New Year’s Petsolution: Get in Shape

If you're like me, getting more active is high up on your to-do list! Many dog owners underestimate the amount of exercise each pooch needs. Even with a fenced-in area for your pup to frolic in, you both can still benefit from a nice walk. Now city pooches will need more exercise than this to simply do their business, their country cousins should also get at least one 20 minute walk a day. It's a good way to guarantee you'll stick to those resolutions because the pooch reinforces your commitment – he's depending on you and adding that doggone variable can make the difference between getting up and going, and skipping it for just one more day. Hopefully over time, walking will become a habit and you'll start choosing to walk places for daily errands . . . with or without the dog.
