Here’s How You Can Celebrate National Pet’s Day

Has anyone heard of “Doga”? Well, it’s becoming quite popular and clearly, you didn’t get the memo. That’s why we’ve got you covered. Doga is yoga but with a fun twist. Or should we say furry twist? You can now enjoy doing yoga with your new workout buddy – your dog! Yoga is proven to have health benefits and practices that have helped strengthen the mind, body, and soul. Extensive research suggests how this activity not only has health benefits but also has helped those battling cases of anxiety, pain, and stress. 

Doga is the best way for both you and your pooch to squeeze in an hour of exercise into your day. I mean it’s better than doing it by yourself. You have your furry one to motivate you to get to the mat! Doga emerged from a yoga teacher, Suzi Teitelman, from Jacksonville, USA. As dogs are limited to doing certain stretches, the ones that they can do act as a great massage and help them unwind too. The Founder and CEO of Yoga Force, Anne Appleby, from SF, got candid on a podcast about how Doga can be beneficial for both the pet and the pet parent. Apart from spending time with your furry one, there are many plus points of doing yoga. 

Doga is a great way to bond with your dog. While bonding you also learn about how to read your dog’s body language too! This activity can help your dog let his/her guard down around you and strengthen the relationship that you two share. After all, it does take two to tango! When you insist on spending that time with your dog, you cultivate a habit for both yourself and your pup. This habit helps deepen the bond you two share and helps both of you’ll unwind from a long day of duties. This activity isn’t just another recreational sport. It helps focus on how the two of you can understand each other better and react to each other or situations organically.  

 Research is yet ongoing on the physical benefits of Doga but if your pup is overweight or not in his/her best form, it can help tone up. While your pooch may mistake exercise for extra rice, it is important to integrate an aspect of physical activity into his/her regime. If you two are regular, Doga will help burn the fat and strengthen the muscles. The reason why this activity flows very inherently to your pooch is that Doga helps them stretch out and every muscle movement in their body. It also promotes blood circulation, flexibility, and mobility. As your dog enters senioritis, there are chances of him/her falling prey to arthritis. Doga encourages your furry one to be agile and mobile. It is also extremely helpful for those suffering from hip dysplasia. Senior dogs can use sessions of Doga to help ease out any joint ache. If he/she is recovering from an injury, this activity is a relaxing and not taxing way to start healing the area. It also provides significant relief and pain and helps rebuild strength. 

Doga can also help those furry ones who are dealing with stress or anxiety. It helps calm the nerves and alleviate any behavioural issues. Anxious puppers will learn how to be still and calm thanks to Doga. It might make them feel rejuvenated and less worked up. It is important to invest in many sessions for your pup to achieve this as he/she may need a lot
