Have you heard the news from the FitLabPGH Labs??? We’ve introduced Labrador Lessons from the FitLabPGH Podcast! Every Thursday, we’ll be bringing you wisdom from the FitLabPGH Labradors (with occasional input from the cats).

First impressions matter.

As Labradors, we love to get outside to move with our humans. When we do, we stay alert to keep our humans, and ourselves, safe. When we see off-leash dogs, we need to assume they are unfriendly and/or uncontrolled, and we change our route to keep our distance and stay safe.

Whether you have 2 legs or 4, make a good first impression on other outside movers by being a responsible park/trail user! Leash your humans. A friendly greeting to passerby is great, but keep a polite social distance. In other words: don’t lunge at other trail users and give others room when passing. A little trail etiquette goes a long way to allowing everyone to enjoy their outdoor movement time.

FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 19:22 Summer is Coming; be Sun Smart.




Have you heard the news from the FitLabPGH Labs??? We’ve introduced Labrador Lessons from the FitLabPGH Podcast! Every Thursday, we’ll be bringing you wisdom from the FitLabPGH Labradors (with occasional input from the cats).

Summer is coming; be Sun Smart.

As Labradors, we love to move…on any terrain…at any speed…in almost any weather…but full disclosure: we don’t love hot, humid days…so we adjust our movement routine to stay safe and healthy when temps rise. We avoid the heat of the day by hiking early in the morning. We seek shade and soft surfaces when possible (sunshine + hard surfaces = burned paws). We slow our pace as necessary, and we stop for regular water breaks.

Whether you have 2 legs or 4, take steps to stay safe and healthy as summer temps arrive. Use sunscreen and/or sun protective clothing. Stay hydrated…bring more fluids than you think you’ll need, and consider adding electrolytes when sweat is a factor. And adjust your pace as necessary when heat and humidity rise. Take home message: stay safe today, so that you can keep moving tomorrow and through the summer.

FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 18:22 You Don’t Need a Special Occasion to Move




Have you heard the news from the FitLabPGH Labs??? We’ve introduced Labrador Lessons from the FitLabPGH Podcast! Every Thursday, we’ll be bringing you wisdom from the FitLabPGH Labradors (with occasional input from the cats).

You don’t need a special occasion to move.

As Labradors, we love to move…on any terrain…at any speed…in almost any weather (full disclosure: we don’t love hot, humid days). We don’t wait for a Doggy Dash 5k or National Walk Your Dog Day to take our humans out for a walk/hike/jog…we make daily movement part of our lifestyle, year-round.
Whether you have 2 legs or 4, don’t wait for an event or special occasion…get moving today. Find an activity you enjoy, then make time to move. Hate running? Take a walk! Explore a local park by hiking the trails. Grab a helmet and go for a bike ride. We understand some humans prefer indoor movement…that’s ok; our cats are like that…climb the walls, do some mobility work…just move!

FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 17:22 Take Time to Enjoy the Journey




Have you heard the news from the FitLabPGH Labs??? We’ve introduced Labrador Lessons from the FitLabPGH Podcast! Every Thursday, we’ll be bringing you wisdom from the FitLabPGH Labradors (with occasional input from the cats).

Take time to enjoy the journey.

 As Labradors, we love to move…on any terrain…at any speed. We know it’s not ALL about the pace. If we obsess about pace, we might avoid hills…and we certainly wouldn’t take time to enjoy a “Summit Celebration” with our human…and hills and celebrations are some of the best parts of hiking!

Whether you have 2 legs or 4, take time to enjoy the journey. Whether you’re hiking, biking, walking, or running, enjoy the experience. Of course, if you’re training for a race, pace is a factor…but outside of training sessions, try to find time to move for the sake of moving…take the hill…explore a new trail (even if it slows you down)…get outside and enjoy the experience of moving!
