“It’s hard to keep motivated and to always make the time for a workout, especially if you have a dog to look after and walk too.

“Working out with your dog makes so much sense and it was really easy to incorporate Winnie, she absolutely loved it and just thought we were playing. As your dog gets more familiarised with the movements you’ll become a streamlined workout team – until then your abs will get a good workout from the laughing.

“Since owning Winnie I’ve realised just how important it is to keep her active and healthy so teaming up with Pets at Home to create a workout really was a no-brainer for me.”
