I gotta admit -this has been a toughie for us this time. For the summer version of Kamp, we got extra time in by adding a 2nd walk at night with the Daddy. But this month's been pretty crazy at Daddy's work, so we've only managed to do this about twice a week.
That leaves another day or two that we've been trying to add 30 minutes, and I gotta admit, we have fallen short. (Although we have at least maintained our 45 -60 min walks each morning. We're not complete slackers.)
We've snuck in a few extra minutes here and there by adding a game of fetch after we get home from a walk. While Rita fetches, I trade off doing jumping jacks or squats.
But Rita's not a natural when it comes to fetch. She'll go after it about 4 or 5 times, and then she's done. So that doesn't last very long.
We've also had a few dance parties. We'll put on some music and get our groove on, which must be a frightening sight to her, cuz she usually dives in to try to stop it! Here she is groovin' with Daddy:
|"Is this your only move, Daddy?"|
That usually only lasts about 5 or 10 minutes at the most.
So... we're not quite achieving the full extra 30 minutes of activity we set out to, but we're trying! There's one more week to go, and my new SlimDoggy gear just arrived so that should give us new motivation!
