Your dog loves long walks on the beach, chasing after squirrels and his tail and going on a jog with you. Why not shake up his routine with a little bit of yoga?

Both you and your pooch will benefit from practicing the mindfulness-based exercise together. With "doga," you'll improve your posture and sleep more soundly. Your pup will benefit from increased circulation and, of course, the time spent bonding with his favorite human.

Before setting your pet up in a headstand (definitely don't do that), check out the doga moves below that the two of you can do together, safely. Namastewoof!
