First seen on “The Only Way is Essex”, dog yoga is the new money wasting fad for those with more time than brain cells. Forget about walking them or taking them for a run, why not squeeze a headband on them and let them stretch and relax. Just feeding your dog is no longer good enough; neither is walking them, playing with them or even entering them into competitions. Now you must also create a spiritual connection between you and your pooch. A requirement which is possibly at the pinnacle of third world problems – “I just can’t get my dog onto a spiritual level, what about his well-being?”
If you want your dog to unwind and partake in “downwards facing dog”, unfortunately there’s no place in Ireland ridiculous enough to host it, yet. But click on YouTube and you will find a range of instruction videos and what poses are best to help your dog remain calm. So go ahead, get those doggy paws up and remember, breathe, bark and breathe.
