Walking can give us numerous benefits, like improved cardiovascular fitness, stronger muscles and reduced stress levels, and all these apply to our pets too.
Most dogs should be walked at least once per day, and those ones who are very active, may require more walks on a daily basis. Factors include the breed of your dog, as well as the level of fitness and age, will help you determine for how long and how brisk the walk should be ideally. In addition, a walk can brighten your dog’s day! Dogs love to check out the surroundings, smells, and noises that come with trotting around outside, and will really enjoy spending quality time with you.
Weight Control and Better Digestion:
Obesity in pets is associated with a number of medical problems, including osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease. In addition to adjusting your dog’s diet to his needs, regular walks will keep him fit and agile, it will also support your doggie's digestion as well as relieve occasional constipation.
No More Destructive Behavior & Hyperactivity: Pets can be like young children, they have lots of energy, and if you don’t give them something constructive to do, they might start chewing or scratching at something in order to remain entertained. A walk to the park can help to alleviate that extra energy your pet may have, calming it down and reducing any hyperactivity. Your pet will feel more relaxed and sleepy rather than restless at bedtime too.
More Doggy Friends: If you have a shy or nervous pet, a walk around your neighborhood can help him build up his confidence. By exposing your pet to other humans and animals, he will have the opportunity to adapt and begin to feel comfortable around them.
