We all live extremely hectic lives these days. Wake up early morning, get home late afternoon/early evening, eat dinner, go to bed. We are exhausted after coming home from work and rightfully so. However, one has to think, “when is the time for your dog’s walk?”
It can be very easy to just come home, kick your feet up, give your dog a pet and be done with that responsibility. Although it is relaxing for yourself, this is not fair for your pup. They have been looking forward to you getting home all day and most likely want to go for a walk. There are many ways to fit this activity into your day, it just depends on when.
Just imagine walking your furry friend with the sun rising on the new day.
If you are an early riser, there is no more rewarding of a time to go for that walk then before you leave for work in the morning. Just imagine walking your furry friend with the sun rising on the new day. I could not think of a better way to kick-off a great day. There are those of us, understandably, that need every last second of sleep. For those of us, the evening is the best time for the walk then. There is nothing wrong with coming home after a long day, changing into comfortable clothes, get a little something to eat and then head out for some exercise with your dog.
These are just two easy ways to incorporate exercise into not only your dog’s day but, yours as well. There are so many physical and mental benefits to establishing a daily exercise routine because once you get on a roll of a couple consecutive days, its hard to stop and that’s a good thing. If you establish a daily routine and go to the same location for exercise as well, you may make connections with other dog owners that will give your dog another pal to play with. Who doesn’t love more friends?
Whether you get out with your dog early in the morning, late at night, or sometime in between, it doesn’t matter. It only matters that you get out there with your pup and be active! An active dog is a happy dog.
