Your Dog And Exercise
Fitness for the Whole Family
Hopefully you and your family members have an exercise routine for continued good health. Your dog is part of your family and should also have an exercise routine for his sustained good physical and mental health.
Your dog’s exercise needs are dependent on his breed, age and health. To be certain that you’re on the right track first consult with your veterinarian. He or she will give you guidelines based on your dog’s individual needs.
I’m sure that you’ve walked past a yard where there’s a fenced in dog and he follows you from one end of the fence to the other as you stroll by. He’s barking, yipping, jumping and basically begging for your attention. His parents are probably away at work and he’s left to figure out his own exercise routine while they’re gone! Just as you and your other family members, he needs to get some exercise every day. A consistent and well- scheduled exercise routine will be beneficial to everyone in your family and this of course includes your Loved Dog!
Outline a Doggie Exercise Routine
For a dog living in an apartment the stress can be somewhat more elevated and so exercise at the beginning of the day is crucial. This morning exercise routine will allow your puppy or dog to burn off the energy that would otherwise manifest itself in destructive behavior while your gone during the day. Sadly, it might be directed at your best pair of shoes or sofa cushions. With you gone, who knows what will become an attractive energy outlet.
If you and your family are going to be gone most of the day then a walk prior to leaving for work and your children going to school will help alleviate your dog’s stress. You can make your dog’s exercise routine part of the family’s routine. Your dog’s walk can be something that gives you and your children an opportunity to bond with your furry family member at least a couple of times a day.
