Posted on 5 March, 2018 at 1:55

Advantages of regular exercise for your dog

The advantages of providing your dog with regular walks and exercise include helping to prevent injury by keeping the muscles supporting the bones and tendons strong.It also increases the cardiovascular system and reduces fat preventing obesity and helps maintain a healthy weight. For overall health, it improves gastrointestinal regularity, strengthens the immune system and improves sleeping and eating patterns. The psychological benefits to your dog are that it provides mental stimulation and enrichment and prevents behavior issues like jumping up, digging, chewing and nuisance barking.


Consequences of not providing regular exercise for your dog

The consequences of not providing adequate regular exercise and walks for your dog are that it can result in a dog that is unhealthy, bored, frustrated and just plain unhappy. Most excessive barking, chewing, jumping, digging and running away behavioral problems are caused by boredom and pent-up energy. It’s like living with a time bomb! You never know when it will go off…or how much damage it will do. The cost isn’t just in terms of property as the cost to your dog’s psychological health and ultimately physical health and could cost you a lot more in vet costs and dog trainers to fix their behavioral problems and health issues.
