July 18, 2008, Newsletter Issue #245: Exercising my Dog

Tip of the Week

There are so many wonderful ways to exercise your dog and build a close relationship. Most dogs love being active and doing things with their owners.

One of the easiest ways to exercise your pet is to take a walk with her each day. If you walk briskly and go far enough, you and your pet will get a good amount of exercise.

If you have a big backyard or good fenced-in area, play an active game of chase and retrieve with a ball or rubber bone, a natural for your breed of dog. You can also teach your dog to catch and return a Frisbee. The amount of chasing, jumping and returning your dog does will be good exercise.

Another good way to get your dog exercise is to pick up a competitive sport. Try learning about the sport of agility. Even if you never enter the competitions, you might train your dog in some of the jumps. Along with exercise, you'll forge a stronger bond with you canine.
