With an athletic background in Division One collegiate soccer, followed by a new found love of running as an adult, Kimberli formed racepacepups in 2016 (relaunched as The Fittest Dog in December 2019). After hobbling through what she describes as a “disastrous marathon,” Kimberli found herself sulking on a beach one day, reliving that disappointing race, when she saw a woman running past with her dog. Kimberli’s mood was instantly lifted and, shockingly, her self pity instantly went by the wayside. The idea of combining her love of dogs with her love of running snowballed, and this idea became her purpose.
In our short time in business, we have run with overweight dogs who need exercise for health reasons, pups who have excess energy that needs an outlet, as well as those who simply prefer to RUN instead of walk! We tailor each workout plan to your dog’s specific athletic abilities. Just like with humans, most dogs have different exercise needs, hence the one-on-one running (and walking, of course, as necessary!). We look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family member soon!
