offers both a physical and spiritual yoga experience, fostering a deeper connection between humans and their pets. While it's still gaining traction in Europe, it has become quite popular in the U.S., with many classes available. That said, a growing number of online tutorials can help deepen this unique bond with your pet.

Example of such a tutorial:

Canicross, often referred to as Canirun

This activity transforms your regular jogs into dynamic workouts alongside your furry companion. With the right harness, your dog can join you for the entirety of your run. Now's the time to challenge yourself, surpass personal bests, and tap into the infectious energy of your pet to break new grounds.


Inviting your furry companion on a bike ride? It's the dream of every cyclist or bike enthusiast with a pet. Bikejoring involves one or more dogs running in front of a bike, leading the way. The pet connects to the bike with a flexible leash, kept away from the front wheel by a "bike antenna." They sport a harness specifically tailored for this purpose. Ideal for high-energy dogs craving intense workouts.

Musical Canine Freestyle, also known as "dog dancing"

Fans of Dirty Dancing will be smitten. This special discipline melds obedience with rhythm, creating a dance co-choreographed by the owner and dog. The pet must keenly focus, mirroring the owner's every move. This dance requires both energy and flair, a lively and creative way for pets to expend energy.

Dog hiking

Dog hiking provides enrichment for both owners and their pets. This adventure fosters genuine bonding, allowing pets to relish the great outdoors while honing their endurance and concentration. Exploring varied terrains and vistas stimulates their senses and nurtures confidence. It's a golden chance to deepen the human-canine bond, all while satisfying the pet's physical cravings.
