Recently, Dog Yoga poses have received criticism from the yoga circle due to its inappropriate usage of pets making it a “fad” and offending the traditional practices of Yoga. Pets can also turn out to be a concentration breaker especially when they are not trained enough and can lead to distraction while the owners tend to focus. The Dogs Trust from UK have issued a warning to Doga instructors that Dog Yoga may inhibit the welfare of dogs as they cannot express their feelings when they are over-stressed by these unnatural yoga practices.

Some have gone against Dogs Trust claims and spat back that the practice of Dog Yoga or Doga is to ensure mutual harmony and bonding between pets and pets owners.
