Hi my four-legged friends and neighbors,
I’m Lexi, The Lauras dog. I grew up in the neighborhood too and I noticed there’s lots of dogs like me in this part of town.
So, thought I’d share some cool stuff with you…
Exercise is as important for your dog as it is for you. It’s often said that dogs are a lot like people. Walking is one of the healthiest and most effective forms of exercise, both for humans and canines. Researchers have found that 70% of dog owners get at least 150 minutes of exercise every week, while only 40% of non-owners get an equivalent amount of exercise.
To get the best benefits of a walking program for both human and pet, plan on at least 30 minutes per day of walking.
And try to make it a daily routine.
If you walk at the same time every day, your dog will come to expect it. If you get lazy and try to slack off, your furry friend will give you a nudge!
