Did you know over 60% of or our household pets are overweight and lack of exercise is the number one reason for this. Just as in humans, obesity can cause a number of health related issues and shorten your dogs lifespan.
FITNESS with FIDO
Pilates, Yoga, Treadmill, the gym, running � exercising for fitness and good health. You�ve done all that, but you keep thinking there must be another way. Well, Bash Dibra has come up with another way that will benefit children, adults and seniors.
Take you dog for a walk every daya fun way for both you and your dog. But, not for the few blocks you walk them now � stretch it out to 10-15 blocks, even better, make that 10-15 blocks a round trip! Don�t give up after one day, before you know it it�s been one week, then two weeks and you�re feeling fit and chipper. Your dog is getting the exercise they need, and that can even help any problems you might be having with them such as destructive behavior, excessive barking, and just plain boredom. And before you know it, its lots of fun for you, your dog will love you for it, and your acaneighbors will be happy too.
Get you friends and neighbors involved, form a group to walk together. Become involved with your community, maybe you can even put together your own �dog walking� event.
If you would like to try this, but don�t own a dog, Bash says, �go to your local shelter and volunteer to walk the dogs, this will make the dogs in the shelter more adoptable because they will be calmer and happier for that family that will adopt. It�s a win, win project for all.� And who knows, you might even come away with a dog of your own to walk!
Bash is an animal behaviorist, a celebrity dog trainer � he�s trained pets of stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Basinger, Ron Howard, Martin Scorsese and Alec Baldwin. He�s also a renowned author of six books and a video, �Teach Your Dog to Behave; Dog Training By Bash, DogSpeak, CatSpeak; Your Dream Dog: a guide to choosing the right breed for you,� StarPet, �How to Make Your Pet A Star,� and a video and DVD �teach your dog to behave.�

Canine Court is the cornerstone of Fieldston Pets' mission to ensure that all pets have "forever homes". A safe and inviting sanctuary, Canine Court is a playground for pets, and a meeting place for "pet parents" to exchange ideas, build support systems, and create safety nets for lost, at-risk, or homeless pets. And because pets are our passion, and our mission is to ensure that pets who have homes remain in those homes, and that pets who are abandoned to shelters can be adopted into good homes, Fieldston Pets also offers educational classes, seminars and training sessions.
The Story of Canine Court and Fitness With Fido
Summer Begins with a scorch of the Early Dog days Of Summer...When you take your dog to Canine Court and enjoy the cool shade of the new willows
planted in the Park, and drink from the water fountain opposite Canine Court, made especially for both people and dogs...Remember its beginnings .....

The story in brief
In the beginning Bash Dibra created Canine Court Dug Run on April 14, 1998. But last year torrential rain and winds came and Canine Court was
flooded. The dogs had
lost their playground. The floods went away but some of the trees were missing so Canine Court volunteers helped
plant trees, and they are flourishing. This year on May 6th
Bash Dibra created the
Fitness With Fido Dog Walk to raise needed funds to repair the fencing.
Canine Court needs your readers and dog lovers support.
Howl-O-Ween is the next big event that will take place on October 28, 2012.
