One of the things that I admire about one of my favorite clients is that they’re fun parents. In addition to having fur babies, they also have three small children. And they are fantastic at creating fun experiences for them.
They’re always on the floor or running around their home, playing some sort of fun or imaginary game with their kids. And I think that’s really cool.
Because when you’re having the time of your life with your favorite people, nothing else compares. Their kids will have fun and joyful memories of their parents that will carry them for many years to come.
And the same rings true if you’re a dog parent.
When you share fun-filled experiences with your dog, you create lasting memories that your dog will never forget.
These experiences will also bring joy and happiness to you as well as forge an unbreakable bond with your dog.
When you make a dog happy, you have a friend for life. And dogs have such little time with us, so why not give them the time of their lives whenever possible.
So even if your dog is currently a couch potato, I will encourage you to try some of the fun activities that follow. You’d be amazed at how just mixing things up a bit can awaken your dog’s inner spark.
It’s all about engaging your dog to see what makes them tick.
And in general, trying some of the tips that follow will help you to see how fun and easy life with a dog can be. So let’s get started!
Many of you probably landed here because you’re a new dog parent and are a little confused about how much exercise your dog needs everyday. Some of you may just want to compare notes to see if you’re on the right track. And there is another group. You’re fully aware that you’re not giving your dog enough exercise, indicated by yet another pair of your favorite shoes left chewed up in the corner of a room.
So fortunately for you, I will have something of value to offer everyone.
There is no cut and dry answer to this question. But the bright side is that it’s not that complicated either. Here at The Dog Care Guide, we want to offer you sustainable tips for providing care for your beloved pups.
So even if you are the dog parent of a high energy working dog, don’t worry, I won’t suggest that you run five miles a day to meet your dog’s exercise needs.
Because that’s not sustainable unless you’re an athlete, and it’s apart of your daily routine. And running long distances may not be healthy for your dog. Also some dogs have boundless energy so they often require more than just physical exercise.
So skip the exercise calculator and breed exercise charts. A computer can’t determine how much exercise your dog needs. But you and your vet can.
So continue reading as we explore how you can determine how much exercise your dog needs and a simple way to implement a workout into your dog’s daily routine.
