February 22 is walking the dog day

February 22 is “Walking the Dog Day.” Not only is walking the dog great exercise for you, but it is one of the best activities you can share with your dog. According to i-love-dogs.com, most dogs have the ability to travel up to 15 miles a day.

A dog who does not get enough exercise may exhibit signs of frustration and destructive behavior such as barking, chewing, digging, and running away.

Furthermore, walking the dog is great exercise for you, gives you an opportunity to socialize with the people in your neighborhood, and also allows you to bond with your dog. Make sure to respect your neighbors’ yards by carrying plastic bags to pick up your dog’s waste while you are out walking.

Start with just a 20 minute walk per day and in no time you and your dog will be in shape, happier, and will look forward to your daily walks.
