Why is regular exercise important for your dog?
Updated: Mar 19, 2019
Whether you have a small Yorkshire Terrier, an energetic Springer Spaniel or a Siberian Husky who was born to run for miles, regular exercise is key to your dogs well being. Not only is it great for your dog to stretch their legs and explore their surroundings, gaining confidence in social skills, but it also doubles up as an excellent way to bond with your furry friend. Or if they are perhaps still young and are training, then taking them to a wide open field to practice commands such as recall or fetch is very beneficial.
Whilst out on a stroll your dog could meet other dogs which is a brilliant way to keep their brain happy as well as their bodies by socialising from a young age. Not only is walking your dog good for their health mentally and physically it is also an excellent way of staying fit and active yourself!
A dog who isn't exercised regularly enough will display signs of boredom which can come in the form of being destructive in the home. So if you don't want your dog to chew your best sofa, then you better get a lead and get walking!
