Fit Dog

Fitness is important for both dogs and people. The most commonly recommended exercise to improve fitness is walking.  Participation in the AKC FIT DOG program will bring health benefits to both you and your dog.

If you walk with your dog on a regular basis, join the ranks of AKC FIT DOG. There are 3 levels of AKC fitness titles—Bronze (FITB), Silver (FITS), and Gold (FITG). Each title requires a specific number of activity points to be completed, which varies based on title level. CBARRC is an AKC Fit Dog Club. To learn more:
