“I do CrossFit at home, but he” — Paxton the Jack Russell — “also needs to get fit,” says Jessie Simon, one of my classmates.
“It’s a bonding experience with the dog,” says David Essex, holding Windsor, a border collie-cattle dog mix. “It is more of a workout for us, more of a patience thing for them.”
I wonder what the odds are that I could get my two dogs off the 25 dollar couch I bought at Goodwill for them to plush out on in our garage for a class at Zoom Room? How about an at-home workout? Some of their escapades do remind me of a run through an obstacle course. One of them has a new routine that he’s just deployed where he starts at the gate between the kitchen and the rest of the house, knocks that down, then jumps over it to escape into the living room, where he darts back and forth like a speed skater until I herd him back where he belongs. Now, I admit it is more circus than circuit but hey, I’m definitley getting a workout out of it.
