The 2012 London Summer Games are officially upon us, and while it’s tempting to spend all day in front of the boob tube absorbing all the action, why not take advantage of the dog days of summer to engage in your own feats of strength and develop your athletic prowess?

Here’s a motivator—adding your pets into the mix makes exercise both more fun and more adorable.

We bet your pet would love a learning a new sport or trick with you! Whether it’s running, hiking, dog sports such as agility or just a vigorous game of fetch or hide-and-seek, exercise is great for pets’ health and keeps them mentally stimulated, balanced and happy.

So let the Summer Games inspire you and your four-legged teammates to get moving!
