As a dog trainer, the best thing you can do is walk with your dog. I feel most people assume that we all want what’s best for our dogs, all the time. We make sure they’re properly fed and have enough water. We take them to the vet regularly. We keep them clean and groomed.
All of these things are necessary, but there’s one area where people are sometimes lacking, whether it’s because of time, physical issues, the weather outside, and so on — so the most important thing we can do for our dogs doesn’t get done. That is a walk or some kind of daily exercise with their guardian. This is a shame, because daily exercise with their parent or guardian is one of the most important things for your dog.
Take your dog for a walk.
If you can’t do it right now, do it as soon as you can, and do it at least two times a day, every day.
This is the single most important thing you can do to give your dog the best, which is to keep them balanced. A balanced dog is a happy dog, and humans with happy dogs are happy leaders.
I know that some people think that their dogs get enough exercise because they have a big yard to play in, but that isn’t the same for two reasons. First is that playing in the yard is not structured and it can actually make a dog more excitable and hyperactive because they aren’t getting the proper bonding time and exercise. Second is that there’s a lot more to the walk than just exercise.
Here are five benefits of walking your dog every day:
Be Balanced in your energy and calm, keep walking for you and your dogs will love it!
Meeting people is not that easy, but it’s harder for both you and your dog. After all, it’s good for your four-legged pal to interact with members of his or her own species, but everyone has to get along.
It isn't easy if the dogs get along but you don’t really get along with the owner, that’s going to be a pretty boring play date for the humans. And it’s just as bad if you’re friendly with someone but the dogs spend the entire time barking and growling — or just have very different energy levels.
Still, don't give up because it can be challenging, so here are several ways you can make dog acquaintances and eventually find a few great friends for your dogs and you. Many times walking in your neighborhood will bring out other dogs on their walk. It is best to find people that you know so you know how their dogs have been cared for.
Usually this one can be obvious, but there are some things to consider. My vet told me that the dog park is the not very safe place to take your dog because there can be a lot of contagious diseases there. Many people go to the dog park because they don't really want to walk their dogs and don't watch them. They might not be taking very good care of their dogs either. I have seen many fights at dag parks when the parents are watching their dogs and this can cause serious injuries. If you watch your dogs and know the people the dogs can enjoy the visit.
Go to the Pet Store
While most owners don’t bring their dogs with them to the pet store all of the time, many do it at least from time to time, so there’s a definite opportunity here to meet people and their dogs. Of all the options, though, this is probably the least natural. Many times the staff can also be helpful and friendly so that will help your dog socialize with other people.
Join a Rescue or Volunteer
Want to meet other people who love and have dogs? A rescue or other type of dog volunteer organization can be a wonderful way to meet like-minded people in an environment that’s conducive to getting to know each other. Just be cautious about the canines. While most rescue dogs are completely harmless, there are some that may be suffering from behavioral problems due to their past experiences they’ve had, and you need to know what you’re getting your dog — and yourself — into.
