Walk the Dog | Fitness for your furbaby

Walking your dog is part of the commitment that comes with doggie ownership. Studies indicate a well exercised dog may show fewer problem behaviours like excessive barking or destructive chewing. Walking helps with weight control, mobility, mental stimulation and give a mental lift to both the dog and the human.

Walking also provides opportunities for training and socialisation, both for owner and dog. Facebook is full of breed specific groups who organise regular playdates and outings and is a great way to build your dog’s confidence.
