Family Fit Dogs Enjoyed Lure Coursing and Races

At Woofstock

Woofstock is an amazing weekend full of fun for dogs and dog lovers.  It takes place in Woodbine Park near the Toronto Beaches.

The weather was beautiful. Walking around to see all the vendors and events was quite a workout, but many dogs also participated in the unique Dog Lovers Days family dog lure courses and the hilarious Wiener and Pug races.

This fit dog Friday we celebrate activities that encourage both mental and physical fitness for dogs and fun for the family!

Dogs Love Dog Lovers Days Lure Agility

Dog Lovers Days have created an accessible, portable Dog Lure Course with an agility tunnel and 2 little jumps,  designed for the family dog to enjoy. They set up 2 main courses at Woofstock and there were enthusiastic line-ups all day, both days. The courses were great fun and good exercise for hundreds of dogs and owners.

Most of  the dogs seemed to absolutely love chasing the plastic lure around the winding path like a squirrel. Some dogs that had done agility quickly jumped the little jumps and raced through the tunnel after the lure. Others bypassed them and stuck to the lure.

It was inspiring to see such a wide variety of breeds and people participating in the event.  There were some very passionate (and vocal) fans. It was great entertainment for the participants and the audience.

The Running Of The Pugs

Who could resist The Running Of The Pugs? We are a little biased of course (#PugLove Kilo the Pug), but we couldn’t get enough of all the adorable pugs who attended. They held a number of heats then a final race. The races were chaos of course and so much fun. Enjoy these pug athletes!

So great to see our pal Fishstick the Rockin’ Rescue and dad Tim at the race.  Check out his matching pug t-shirt from PugALug Pug Rescue (I have one in black for Kilo)!

We love Wieners AKA Dachshunds as they are a smart, fun, loyal, cute looking breed of dog. Their races drew a huge crowd of fans and was nearly as chaotic as the pugs.

I was travelling so we missed the first 2 weeks of the Fall Fitness Challenge but we are back on it now.

This weekend, Kilo and I will be doing strength training, hiking around the hills in the ravine and playing in leaves. I have also been making lots of delicious meals and treats using healthy fall foods like pumpkin and sweet potato. Our hop host Slim Doggy has some great strength training tips today.

What will you be doing this weekend to keep fit?
