Doggie Yoga: Downward Dog at its Best

Yoga's increasing popularity has been leading folks to get everyone in the family involved from grandparents to children to dogs. Yup, you read that right, dogs.

MSNBC is reporting the onset of "doggie yoga," which is being hailed as a new way for owners to interact with their pets as well as a way to get dogs to calm down. Part of the class includes gentle stretching and dog massage as well. I like the idea of getting pet owners and pets moving since both species are faced with an obesity problem these days, but whatever happened to an old fashioned walk?

Nonetheless, look for doggie yoga classes popping up (pet stores, animal societies, etc.) near you.
