Hello friends! I have write many articles to improve the health of a dog and I have always talked about taking your dog on long walks. So today I decided to discuss this topic in detail with you. So the focus point of our discussion is Benefits Of Daily Walk In Your Dog’s Life. So lets start discussion. You can also read our article on Things Required To Make Your Dog Better.
What Is A Routine or Daily Walk?
All of us who owned a dog took their dog to walk and it is normal thing. But the walk I am talking here is different from the walk that we give to our dog. First of all take a look at the walk we give to our dog.
Daily Walk we give to our dog is short in length, we take our dog to maximum of 1-2 kms and second major difference is speed, we walk according to our convinience not to give a exercise to our dog. And the last major difference is casuality, we do not give it utmost priority, whenever someone who is known to us met on the way, we stop to talk with him or sometimes even suspended tge walk. The one word conclusion is that we do not start it with purpose of improving health of our dog.
Daily Walk which is the main focus of our todays discussion has only motive just to improve the health of our dog.
Why It Is Required?
Suppose I do not have enough time to give my dog proper exercise but I want to make him healthy, you can read our article on Conditioning A Dog and you will understand it needs lot of time and care. So following a Conditioning Plan is not possible for me but I want to make my dog healthy. One solution that left for you is daily walk. It needs lesser time but very helpful in maintaining and improving health of a dog.
So lets talk about conditions of this.
The walk which is given to improve the health of a dog has following condition:-
Distance is the key point of routine or daily walk. If you want good results from it than you should take your dog for atleast 5 km walk. Lesser than this will not serve your purpose. You can increase it to the level where you feel comfortable. Ao if you are planning for this thin distance is the most important part of it.
While giving a walk to your dog it is natural that you have to walk too or you can ride on a bi-cycle, but take in mind that walk should be as fast as you could walk. Slower walk will not serve the purpose, but it does not mean that I am asking to give run to your dog. It should be between running and normal walk.
3. The Way You Take It
This point is also a very important point, it depends upon you that how much importance you give to this walk. Do you stopping during this walk and letting your dog to slow down, as anything to whom you do not take seriously never pays you back. So it is must that you should take at serious with the purpose of improving health of your dog.
4. Can You Optimize It
There are maby ways that you can include into daily walk to optimize the result. Like you can give some running during it, you can make ypur dog to jump etc. So an innovative owner can optimize this time to increase the fitness level of dog.
