DogTread® and Fur Fitness® Join Forces to Improve the
State of Health and Fitness for Dogs
DogTread and Fur Fitness have announced their strategic partnership to bring the world top quality fitness products and program solutions for dog-specific wellness.
http://www.DogTread.com OGDEN, UT – November 20, 2012 – Today, the nation’s leading dog fitness product company, DogTread® by PetZen® announced its partnership with Fur Fitness®, experts in pet fitness training and education. Together they intend to create the largest and most comprehensive source for expert dog health and fitness products and education.
DogTread by PetZen Products, founded by Krista Wickens and Don Standing, is a respected leader in manufacturing, distributing and marketing of dog treadmills. In 2008, they introduced the first dog treadmill specifically for the family pet with its unconventional low-profile natural running platform. DogTread’s quality and craftsmanship comes from a distinguished 35-year track record of designing, manufacturing and marketing treadmills and other exercise equipment for the human fitness world, including iconic properties such as Reebok, Gold’s Gym, and NordicTrack. Partnering with experts in the canine industry they were inspired to design a dog-specific treadmill that incorporated the fundamentals of how a dog learns and thinks to make the experience fun and rewarding.
Fur Fitness, founded in 2009 by Melissa Morrison, is a leader in treating and working with overweight and obese dogs. As pet parents themselves, Fur Fitness has had great success with its unique approach in helping pet owners recognize their pet’s obesity problem and is able to provide solutions through customized fitness programs, nutrition plans and weight loss schedules that are clear, concise and easy for pet parent clients to implement. Fur Fitness is currently growing its service base and the Foundation’s educational outreach due to increasing interest and awareness. Most importantly every single day the coaches and trainers at Fur Fitness take pride and pleasure in seeing firsthand how the pets they work with become happier and healthier through regular exercise and weight loss.
Together, DogTread and Fur Fitness are specifically targeting family pets, doggie-daycare facilities, boarding hotels, veterinarians, trainers and pet stores with a full-line of health and fitness solutions for overweight and under exercised canines. “We are very excited about this new partnership” said Krista Wickens
