Most  pet owners today enjoy the comfort of their furry family members. They’re always there to greet us when we get home, they provide the cuddles and warmth after a long day and offer companionship for our kids. There’s no doubt that pets have become a staple in many households. 

While you’re helping to make your dog or cat feel included in the family, to forget to also consider their needs. Like the desire to get their paws on the pavement and walking. This is especially true for dogs and large breeds. 

Here are 3 reasons you should take time to walk your dog. 

Overall Health

Many pups require physical activity each day to protect their joints, for heart health and for overall wellness. If you’re finding yourself too tired to take your dog on a walk or forgetting more often than not, you may want to reconsider. 

Socialization 

Getting your dog out and about is also a great way to ensure they have some time to socialize with other humans and animals. This is key to good behavior and letting your pup know its okay for others to approach you and be in their space as well. 

Improved Potty Time

Walking your dog is also a great way to improve their potty break schedules. Instead of quickly rushing them before mealtime, your dog digestive system will have time to work its natural course and they will feel better overall.
