New Jersey Pet Spa Offers Weight Loss Camp

Morris Animal Inn, a Morristown, N.J.-based luxury pet spa and resort, is offering a Canine Cardio and Fitness Camp in January to encourage pet owners to consider a weight-loss New Year's resolution for their pets.

The five-day camp kicks off Jan. 13, and the program is designed to keep dogs active, stimulated and stress-free. Treadmill trots, aerobic swim sessions in the spa's indoor pool, nature hikes, Doga (yoga for dogs), pampering massages and nutritious homemade treats are among the services that will be offered during the camp. 

Program offerings will be individually tailored to meet the particular needs of each dog, with some sessions overseen by a personal trainer and others offered in a group setting.

"Canine Fitness Camp helps dog kick off the New Year with a fitness routine that will promote better health with exercise, stimulation and a bit of relaxation," said Joanne Morris, vice president of Morris Animal Inn. "If a dog needs to shed some pounds, this is a great way to get started because the dogs are motivated by the fun activities."

Morris Animal Inn recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion. The facility offers a heated indoor pool, whirlpool, pet suites with soothing music and videos, skylights, indoor and outdoor play areas, pampering and activities packages, daily maid and room service, happy hour with homemade pet treats, tuck-in service and more.
