Walking can improve the mental and physical health of both human and dog. We know this but sometimes make up excuses why we cannot walk our dog. If we make it fun and throw on our favorite music, or podcast then we can create a positive experience for us make it more likely we will walk our dog again.
A fun motivational tip is to listen to a particular playlist, book, or podcast while on that walk so you look forward to the walks and dedicate that for only your dog walks. Here are more motivation tips from FitBark a GPS and Fit Tracking collar for your dog. (genius)
The CDC recommends walking about 20 minutes a day and this is great for dogs too depending on their age, and the weather. Even if you walk your dog for 10 minutes, that is better than no walk, righ? My motto is keep it simple and allow for flexibility without judgment.
Reasons Why You Should Walk Your Dog:
Dogs have their own set of nutritional needs. But A LOT of dog food isn’t designed with the optimal nutrients that they need to stay healthy. They also need a sharp brain to train well!!
Kai loves these two supplements added to his food, which keeps him jumping 20 feet off a dock at 8 years old!!

Walks are much more than just exercise!
New walking routines broaden your dog's horizons, helping to strengthen their social skills and even offers mental stimulation by stimulating your pet's mind through sniff-breaks, new sights, and new opportunities to train.
Walking your dog regularly provides a necessary foundation for physical and mental health. If he or she is confined to the house for too long, your dog will get bored, and boredom can lead to destructive behavior.
Dr. Susan Nelson, K-State veterinarian, and professor says, “People and their dogs both need physical activity to fight obesity, and there are many exercises that owner and pet can do together that can improve their health and their relationship.” according to a Kansas State University expert.”
We understand how important it is to keep your pet healthy and yourself, so we offer a two-week dog walking trial! The American Veterinary Medical Association says, that training your dog to “behave on a leash, and seek help to address any behavioral problems” is important to when beginning a walking routine for your new puppy or adult dog. If your dog needs leash walking training first, we will recommend a plan for the safest pet dog collars and leashes available.
Comment above and let us know how long you and your dog like to walk.
