It’s about time that you and your favorite buddy go out and hit the town! Grab the leash and call out to him or her and go for a walk. Take your dog to see some trees, bark at some cats, and run through the breeze, especially today on Walking the Dog Day!
The great thing about walking your dog is that it’s so easy and healthy for both of you. The exercise is exactly what your pup wants, and exactly what you might need after a long day at work.
In honor of Walking the Dog Day, here are some reasons you should go on a walk with your dog everyday:
1. It keeps your dog active and healthy, and prevents building up too much energy that could result in destructive behavior. Find out here why it’s so important to keep your pooch active.
2. Dog nature is to be exploratory and taking your pet for a walk daily fulfills their need to roam.
3. Walking around daily allows your dog to become acquainted with the other pups in the area and maybe even make friends! We all want our dogs to have friends, don’t we?
4. Bonding time for you and your best friend. Going out daily and having a schedule to do so not only builds a relationship of trust and friendship between you and your dog but it also provides structure for their days and that is always important.
Happy Walking the Dog Day!
