National Walk Your Dog Day is February 22, 2014. Will You Walk Your Dog Tomorrow?





Will you walk your dog somewhere special this week? What about committing to an extra mile or a hike every day? Your pooch will love you for it!


Tomorrow is Walk Your Dog Day.  It is a day that was put aside to bring attention to let people know how important it is to get out and walk your dog.  All dogs LOVE to go out for a walk.  It is in their blood.  They need and crave it.  They need to walk and smell all the wonders in the world.  It is a small thing that you can do for your pet.

Walking your dog on a daily basis not only increases the endorphin’s in both human and canine brains {happy chemicals} but it improves the bond between the two”.

Dogs need an outlet to release their tremendous amounts of energy. Too much built-up energy can result in destructive behavior or separation anxiety. Taking your pooch for a 20-30 minute walk every day is not only good for their physical and mental health, but will also help spend their energy in a productive way

Dogs are social animals, and it is believed that humans were able to domesticate them due to their social nature. That’s why it is imperative that your pet be properly socialized. Going for walks will help your dog learn how to interact with other dogs and people in your neighborhood.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, more than 40 percent of dogs…a total of about 17 million in the United States, are overweight. “If you walk your dog just 30 minutes a day, you will meet national recommendations for heart health.   Asking your children to accompany you by walking the dog themselves while you supervise, will set them up for a better chance that they will continue to not only crave physical exercise, but that they will be responsible dog stewards when they’re adults.”
