Walking the Dog

No, I’m not talking about a Yo-Yo trick. I’m talking about the dog owners out there!

OK- to put it bluntly, dogs have to poop and pee. Hopefully, they don’t do this inside the house…hopefully. Many owners are so busy nowadays that they take their pup outside, let them do their business, and take them back inside  (Or they open the door, let them out etc…)

So what am I getting at? Walk your pup! It’s healthy for both of you!

  • Dogs love love love being outside and exploring
  • Dogs are becoming as obese as people, walking both owner and pup helps with this….
  • Just a brisk 15 minute walk can make a difference for you and your pup. Remember what I said in my last post? Any exercise is better than none!

Now, I know you might be saying, “I’m too busy!” If you can’t do 15 minutes, do 10! Modify it to work for YOU! You and your pup will be grateful!

Also, I see many times the dog walks the human. I’ve actually seen it negatively affect the human’s relationship with the dog because the human doesn’t want to walk the dog because it’ll dislocate an arm…o.k. that last part was a bit dramatic. But it’s never too late to train your pup!

And because I love you guys, click here to go to a site that can help out if your dog pulls/doesn’t walk well on a leash.

Hope this helps!
