COUPLE SPEND CORONAVIRUS SELF-ISOLATION BY WORKING OUT AT HOME WITH THEIR FLUFFY DOG IN ADORABLE VIDEO

By Jessica Testa and Joe McFarlane

A couple used their pet Samoyed as a work-out partner, and even as weights, as they self-isolated and worked-out from home.

Like a lot of people across the world, Julia Paech, 25, and partner Sven Suchanek, 26, are playing it smart and are self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic.

Unfortunately for the active pair, that meant avoiding public places like the gym. But on the other hand, it did mean the couple could include a fluffy friend in their work-out.

Recording themselves at home in Edemissen, Germany, the pair used Felix, the three-year-old Samoyed, as their work-out partner and weights.

Sven said: “Because Felix is a spontaneous and funny dog, he helped us by replacing our weights and even stepping in as our workout or yoga buddy.

“We feel great because we know he loves it. He’s such a positive dog and always wants to try out new things. Also, there’s just no way of feeling bad while seeing Felix’s constant smile on his face.”
