Embracing Your Health and Wellness Journey with Your Dog in Colorado

Embracing Your Health and Wellness Journey with Your Dog in Colorado

Balancing personal health goals with the joys of dog parenting can be a challenge. Juggling workouts, dog walks, and ensuring a nutrient-rich diet for both yourself and your canine companion demands strategic effort. The good news is that dogs can play an integral role in your health and wellness journey, helping hold you accountable and being a support along the way. As such, we're thrilled to announce our official partnership with UCHealth. Brutus Broth and UCHealth share a common mission of health and wellness, and together we are collaborating through the Ready. Set. CO program to empower you and your furry friend in achieving holistic well-being.

Exercise with Your Dog: Elevate Your Adventures in Colorado

Embarking on a fitness journey becomes an invigorating experience when shared with your pup. Explore the vibrant landscapes of Colorado and get both your heart rates going together. Bonus tip: bring some electrolytes for yourself and Brutus On The Go for the pups to ensure everyone is properly hydrated and nourished year-round.
1. Garden of the Gods can be as easy or as difficult as you want it to be! With various 1-2.5 mile hikes ranging in steepness, you can enjoy a variety of outdoor adventures together.
2. Pikes Peak is a giant playground for both humans and dogs. There are miles of trails that you can adventure together at all levels.
3. Seven Falls is a tough hike and involves a lot of climbing, but the views and falls are definitely worth it when they’re running! And if you get to the end, there’s even a dog friendly restaurant to enjoy together!

Eating Well: Nourish Your Bodies, Nourish Your Souls

Nutrition is everything when it comes to the well-being of both humans and their furry friends and we know that bone broth can be beneficial for both human and dog health. UCHealth’s Ready. Set. CO challenge includes nourishing recipes (plus so much more) to help keep mealtime tasty and good for you. And the pups? They deserve to love their food too! We believe that incorporating Brutus Bone Broth into daily mealtime and homemade treats can do wonders for your dog as well makes food taste better, which can be a game changer for picky eaters. Brutus Bone Broth’s recipes such as this Doggy Detox Smoothie or Gut-Healing Hot ‘Cocoa’ are just a few examples of ways to incorporate fun nutrient-packed treats into your dog’s diet.

Build Community: Strengthening Bonds in Colorado

The phrase "it takes a village" holds true not only for humans but also for our canine companions. Not only is community important for our wellbeing, it’s important for our dog’s wellbeing. New research is showing that dogs who are more socialized, and therefore experience less stress, are being associated with better canine health. Want to get your dog out and about? UCHealth has compiled a list of the best off-leash dog parks in Colorado, one of which is a 107-acre fenced area! And for yourself, don’t miss out on UCHealth events, classes, and support groups to help build a like-minded community.

Join us as we embark on this exciting partnership, where health is not just a goal but a shared experience. Here’s to happier, healthier lives for all of us (even the pups)! Embrace the journey and the joy of wellbeing, both for yourself and your furry friends.
