Exercising With Your Dog
Many owners take it for granted that dog wouldn’t need much maintenance after you get them as a pet. This is actually a very bad mindset to have. It is important that we exercise our dogs regularly, no matter what breed the dog is. In an article that I have written, we listed some of the top 10 active dog breeds. While it is agreeable that the dogs listed in that article should be getting regular exercises, most owners still prefer to allow their dog to evolve into a large furball.
Nevertheless, even if your dog isn’t listed in the article, it will do your dog more good than harm if you exercise with them regularly. In fact, when you exercise with your dog, you will be achieving various goals concurrently.
One such goal is that dogs who exercise more regularly than their counterparts turn out to be fitter and healthier than the perennial couch potato. in addition to that, their owners turn out to be healthier too. Studies have shown that there is a positive correlation between the dog’s health and their owner’s health too.
What happens when you exercise with your dog regularly? You are in fact building up rapport with your dog, and this in turns help you to be able to command your dog with more ease.
What’s more, dogs who exercise regularly tend to be intellectually and physically stimulated. This eliminates boredom in them, and hence they will not be destructive at home. This simply means that your dog would not destroy your furniture when you are not at home.
So, please do exercise your dog regularly. A simple walk around the neighborhood will suffice too. It keeps the dog physically active as well as keeping its mind sharp too.
