You know, all things considered, we have pretty good weather around here. Yes it rains sometimes, but, lots of people believe we need more than we have gotten the last couple of years. Yes, in the Winter it is cold and some days in the Summer are pretty hot, but, seasons are what make us have beautiful Autumn leaves. What is the point of all of this? You have no excuse to not walk your dog!
Dogs need exercise (and it is a pretty good chance we do as well). Even if they are lucky enough to have a yard to run in all day, walking your dog is also a social time with them…a time they can spend with you. And they enjoy spending time with you!
Did you know that walking your dog also helps their digestion? Yep, it’s true. It helps their heart and circulatory system. Pretty much their whole body. Again, it helps you too.
Here’s something you may not know. The time you spend walking your dog can also be used for training them. Making sure they follow your commands, that they don’t pull on the leash, and many others. See, it can even make them be better behaved. So many benefits.
This week is National Walk Your Dog Week. Find out some special tips and benefits here. Don’t let this be the only week you walk your dog. It is beautiful here with good weather. Walk your dog frequently.
