Why You Should Walk Your Dog

Why You Should Walk Your Dog

Taking A Nice Stroll Has Countless Benefits

For most people, dog ownership would never be complete without walking your pet. There’s nothing better than exploring the great outdoors with your four-legged buddy.

Whether you are already in the habit of walking your dog or you are finding it hard to find the reason to do so, you will benefit from this post. Read on to discover the various reasons why you should walk your dog.

Socialization

Dogs are social creatures. Like a growing kid, they want to explore the world and they greatly depend on us on how much they can see around them.

Bringing your dog outside increases his chance of getting to know others, be it other dogs or other people. The best thing about having your dog outside is that you also get the opportunity to meet other people — people whom you would not normally meet if you simply stay inside.

When dogs are deprived of socialization, they may develop emotional problems such as being anxious, nervous and stressed out. With socialization, you can boost your dog’s confidence and happiness.

<h3 class="p3"><span class="s1"><b>Training</b></span></h3>
<p class="p2"><span class="s1">Whether you like it or not, dogs who can do tricks are way cooler than those who can not do tricks. So, get the right amount of training by bringing your dog outside.</span></p>
<p class="p2"><span class="s1">Of course, you can train your dog inside your home, but the setting might limit your dog to perform a wide range of tricks.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">One particular training your dog can learn from walking is leash training. It would be difficult if you teach your dog how to properly behave while on a leash if you would only stay at home.</span></p>
<p class="p2"><span class="s1">By bringing your dog outside, you gain the opportunity to help him be more responsive to commands such as “sit,” “stay,” and “lay down.” You can train your dog to obey you even in the midst of an increased level of distractions.</span></p>
<h3 class="p3"><span class="s1"><b>Exercise</b></span></h3>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">Exercise is necessary not just for you, but also for your dog. When you walk your dog, both of you benefit from it. You get the exercise you need and your dog as well.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">When you regularly walk your dog, you help him keep a healthy weight, develop stronger bones, tone his muscles, and burn excess energy.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1"><img src="//cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0263/2803/9476/files/1Why_You_Should_Walk_Your_Dog.png?v=1588018214" alt="Why You Should Walk Your Dog"></span></p>
<h3 class="p3"><span class="s1"><b>Better Behavior</b></span></h3>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">Giving your dog enough exercise is among the most effective ways to help him become more behaved and well-adjusted.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">Your dog needs a healthy way of spending his energy. If you don’t give him the opportunity to burn excess energy, he would use his energy to do problematic behaviors. That’s one possible reason why your dog chews on your shoes, slippers, and couch. You even see him digging all over your lawn and destroying your plants.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">A good walk in the park or a walk down the street could do the trick. When he finally gets home, he would just have enough energy to last him the day.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">Moreover, exercise is known to increase happy hormones and lower stress hormones. To make things even better, dog walking allows you to have a teachable, trainable, obedient and reliable pooch.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">Overall, walking your dog helps to lessen his hyperactivity, destructive behavior, anxiety and boredom. This makes pet ownership more pleasurable and fun.</span></p>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1"><img src="//cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0263/2803/9476/files/2Why_You_Should_Walk_Your_Dog.png?v=1588018225" alt="Why You Should Walk Your Dog"></span></p>
<h2 class="p3"><span class="s1"><b>Walking Is Healthy And Fun</b></span></h2>
<p class="p3"><span class="s1">A lot of things have changed for dogs over the millennia. In the wild, dogs wake up in the morning and walk to find food. Now, these dogs need to walk outside to keep themselves healthy and stay in shape.</span></p>
<p class="p2"><span class="s1">So, keep walking your dog. It will not only benefit him, but also you. With regular dog walking, you will surely build a stronger and closer relationship with your canine friend!</span></p>
