TOP REASONS TO GO
FOR A WALK FROM A DOG'S POINT OF VIEW:
It’s good for my physical well-being. A daily walk keeps me physically fit. My muscles stay strong and my joints flexible and limber. And, it keeps me from becoming a couch potato.
It’s good for my mental well-being. A daily walk gives me a chance to explore the outside world using all my senses. I can discover all kinds of new sights, sounds, and smells. And I get a good mental workout too.
I get opportunities to socialize. A daily walk will build my social skills so I can be friendly with all the people I meet, as well as other critters just like me.
I get training & bonding opportunities. A daily walk can be my training time and help me bond with my pack leader so I can be calm and more sure of myself.
It gives me an outlet for excess energy. A daily walk will be an outlet for all my energy, keeping me out of trouble and from bad behavior. In the end, I’m not as anxious or bored.
There’s less behavioral problems. A daily walk, most of all, will make me a “happy dog;” a dog that’s strong, smart, and loving.
It’s good for my longevity. Because dogs that get a regular exercise are fitter and healthier than those that don’t. They usually live longer. As joints weaken with age, it’s very important to keep muscles as strong as possible. That’s why I get several “daily walks” per day.
