What You Need to Know About the Boycott Against A Dog's Purpose

Molly Sims and Poupette Get Fit . . . and You Can, Too!

Getting fit starts with you! Sign the online PetFit Challenge and get ready to make a change for your dog or cat. The site offers useful features like a calorie-burn chart, a treat translator, and a fairly terrifying "human parallel" showing how your pet's additional pounds would translate on a human body. Eeks!

When you're ready to get started, download the Owner's Guide to Healthy Weight Management for dogs or cats with its tracking chart and pictures to help you look for — and see — a difference. Get creative and make a new fitness routine incorporating some do-together exercises, too!

  • Curious Cat Curls: Tie an elastic band to a toy around your dumbbells. As you curl, watch your cat go crazy to try to catch the toy as it ascends and descends.
  • Dog Squat Tease: Stand with your legs spread shoulder width in preparation to do a leg squat. As you descend, tap your dog with his favorite toy. As you rise, lift the toy above your head to encourage your dog to jump after it. This can be done in your home and outside as well.
