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 :)
