The Importance & the Health Benefits of Walking Your Dog
Walking your furry companion is so much more than just a way of exercising man’s best friend. It stops him or her from getting bored, it’s a behavior training opportunity, and it teaches your dog how to behave in canine company.
A sedentary pooch can quickly become an overweight one, and that brings all sorts of potential health problems.
Young dogs need around an hour of daily exercise, but some dogs bred for sports or herding activities may need much more.
You’ll also benefit from having a well-exercised dog, a tired dog tends to behave better and you’ll help your pet avoid unnecessary weight gain!
If your dog has a yard to play in, don’t expect your dog to create their own exercise routine just because you’ve put them outside. Dogs don’t self-entertain, so if you want to tire your pet out, playing catch or fetch is another great option!
A walk can make a dog very happy, it promotes fitness and encourages social skills. They love to check out the sights and smells of the world outside their own home. A dog that doesn’t receive sufficient exercise can easily become bored or destructive.
If you’re at work all day, Berwick Paws can take your dog out during those hours. Your pet will enjoy the company, and you’ll come home to a happier dog waiting to greet you.
