Why is it so important to walk your dog? Many dog owners are so busy, it's hard enough to fit in potty time, feeding time and snuggle time.
Yet, without daily walking, dogs become anxious and are prone to develop behavior problems. Exercise (walking) is the most important part of a dog's health. In the wild, dogs roam for miles every day and that natural instinct to roam is still present in all dogs -- even yours. All dogs have different levels of energy -- but even dogs with the lowest amount of energy need at least an hour of continuous exercise a day, most experts agree.
A tired dog is a well-behaved dog. Through regular walking, many behavior issues can begin to be resolved -- after a long walk, your dog is in a calm state of mind and is more receptive to training and behavior corrections.
