You may already know that there are numerous health benefits to walking, but did you know it's great for your dog as well? Here are just a few good reasons why you should start today.
Dogs Are Social Animals
Socializing builds confidence and gives you a chance to show your dog how to interact with other animals in a positive way. While on your walk, you can monitor their behavior from the safety of a leash, while your dog enjoys all the excitement and stimulation that comes with making new friends!
Walking Is Good For Your Dog's Health - And Yours, Too!
Walking for 30 minutes or more each day can reduce your risk of heart disease and other illnesses and these health benefits apply to your fur-baby as well. Walking also improves digestive health and helps relieve constipation that may arise as a result of a sedentary lifestyle.
Over half of all dogs suffer with complications due to obesity. Exercise helps prevent and manage chronic diseases by keeping your pet at a healthy weight. Dogs with arthritis and diabetes can benefit greatly from walking.
Bonding With Your Dog
Setting aside time for you and your fur-baby builds trust and respect. Just like us, dogs need love and attention. Going on routine walks with your dog, can help strengthen your bond, and lead to a long, loving friendship!
Walk your dog regularly.
Regular walks can improve and lengthen your pet’s life. Just like humans, dogs need regular exercise to help improve their heart function, and muscle tone. In addition to heart function, walking can be beneficial to their cardio-vascular system, their lymphatic system, and more.

Make sure to keep his or her vaccinations up-to-date, and make walking part of your daily routine this year.

My sister would like to take her dog for a walk because she believes that this may help keep them both healthy, which is why she's thinking of buying an app for a dog walker. Well, aside from this, you are also right that this may lengthen the pet's life too. Anyhow, I'll keep in mind to tell her that she must keep her pet leashed too.

I liked it when you shared that going on regular walks with your dog can lengthen its life. My friend just mentioned the other day that she feels guilty for not taking her dog for a stroll every day as she has been busy with her children. I will suggest to her hire a reliable service that can help to take it for a walk every day.
