Yoga is a physical and spiritual practice that has been of benefit to humans for centuries—and now, yoga for dogs is emerging as a popular way for people to involve their pets as well.
In partnership with Spirit Ranch Dog Training, the Be Love Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is now leading 'Doga' classes where people can bring along their furry friends for bonding and therapeutic benefits. The Doga class is reported to inspire quiet and relaxation in the dogs, especially ones that have experienced trauma and abuse.
Although cat owners might feel left out of these lessons, yoga for pets is catching on in other places. For instance, Yoga at Connie's recently ran a special class with a cat shelter to promote interactivity, exercise and adoption.
