We all need to socialize and excercise

See also

Many a dog lover considers their dog their best friend and for good reason. However today with the internet for our social network, is our FFBF suffering. How often do we take our pet to the park for a run and how often do we take them in the car to go shopping? For that matter, how many of us take our FFBF into the store with us?

These are good questions and seem to be the polar opposite of Are you lonesome – get a pet. The truth is many of us treat our FFBF like our best friend but forget that they have needs also. We need to take them out for walks and to run, they need this exercise to stay healthy. Keeping them socialized with other dogs and pets just makes them a good pet and we seem to forget that in this age of social media. There are some really good ideas for taking our FFBF with us and enjoying the outdoors and our socializing at the same time. Many doggie day cares offer exercise clinics for us with our pet as part of the program. Many running groups offer the opportunity to take our friend with us.

If you can’t find what you are looking for on the internet in our locale, why not begin our own? This is an activity taking hold all over the country. And if you are one of those folks still looking for work, this might be your opportunity to start a company. Use search engines like exercise with your dog, dog walking for exercise, social network with your dog, any of these will get you started; or if that is feeling comfortable finding this activity by calling the local ‘Y’ or community center or parks center. Exercise is a great New Year’s Resolution and very healthy activity.
