Around the Campfire, K9 Kampers Tell All!

FitDog Friday is sponsored by Peggy's Pet Place, Slimdoggy and To Dog with Love.

If time flies when you're having fun, we must have been having a lot of fun because K9 Kamp flew by in a wink of a puppy dog's eye!

1. How much fun did we have? How did Kamp go? What did you learn? In addition to our regular FitDog Friday blog hop, today's the day for all Kampers to post your results and link up. And if you didn't have a chance to join in the fun, link up anyway with any fit dog topic. Don't forget to check out all the activities that kept our K9kampers busy.

2. What? Awards too? Yup! All K9 Kampers were so amazing, on Wednesday we'll be announcing our annual Kamp awards! Last year we had awards such as Most Stylish Kamper, Abs of Steel Award, Most Creative Kamper, and more....see what you or your favorite bloggers won!

3. Still Time for Prizes! We've got a great K9 Kamp prize package for one lucky winner worth more than $200, from our sponsors  EzyDog, NiteIze, and Only Natural Pet Supply. There's a leash, toys, books, and much more. Entries close Tuesday June 25 at 12 NOON PST. Enter at http://peggyfrezon.blogspot.ca/p/k9-kamp.html or http://kolchakpuggle.com/k9kamp. We'll announce the prize winner on Wednesday.

5. How'd we do? So before we go, we'd love to hear from you--what worked, what didn't work? Any tips for how we can make K9 Kamp even more motivating and exciting? We'd love to hear your suggestions and are always working to make K9Kamp the best it can be.

6. See you in the fall! The next K9 Kamp will be in October. Everyone can join. See you then!

 2. Can't wait for Fall? We've Got Mini-Challenges! Kelly and Koly believe that fitness is a year 'round consistent need, not just a special occasion. So to keep the K9 Kamp fun rolling between Kamp Challenges we're excited to announce that You Did What With Your Wiener is joining our K9 Kamp Team with the new monthly "Keeping Up With K9 Kamp" mini-challenges! Mini-challenges will be easy ways to help you make sure your pet's fitness is on track. Visit FitDog Friday on the first Friday of every month to get the new challenge. Welcome Jessica, Chester and Gretel!

  2. Since school just ended and I am a teacher, we got to do more outside than usual. We took extra 90 minute walks down to our lake. We also spent time playing outside. We played fetch, while I weeded the garden.

  3. We thought Kamp was great! It was very good motivation for moving more! It was fun to read posts by the other kampers and see all the different things people do with their pups. We will check in on the mini challenges for sure and we're looking forward to October -- by then it will be cool enough that we can start hiking again!

    We didn't participate in the K9 Kamp this time, but hopefully we'll be able to in October. We had already upped our routine and it was just too much to increase it more at this time! Perhaps Jessica's mini challenges will be more our pace, so we'll be watching for those! It was still fun reading all of the other posts, and we certainly got some good ideas for new things to try.

    Hey Peggy,

    We had a lot of fun joining in the K9 Kamp and we had to learn a lesson we didn't expect to learn during the time - you gotta be patient and exercise within your current limits! That was tough for my Mum as she really likes to run and will normally push herself too much, that didn't work this time and so we had to go with walking to get our exercise instead, but it was good to still be able to work out together,

    Thanks for co-hosting this fun event!

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  8. Kamp was great, although with the weather we had I can honestly say I hope to do more in October. ;-)

  9. Kamp went really good for us. I would say that I developed a new exercise routine but we had to stop because I got sick. Our mini challenges will help us pick it back up. Glad to be joining you and Kol's Notes in this fitness adventure.

  13. Schooner, Skipper and Myself had so much fun getting fit with K9 Kamp. We walked 4 days for30 minutes. We swam laps everyday. Schooner and Skipper did 12 laps. We did agility jumps for 3 days. Thank You so much for all the fun. We will continue for the rest of the summer.

  14. Great Kamp session! I can't wait until the next one - I've got some ideas in mind already to step up our creativity!

  15. After trying so many activities with Charlie I would say the hardest thing was this week, because I was working so much! I don't have a regular schedule so it's hard for me to set a time a few days a week that we can excercise.

  17. Motivation is always good. Nice to try new angles & read about others trials & tribulations. Well done for giving it a whirl.

  18. Kamp was great...it challenged me to be creative in finding new ways for Gizmo and me to be active...we'll be keeping it up and ready for the next session in October

  19. Hey Peggy - we were so sad that Kamp was over, so pretty happy that we're going to have mini-challenges all year. Jack loves motivation - especially prizes since he won that mystery basket from Park Day 2.0 last month!
