Happy National Walk Your Dog Week!

National Walk Your Dog Week is Oct. 1st – 7th. Here are some benefits of walking your dog.


6 Benefits of Walking Your Dog

-Exercise (stay fit and healthy)

-Energy outlet (less destructive behaviors in the house)

-Build your bond (gain trust and strengthen your relationship)

-Digestion aid (moving helps digestion for you and your dog)

-Live longer (dogs that receive regular exercise live longer!)

-Exercise for you too (staying active has many of the same benefits for people and dogs–use each other to help keep motivated to be healthy!)

Try taking your dog on a walk every day this week (even if it’s a short one!) and see what differences you see in yourself and your dog!
