Getting More Active & Exercising With Your Dog

Getting More Active & Exercising With Your Dog


“Exercise, move around, have some fun while you get things done, don’t sit like a stone, keep your muscles in tone, move it and you’ll feel better.” This lyric was once part of an ancient PSA (Public Service Announcement) from way back in the seventies that reminded us that getting more active has a number of health benefits for both humans and our four-legged friends.

During our daily walk with our dog, while this is a common and regular occurrence, but we still need to be more vigilant when it comes to exercising every day with our beloved animals. Pet obesity is a growing problem with our canine companions and puts them at some serious health risks for their overall health and longevity.

Depending upon their age, weight and the overall health of your beloved buddy, their exercise needs could vary greatly. Always check with your veterinarian before changing their activity levels or dietary requirements, but keep in mind these important tips:

Let Them Play While You’re Away

Let’s face it, we all have to work for a living or perhaps attend school or other activities that  means leaving our pets alone for extended periods of time during this necessary absence. But this doesn’t mean they have to lie around and lazily await our return. We can help to keep them to be engaged and active during our time away with some other creative means.

For example, here are some ideas about interactive treats, tricks and toys that can have them becoming more mobile while you’re out and about, check it out:

  •  Hide and Seek: Since dogs have an extraordinary sense of smell, you can hide some delicious treasures around the house for them to find while you’re away.
  • Toys with Treats: Interactive toys have another means of keeping them active, like peanut butter hidden inside a chew toy that can have them licking away for hours at this item for hours.
  • Fetch and Fun: Some creative dog-loving geniuses have designed some “fetch machines” that allows dogs to play this popular game while you’re away. With a little training and minimal preparation, just load it up and let your dog play for hours and hours while you’re away.
