    Dog Exercise Tips

    Articledog health and wellbeingWednesday 18 May 2011

    You should always remember that different dogs have different dog exercise requirements. Some dogs will need plenty of space so that they can run about while others will enjoy taking a gentle stroll. If you want to take your dog running with you then you will need to make sure that your dog is a breed that can stand extended duration exertion. Dogs need to have daily exercise but how much will depend on the age and the breed of dog. 

    Dog Exercise Activities to Avoid 

    You should avoid cycling with your dog because you might go too fast or too far without you realising that your dog is struggling to keep up with you. You should also avoid riding a horse while giving your dog exercise. If anything were to happen to your dog you wouldn’t be able to control both the dog and the horse. 

    Dog Exercises – Walking

     When you are walking your dog you should try to include some free running and interaction with other dogs. You can also take a toy along to give your dog some mental exercise. If you make dog exercises interesting then you will improve the bond between yourself and your dog.

    You should always make sure that your dog doesn’t disturb wildlife or livestock, if you think there might be a danger then put your dog on a lead. Make sure that your dog has a collar with your name, address and phone number on it.

    After Your Dogs Exercise  

    After the exercise for dogs you will have to check for grass seeds which are trapped between his toes. You should also check for ticks, cuts or grazes. If you have been walking your dog in winter on pavements which have been covered in salt then you should always rinse off your dogs paws with warm water once you have finished walking.
