23 Pet Friendly Places To Workout With Your Dog

Want to know where to find Dog Friendly Gyms!

Chip & Ruby from Crossfit Fornix

You just got home from work, in a mad rush got your gym gear on, grabbed your towel and water bottle and just has your about to close the door. BAM! You just seen it.

You looked at your puppy and the excitement just on their face just disappeared. Your heart just dropped in your chest, those sad puppy dog eyes.

Now you have a BIG decision to make. Keep going and get to your gym class or stay home and walk/run the dog.   Why does this have to be one or the other?  Why can’t you do both?

Here at Dogs and Deadlifts, there is absolutely no question about it. We are PRO DOG in the gym, we love our Gym Dogs!

Now here is a serious question for you. Would you seek out a gym that was DOG Friendly? Most of my Friends would say, Hell YES! 

More and more Gym owners are realizing the benefits of either having their own Gym Dog or allowing members to bring their dogs along with them to a session. In this blog I have a list of Australian dog friendly places where you can workout with your dog. But before we get into the list here are a few  questions you want to ask yourself before you take your dog along to the gym.

1.  Does your GYM/Crossfit allow it

2. What is the gym policy around dogs

3. Do I need to book my dog into class when I book? Or let the coach know.

4. Is my dog going to be behaved and not cause any issues with people or other dogs in the class.

Now, these are just a handful of Gyms and Crossfit Affiliates that I know are pro dog here in Australia, and I hope you get to either drop in for a class or just follow them on social media to see their gym dog images.
