Our Dogs, Our Personal Trainers

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with a little Chicken Soup for the Soul inspiration for you, and today I want to share a couple of stories about how dogs can act as your personal trainer—and frequently do! Our latest book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Life Lessons from the Dog, contains many stories about how having a dog has improved someone’s health and fitness—both physically and mentally. It’s amazing how many people have their lives transformed through having a dog—because the dog gets them walking or running, gets them eating healthier food, and teaches them how to enjoy the little things and put all the ups and downs of life in perspective.

Start your days with inspiration and motivation from the best of Chicken Soup for the Soul and editor-in-chief Amy Newmark. There's nothing like learning from the personal, revealing stories of other people. Amy shares her favorite stories and the wisdom, advice, and easy-to-implement tips that thousands of people have shared in 25 + years of Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Tips and advice on Mondays and Wednesdays, and interviews with fascinating writers and influencers on Friend Fridays. It’s Chicken Soup for the Soul to go!
