If you have a dog that has really packed on the pounds and you're trying to get your furry friend back into shape, Sun Dog Cat Moon and Dolittle's pet store are hosting a new fitness challenge called 'Fido...From Fat to Fit."'

There is room for 12 pooches in the program which will consist of a 12 week competition full of workshops, swimming, walking, pet massage, and seminars on diet control. The winner will get some serious perks like a year supply of all-natural, healthy dog food, pet services and other goodies.

The deadline for entry is Monday, January 18th, so act fast.
