FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 15:24 An Imperfect Walk is Better Than No Walk

Labrador Lesson from FitLabPGH:

An Imperfect Walk is Better than No Walk.

The Labradors were looking forward to a weekend of hiking the hilly, rocky trails of Western Maryland. Instead, they found themselves in the Pittsburgh area, and wet trails meant no hiking in the woods. They could have complained, or refused to walk, but they got outside and enjoyed a walk with their human staff on the Montour Trail.

Move more. Move often. Whether you’re a dog or a human, remember an imperfect walk is better than no walk at all.


FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 51:23 Move more. Bark less.

Labrador Lesson from FitLabPGH:

Move more. Bark less.

Spending too much time talking about (or thinking about) your movement plan may actually prevent you from moving. Of course, do enough research and planning to stay safe, then get up and get moving. (Safety first…that’s why the Labs keep their human on a leash.) After your movement session, share your pics and insights…then keep moving!

Move more. Bark less. Make movement part of your lifestyle.

FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 28:23 Keep Your Humans Moving

Labrador Lesson for 7/7/23:

Keep Your Humans Moving.

As Labradors, we enjoy EVERY opportunity to move…even when it’s hot…or cold…or rainy…or snowy…Humans don’t necessarily want to go for a walk/run in what they consider to be “bad” weather. It’s your job, as a dog, to remind your human that tired dogs are happy dogs (even if they’re wet, dirty, tired dogs). Once you get the humans outside and moving, they may remember that movement is fun, and healthy, for dogs AND humans.

Whether you’re a human or a dog, remember that movement is good for your physical and mental health! Take home message from the Labs to all the dogs out there: get your humans to make movement part of your lifestyle (and part of their lifestyle).
