Posted: Sept. 26, 2012, 9:00 p.m. EDT


The American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation launched a campaign to raise money and awareness about the proper conditioning, nutrition, training and rehabilitation of canine athletes.

The Canine Athlete Initiative aims to fund grants to researchers working in veterinary athletics and educate the public about the joys of participating in canine athletic events while stressing the value of preventive examinations and optimal nutrition.

The AKC Canine Health Foundation is using social media, online outreach, podcasts and website features to promote information on types of sports-related injuries, care for the canine athlete and other canine athlete health resources.
