Doggies Become Yogis

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Downward facing dog has never been so literal.

Yoga 4 Dogs is a fitness DVD that incorporates man’s best friend into a yoga workout with their masters.

Creator Amy Stevens’ dog would always jump on her lap when she did stretches at home, so she decided to let her pooch in on the exercise.

She assures that “doga” is mutually beneficial because both pet owners and their dogs get fit.

While humans are in yoga poses, Stevens encourages them to pet their pups and then put them into similar poses so they can stretch their tired muscles too.

Dogs will not only have stronger, more limber legs through yoga, they’ll also develop a better digestive system and learn to relax.

The exercise also creates a bond between mutt and master that lets Fido know their owner loves them and wants to spend time with them.
