If getting fit, losing weight and reducing stress are on your New Years resolutions list, consider the same for your four-legged best friend. Pet obesity is on the rise in the U.S., and the Morris Animal Inn luxury pet spa and resort is making sure committed canines have the same opportunity to get healthy with its Canine Cardio Fit and Spa retreat.

More than half of all dogs and cats in the U.S. are considered overweight or obese, according to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention. An estimated 41 million dogs tip the scales as overweight or obese, a condition that can negatively impact canine health.

The Morris Animal Inn, a luxury pet spa and resort, has designed Canine Cardio Fit and Spa retreat to jump start a healthier year for canine companions. The program will be offered from January 7 January 11, 2013 and is designed to keep dogs active, stimulated and stress-free with treadmill trots, aerobic swim sessions in the indoor pool, nature hikes, Doga and Pawlates, pampering massages, nutritious homemade treats, and more.

Canine Cardio Resolutions Camp is an active spa retreat rather than a doggie boot camp, but it does help dogs trim down and get healthier, said Joanne Morris, vice president of Morris Animal Inn. Camp is a positive experience because dogs are happiest when theyre active and stimulated so they actually have fun working out and enjoy our relaxing spa services.

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.

Morris Animal Inn recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion. The state-of-the-art facility has doubled in size and 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.

Located on a quiet country lane with over 12 acres, the new facility was designed to provide for both the comfort and safety of all pet guests. Morris Animal Inn is climate-controlled with purified air, smoke and sprinkler systems, back-up generators, 24-hour surveillance cameras and the capability for daily floor-to-ceiling sanitizing for the cleanest environment. Perimeter fencing encloses the facility.
