2019 is right around the corner, and with it comes our inevitable resolutions for a healthier, happier New Year. And because nothing says happiness like the love of your pet, we’ve decided to do a round-up of the most inspiring animal and wellness Instagrammers on the scene. Give them a follow for a healthy dose of inspiration, motivation, and joy!
Getting into shape tops most people’s New Year’s resolution lists -- but let’s not forget about our dogs! K9 Fit Club is dedicated to helping pets and their owners get healthier together with smart, scientifically developed workouts and training programs. Founder Tricia Montgomery has revolutionized the wellness and pet industries and the results are truly inspiring!
Raku and Fenix are two Aussie brothers that love to share their athletic adventures while travelling the Pacific Northwest. These pups will make you want to get in shape by discovering more of the great outdoors!
Murphy is a Goldendoodle from Minnesota and another fan of outdoor adventure. He encourages you to enjoy life fully and become more anchored in the present moment. Breathtaking landscapes combined with Murphy’s good looks make for a delightful visual experience.

Millie is a confident cat who loves to accompany her owner on hiking trips across the country. Her owner, Craig Armstrong, is bringing the practice of “catting” more awareness. Unlike traditional hiking, catting is essentially hiking that is led by the cat instead of the trail. The takeaway? It’s all about the journey, not the destination!
Aspen & Koa are a pair of photogenic golden retrievers with smiles that stretch from floppy ear to floppy ear… and their smiles are seriously contagious! Pics of these pups will boost your mood in no time flat!
If you’re new to the DownDog site, then you’ll soon find out that we are HUGE fans of Doga. Doing yoga with your dog can strengthen the bond between you and provide a host of benefits for both of you and your pet! @yoga_pups provides plenty of Doga poses and tips.
Speaking of yoga with pups, here’s a great example of a delightful Doga duo! Ringo and @yoga_girl Rachel Brathen are social media darlings with the moves to prove it! Check them out for plenty of inspiration for your own Doga practice.
Dancing can be the perfect way to let loose -- why not invite your dog in on the action? Mary, an 18-year-old dance/training phenom and Secret, her Australian Shepard, are ridiculously talented and fun to watch. An advocate of the click training program for dogs, Mary makes their routines look easy -- maybe that’s her Secret?
Pilates is an incredible way to combine flexibility and strength training in your workout. Follow this Cavoodle for his perspective as a masterful pilates pup! Enzo shares his adventures inside and outside of the pilates studio… well worth the watch!
Doga is definitely not limited to dogs! Cats often show a lot of interest in our yoga practice (and mats!). If you’re a yogi looking to take your practice to the next level, then yoga teacher Alexzandra is your girl. Her inspiring videos make learning fun with adorable appearances from her cat.
