Jack's Journey - Trading the corporate world for a caravan

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - When a Scripps Ranch woman could not take her dog to work anymore, she found a new job and life.

CBS News 8's Jeff Zevely met Dawn Celapino and her dog Jack.

Celapino is a pet owner who takes her dog everywhere she goes, and wants everyone else to do the same.

Dawn is a fitness instructor whose life changed the day she met her Cairn Terrier named Jack.

She spent years whipping corporate employees into shape, but once she met Jack, their policy of "no dogs allowed" was a deal breaker.

Dawn dropped all of her clients to create a more dog friendly career.

Her business is now called Leash Your Fitness. It encourages people to lose weight while playing with their dogs.

From kayaking to paddle boarding, hiking to camping, Dawn says dogs are always invited because they have a way of making arduous working outs feel like a walk in the park.

Recently, it was Dawn who needed to feel the wind in her face. She took a 10,000 mile, 25-state journey with Jack.

For three months, her yellow RV named "Spirit" served their every need.

Jack can ride shotgun in silence for hours and hours.

You can visit Dawn's Leash Your Fitness to learn more.

Some of the footage in this video story was shot using a GoPro camera.
