If it weren’t for my dog, there would be many days I wouldn’t get outside. As my kids have grown into busy teenagers, it has gotten harder to convince them to walk with me due to their busy social lives. But my darling dog never denies my invite for exercise!
Your dog can actually make the most reliable exercise  partner you’ve ever had — one that won’t cancel on you! It’s great motivation to get outside. And your pets need to get up and get moving for all the same reasons you do: Exercise boosts energy, helps maintain a healthy weight , keeps muscles toned and joints flexible, helps lengthen our lives and, above all, makes us feel better.
That’s why walking the dog is a win-win!
To help you make sure your pet gets safe, enjoyable exercise on a regular basis, I wanted to share these important pointers and reminders.
