The IVMA is partnering with Live Healthy Iowa to help Iowans and their dogs get more exercise this spring through their
Strut Your Pup Challenge
The program challenges you to get out and get
active with your pet during Iowa's cool, spring weather. Studies have shown that people who regularly walk dogs may benefit from lower blood pressure, have a trimmer waistline and suffer from fewer chronic diseases. Dogs are a great accountability partner; keeping you active and on schedule.
Challenge your staff to get involved and promote the program to your clients.
Cost: $8 per participant
How does it work?
Team-up with a canine companion, get moving and track your activity minutes through the Live Healthy Iowa website. Compete with others in your community or across the state as you improve your health and that of a furry friend.
Challenge participants receive:
- A fun, dog-friendly gift
- Weekly email tips with ideas to stay active and healthy
- Access to a personal tracking page on the LHI website
- Unlimited access to online tools and resources
- Opportunity to win incentives and prizes
IVMA veterinarians will help answer participants' questions each week in the "Ask the Vet" section of the participants' weekly emails.
