It is recommended that you speak to your veterinarian before increasing your dog’s daily physical activity.

There may be no problems with increasing your dog’s exercise regime, however your vet may suggest some physical activities to be avoided or done only at low intensity for short time periods.
If you answered NO honestly to all of the questions:
- Your dog can take part in the Pooch Partners’ fitness assessment which will help determine his/her current fitness level

PLEASE NOTE: This physical activity clearance is valid for a maximum of 12 months from the date it is completed and becomes invalid if your dog’s condition changes such that you answer YES to any of the questions. If your dog’s health changes, tell your fitness professional as it may be necessary to adjust your dog’s exercise plan.
