Yoga for Dogs Is Becoming Increasingly Popular Around the World

Yoga for dogs = Doga

For thousands of years, the ancient practice of yoga has led to peace and enlightenment for people wishing to unite their body and mind. While some techniques have changed over time, chances are the early gurus did not anticipate the newest set of devotees: dogs. The latest fitness craze for dog lovers is called "doga" and it's coming to a mat near you. In a typical doga class, owners help their pups facilitate different poses, and they also do their own poses using the animals as helpful props. Owners also perform doggy massage and acupressure to help soothe and relax their pets.

A video will be coming out this year and Austindogandcat is on top of it! We'll let you know when it's come out and where to buy it.
