VIDEO: A Pit Bull goes from shelter reject to World Champion Disc Dog


This month we’re helping pet parents get — or keep — their pets fit for life. (Check out our expert pet-diet and weight-loss tips and videos.) But regular exercise with you pet can have mental benefits, as well as the physical ones.

Wallace’s dad Roo tells their story in the video above. Watch it — then share this post — to help us spread the word about the importance of getting off the couch with your pet.
