PetZen, Fur Fitness Team Up to Help Dogs Lose Weight

Posted: Nov. 20, 2012, 6:40 p.m. EST

PetZen Products, the Ogden, Utah, manufacturer of the DogTread treadmill, announced a partnership today with Fur Fitness under which the companies will create a line of health and fitness solutions for overweight and under-exercised canines.

Fur Fitness, a Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., company founded in 2009 by Melissa Morrison, creates custom fitness programs and nutrition plans for overweight and obese dogs.

“We believe that by combining our award-winning fitness products with Fur Fitness’ science-based programs and services we will be able to create a complete package when it comes to educating pet owners on proper exercise and nutrition to achieve maximum health and fitness for their pets,” said PetZen co-founder Krista Wickens.

 Fitness Companies Team Up to Help Dogs Lose Weight
The DogTread treadmill comes in small, medium and large sizes.
Fur Fitness and PetZen will target family pets, day-care facilities, boarding hotels, veterinarians, trainers and pet stores.

PetZen’s low-profile running platform for dogs was introduced in 2008. Among the company’s other products are indoor fetch toys and a line of Canine Gym Gear that includes the patent-pending four-in-one K9 Fitness Vest.
