When dogs are home alone, they have a hard time finding a productive, nondestructive way to keep themselves entertained. They build up energy and become more and more restless, and eventually take it out on your shoes, or your couch cushions, or anything they are not supposed to touch. A great way to keep this from happening is to take your pup on daily walks. A tired dog is a content dog, and the healthiest, most productive way for them to release all of their energy is to go on daily walks.
Walking has so many health benefits for your dog. It allows them to explore the world and become sociable, as they meet new dogs and humans. On the same note, walking is a great way to train your dog. They can learn how to walk on a leash, follow orders, and appropriately interact with others. Most importantly, walking provides your dog with daily exercise, which helps with weight control and keeping a smooth digestive system. Making sure your dog stays healthy is a way to ensure that they can live a long, happy life by your side.
