Dog walking tips
Taking a walk around the neighborhood is great exercise for you and your dog! Here are a few things to keep in mind during your walk:
- On sunny summer days, concrete roads and sidewalks can be very rough and hot on your pet's paws. Try to walk your dog in the grass or on dirt paths as much as you can.
- If it's very hot or cold outside, keep your walk short or play indoor fetch with your dog instead.
Watch your pet to make sure he/she isn't getting too tired. If your dog looks worn-out, it's time to head home.
- Give your dog plenty of fresh water before and after your walk or run.
