Walk me, please

Just because you have a yard, it does not mean that your dog does not need to get out and see the world. Imagine how you would feel always cooped up in the same house and the same yard...bored, right? It might lead you to do some crazy things, like scratch the walls, or chew on shoes? Ok, maybe not you, but your dog might do those things.

Check out this article on the benefits of walking your dog regularly, even if you have an ample yard. Walking is not just for doing our business, we need to get out, stimulate our senses, and socialize with other dogs and people. But beware of blacktop in the summer, it can burn our pads!

Remember the training mantra: "a tired dog is a well behaved dog." So give us a little extra exercise, and it might make your life easier! I hear walking is good for humans too :)
