Recently I injured my hand at work and I couldn’t do my usual workouts. As someone who loves to stay fit this sent me a little crazy and I needed a silver lining, I had to figure out a way to keep fit and happy. I decided to combine my two happy places.. running and dogs! These two things send my ‘happy chemicals’ flooding through my brain. Having Ayla, my Fox Red Labrador, as my training buddy is the best idea I’ve had in a long time.. ok, me with an idea.. not saying much.. but it is awesome. It helps me think of different workouts which gives new inspiration and I have noticed that by doing this I am communicating better with her than ever before which I didn’t think was possible. I trained Ayla as a detection dog and I thought we did alright but now we are totally solid, I guess this made us both happy and I refer to her as Coach Ayla as she is always inspiring me/pushing me/giving me puppy eyes to come out and play/train!
Follow this blog to see workouts and adventures of Coach Ayla and her mates.. Yes.. her mates.. I have 4 dogs that I will introduce over time. You can also see more of us by following on Instagram and we hope to inspire you to workout with your best friend.
