Love for dogs 

My love for dogs started from birth.  Growing up, my family always had a dog and that hasn’t changed.  Pictured, you will find my best buddy, Flyp and I.  Flyp is our 13 year old pug.  She has one eye and the cutest little personality.  She also loves chicken and snuggling.

My two passions are fitness and dogs.  That’s why I decided to create, “Steps for Pups.” It’s a great way to increase activity in your life and also contribute to a great cause.  For every subscription that we receive, $5 will be donated to Second City Canine Rescue.  Thank you so much for your consideration!

Steps for Pups

My journey in the fitness industry commenced back in 2003 at Equinox in Chicago where I gained extensive knowledge and valuable experience as a personal trainer and lifestyle enthusiast. While working downtown, I also obtained my degree in Psychology from Argosy University. Since then, I have developed a strong commitment to helping others improve physically, mentally and emotionally.

I created The Braykin Group, which is named after my son and daughter, Brayden and Kinsley, to bring out the very best in you and continue my passion for health and fitness.  The program itself will provide you constant support and reminders of why your health should be made a priority.  Welcome to The Braykin Group!

A general rule of thumb is that dogs should get between 30 minutes and 2 hours of exercise every day.  This can differ between breeds, but ultimately, we need to ensure that our dogs are remaining active and there’s only one way to ensure this…  We need to remain active for our pups!

The Braykin Group and Dawg Fence have teamed up to create an amazing fundraiser to help dogs in need.  We’ve named it “Steps for Pups” and here’s how it works.
