Pet Services: Why Walking Your Dog Regularly Is Important, Ewa, Hawaii

Taking your dog for a walk is as essential as giving him meals and taking him to the pet doctor. While some facilities offer pet services that may include this activity, it is also important for dog owners to understand what exactly this does for you and your pet.

Regular walks are a good form of exercise that promotes cardiovascular fitness and keeps your pet agile and limber. It also helps prevent obesity, which puts them at risk of high cholesterol and lipid levels, gastrointestinal diseases, and joint complications.

Pet ServicesIf your dog is timid or fearful, taking him out for a walk might bring him out of his shell, as this will expose him to other pets and new surroundings. This is also a good opportunity to get him potty-trained or to teach him some tricks.

Walking your dog also benefits you directly. Any amount of time you spend with your pet strengthens your bond with him and enhances trust. It also reduces your dog’s hyperactivity and destructive behavior, which might be the best news for your furniture.
