Looking for a way to improve your mood, your health and your relationship with your dog? Take your dog for a walk! Walking your dog regularly provides benefits to the dog and owner. Wondering how to create the perfect dog walking routine? Here are 3 tips!
Morning, noon or night: your dog will be there when you are ready! It's important to pick a time slot you can stick to with some regularity otherwise it's hard to make it a permanent habit.
Luckily walking is one of those activities that does not require a lot of expensive equipment but you want to make sure you and your dog are comfortable. It's important to have a pair of supportive shoes and a well fitting Dog Collar with up to date Dog ID Tags. If your dog is a puller, consider investing in a SENSE-ation Harness to make your walks more enjoyable for pet and "parent". Don't forget to keep your dog on a durable Dog Leash at all times.
It might be right out your front door and down the street, but if you don't happen to live in a neighborhood with sidewalks or you live in an area with lots of noisy traffic consider talking your walks in a more serene location. You want the experience to be pleasurable for you and your dog so pick a quiet park or nature preserve.
