Doggie Fat Camp

We all know about dog sitters, walkers, daycares, trainers, etc. but here’s one I hadn’t heard about until now – doggie fat camp! Yup, it’s a day camp for dogs who need to shed a few pounds. A woman in Hutto, TX, not too far from Austin, recently started a business to help chunky canines slim down and get healthy. For $600 a month, pets spend a month at camp where they get exercise and go on a diet.

Hmmm….I’m not sure what to think about this one. I’m not saying it’s a bad idea – for some folks it may be the best solution and if it helps the dogs get in shape, that’s great! It seems to me though that getting a nice long walk every day and a few less treats may work too!

I would be afraid to leave my dog here. A child can tell you if they are going hungry or are mistreated, but a dog can’t. For that much money you expect results and you will get them, perhaps at great cost to your best friend.

I hadn’t thought of that, Jane. Just leaving my dogs somewhere for month would be a huge deal breaker for me!
