Exercising With Your Pup in 2022

Exercising With Your Pup in 2022

January 27, 2022

Dogs love to be a part of your daily routines! From taking long walks to home workouts to hiking in the woods or even simpler things such as going to get the mail or even making dinner. 

Since they always love to be included in these activities, why not include them in the healthy ones that would benefit them as well?

Keeping your dog active by involving them in physical and mental exercises for one helps to prevent boredom. A bored pup with no means of burning off energy could easily become destructive or even depressed. 

A daily or weekly exercise schedule could also boost your dog’s brain power and reduce health related risks, such as obesity, arthritis, health diseases, etc. 

Exercises to do With Your Dog

Here are a number of activities that you and your pet could carry out together this year:

Walking

Brisk and long walks around the neighborhood gives Daisy stronger bones, more energy, and loads of excitement. She might even meet a new friend or two.

Dancing

Engaging in choreographies with Daisy makes for better bonding between you two. It also gives your pet stronger muscles and more stamina.

Swimming

This not only works wonders on your dog’s muscles, it also increases endurance and gives Daisy a stronger heart and lungs. Swimming might be strange to her, so take it slow at first. 

Hiking

This is fun for your dog because it is a world of new smells and there’s the upside of mental stimulation too. 

Agility Training

Running your dog through an obstacle course exercises their muscles and improves coordination.

Doga

This is like yoga, but for dogs. It could be fun for your Daisy and tighten the bond between both of you and get in some good stretches. 

Tennis

Playing tennis with your dog is a great workout, and a way of getting practice for you. It also boosts coordination and balance for you and Daisy. 

Conclusion 

Now that you have seen how to incorporate your pet into your various daily routines, ensure that you practice safety precautions such as bringing along water to avoid dehydration, proper harnessing and leashing, etc.
