The "Live, Walk, Bark" Project
Founded by Mia Perulli
I started this project with the mission of improving the social and mental health of my community via the use of physical exercise with man's best friend. We share many characteristics with our four legged friends, including the importance of ones mental and physical health. In other words, exercise is as important to dogs as it is to us. Many do not know the effect of minimal exercise on their beloved pets until its too late. Thus I began my project, hoping to establish agility equipment in my local dog park to encourage the dog owners of my community to improve their, and their dogs, health. While its not yet complete, I hope to spread the word of the missions to other communities around the world, in hopes of improving the dwindling health of our society.
