The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the weather is warming up… it’s Spring! Now’s the perfect time of year to grab the leash and your 4-legged best friend for some much needed outside play.
Bond Outside the Box
Getting outside of the house for play and exercise can be a great bonding experience for you and your dog. Dogs are used to their homes and surrounding areas. By getting your canine companion out, not only do you have the opportunity to explore new sights, but your dog also gets the chance to try new things. It can even help reduce problem issues caused by separation anxiety. Whether it’s smells, locations or people, introducing your pet to new surroundings is always beneficial.
Does your yard look like someone’s been looking for buried treasure? Having problems with destructive behavior like chewing on carpet, furniture, shoes, etc.? Exercise, along with making sure Fido has the correct chew toy, can significantly help reduce these problems. Taking your dog out for long walks is a huge help in reducing his energy level when he’s in the house. A tired dog is a good dog!
Is Your Dog a People Dog?
Another great reason to exercise your dog is so he can meet new people, new animals, experience new places and see new things. If you choose different places to walk like a public park, an outside food venue or a strip mall your dog will be able to successfully socialize and be more adaptable to change.
Whether you live in a small town or a big city, getting out for exercise and play with your dog is beneficial for not only your pet but you as well.
