3 Ways to Make Dog Walking More Fun
There are easy ways to make dog walking more fun. It's all about mixing up routines and keeping your dog happy and engaged. It can be easy to become stuck in a rut! Here are 3 easy ways to make your next dog walk more fun.
Change your walking routine
Shake things up! Look at how you can change your usual walking routine. Do you always walk on the same streets? Do you go to the same park? If your dog can lead the way, it might be time for a change. Jump in the car and try a new park. Try a different direction than you normally do. Sometimes we don’t realise how beneficial change can be until we actually try it. What do you have to lose?
Many dogs will stop on a walk to smell their surroundings. This can be a source of frustration for the walker. A sniffing dog will slow down the pace and can take you off track. However, dogs love to sniff and explore. It’s a source of stimulation. So slow down and let them take in their surroundings.
Find a walking buddy
Teaming up with another dog owner can be a great idea. Firstly, your pooch will have another dog to interact with. This can be great for socialisation as well as engagement. Obviously, you want to make sure the dogs get along first. In addition, you too will have someone to interact with. This is a really easy way to make a big change to your dog walking routine.
Most dog owners need to walk their dogs regularly. Rather than it being a chore, try these techniques to keep it fresh and exciting. Walking should be fun. You want your dog to enjoy their walks so they are eager and maintain regular exercise. On top of that, dog waking should be enjoyable for you as well.
