invites dog owners around the world to “Move Your Mutt” on Jan 1-4.

Need a great New Year’s Resolution? is offering dog owners around the world an opportunity to exercise with and learn from leading canine fitness experts during its first Move Your Mutt: Virtual Human and Canine Exercise and Health Expo scheduled for January 1-4, 2014.

I resolve to move my mutt…and move my butt!

Why not resolve to get yourself and your pet
moving in 2014. You can track your activities on and update your dog’s weight at least once a month so you
can keep track of your progress throughout the year.

Kelly urges me to get moving!

* Educational videos from industry experts on canine fitness, food, and wellness – Video presenters include a keynote address from Dr. Katy Nelson on the role of exercise and nutrition on overall pet health and wellness.
