how to make dog walks enjoyable


  • No matter the weather, your dog (and every dog) needs daily exercise and the mental stimulation of being outdoors
  • Walks are essential for the physical and mental well-being of canine companions; with a leash-trained pet and the right attitude, they can be very beneficial for us, as well
  • The most important thing you can do to set yourselves up for a lifetime of enjoyable walks is to help your canine family member learn to be the perfect walking partner
  • Dogs who are enjoyable to walk have learned that loose leads are good, taut leads are not, and pulling against the lead is pointless
  • Once your dog is dependably good on a leash, use your imagination to come up with different types of walks that will keep the activity fun and fresh for both of you
