My name is Richie Allen. I am the creator of PetFitness.
I'm a certified fitness trainer and entrepreneur who started a popular online fitness brand over a decade ago. I've since sold that business in 2019 to shift my focus toward building better fitness for pets. I’ve always been fascinated with health and fitness, however, since getting my dog Driggs (an adorable Pit mix I rescued from Puerto Rico), I noticed a lack of emphasis regarding fitness for dogs.
There’s an endless amount of exercise accessories, supplements, and food brands for dogs, but what about an actual step-by-step plan? Think about it — If you wanted to improve your health and longevity, would you only focus on cardio? There’s much more to being healthy than the ability to run for hours on end. Not only do dogs need cardio, but they also require strength training routines and healthy food options.
Over the years, I’ve consulted with top vets, dog trainers, and doctors to create an easy-to-follow plan designed to improve the overall health and wellbeing of dogs— regardless of breed.
