People who walk their dogs are typically more physically active in other ways like biking, swimming or surfing. You may walk 28 percent faster with a dog than alone but only 4 percent faster if you walk with another person. Dogs are the perfect walking buddies and don't come up with excuses to skip a workout.
Walks are great physical exercise, but they're also a great way to keep our dogs mentally stimulated. Since most of our dogs stay at home while we work their walk represents the one time of day they get to go out and explore. Make it more exciting and enjoyable for them by letting them sniff and check things out.
