I couldn't help chucking at the look of horror / dirty look my cat would've shot me had I suggested we exercise together...

Yes, actually our Boston terrier is most likely overweight but built like a tank (which is needed in playing with my 10 yr. old son) and our Akita is starting to show some extra pounds somehow with all that fur. So every day they are my "excuse busters" on getting outside and taking them for their walk or walks. They LOVE going, and will actually dance around in a circle if you mention "walk". They will hound you till you get the leashes then we are off and moving. My husband and son will actually do more activities with them in the backyard running around and throwing toys, but I prefer to get the whole family into evening walks with the spring like weather and the dogs are a big motivator to get us moving as a family.

Plus the dogs act as my fitness coaches inside staying with me in the rooms I use the elliptical, do yoga, boxing, and cardio dvds in. Its not unknown for my dogs to stretch out beside me as I do yoga moves to a dvd- so I call them my "furry coaches". emoticon emoticon emoticon

For sure.
The three 'agendas' all agree that I must go out and walk four times a day. We have two long ones and 2 quickies. I don't think they would like it if I went without them. The advantage is that I am out in all kinds of conditions. No excuses!

Definately. He is always up for a walk. Adn he lets me go at a time or to a place that I might not otherwise feel safe. He is very intimidating to look at. Potential muggers beware he might lick you to death.

I did but one of my dogs broke his hip last month. So right now he can't walk for long walks.
So I have been walking without either dog.

Every day starts with those big brown eyes silently saying "Walk" and that little pixie face yapping "Run, run, run" So it is a rare day that I can disappoint Badi and Lala. We walk and run about a 3 mi. path in the desert. It is a good start to every day. emoticon

My shih tzu, Piper curls up on a snuggly blanket on the couch and stares at me (wish I know what he was thinking!)-- does that count? He is with me.

The cat and I run around the house chasing each other! I consider that a little extra exercise for me as I walk every day!

I walk with my dog, who is a beagle mix, early in the morning. I wouldn't feel as safe walking by myself. He also runs a couple of miles with my husband each week, but is slowing down as he gets older. If I decide to exercise with a TV show instead of walking, the dog gives me the sad puppy eyes look.

My three golden retrievers DEMAND exercise which encourages me to get out. We go to a place where I can walk and they can run and we are all happy.

I can only take the one. The chi's are to small and to old to keep up. My Lab mix has health problems that keep her from walking. And my husband healer wont walk for me.
So I take Sugar my GSD. She is a great walking partner.

My dogs like to take walks and jog with me. My black lab, Rufus is lazy and out of shape. After jogging one day last week, he threw up. I know it's horrible, but when I saw that, I knew we had just had a good workout!

My dogs are old (and in one case, overweight), but I can occasionally get them to run around the yard with me. Do your pets like to exercise with you?
