Why Walking is Better with a Dog

Over the last couple of years my fabulous mother has lost over 50 lbs by simply eating healthier and walking. No other fancy workout routines, just by adding more steps to her daily life. This is something I'm always trying to convince people of trying, but have always found hard to do myself. See, I like walking, but I always think it would be way more fun if I had a dog to make the walk more purposeful.  Unfortunately, my living situation (a tiny 350 sq/ft apt and long hours outside of the house) wouldn't serve a pup very well. But after losing our sweet, beloved family dog, Sammi this year - I've been exploring any way to make city living with a dog a reality. So when my friends Crissy and Charlie Saunders announced they were creating walkzee, an online platform connect people to shelter dogs - for walks - I knew I had to do whatever I could to make the vision a reality. More people walking, more dogs get fresh air, and more dogs being adopted! It's truly a win-win-win.

Watch my interview with Crissy and Charlie to see how they came up with the idea, and scroll down to see how you can make walkzee a reality.   

 There's about 2 weeks left of their Kickstarter Campaign, and they have about $8,000 to go - If they reach their goal, walkzee will be a reality by this summer (ahhh, summer)! Now if I had $8,000 I'd pledge it myself, but I don't. So here's how I'm going to sweeten the deal: aside from all of the attention and swag you'll get, I'm going to offer a free Your Health 101 session to anybody who pledges over $100 after watching this video. Just e-mail me at Jessi@JessiHaggerty.com after you donate to schedule your appointment.
