Walking & Sitting
A study by Michigan State University showed that people who walk their dogs are 34% more likely to meet expected levels of exercise, with a recommended level of 150 minutes of activity such as dog walking per week.
Besides, research conducted by the University of Western Australia has suggested that a higher rate of dog walking within a community tends to cause more interpersonal relationships within that community. The research suggested that people in the community would acknowledge and greet other people in the street, and exchange favors with neighbors, which could possibly encourage more exercise in the community, by giving pets and owners a chance at a healthier lifestyle.
Consider your dog as a family member
Like children, dogs also require of our loving care. In every home, dogs and children play together and share a lot of happy times during their childhood. Dogs get so mingled in our lives that it is not easy to plan for a travel or a vacation without considering the welfare of our pet. Even when going to the supermarket or visiting some friends, we plan in the function of our adopted pet. According to a survey published in Scientific American Mind, 90% of pet owners consider their pet part of the family.
Dogs convey so much happiness to our lives that frequently we register them under our family’s name. In fact, dogs usually are our most loyal companions all through their relatively short lives.
A healthy mind in a healthy body.
Our dogs, as well as ourselves, require periodic exercise. If you must walk your dog, you could combine the physiological purpose of your tour with some mutually enjoyable exercise. Bring some toy such as a frisbee or a ball to play with your dog. Exercising will better your health, will reduce your levels of stress and will create a superb sense of gratitude from your dog for the good moment spent with you.
