Having a physically healthy and active life is a habit that many people want to have, and if you have a dog as a pet, exercising with him will keep you both happier and healthier.
Although some breeds require more intense exercise than others, all dogs need to exercise every day; even the calmest ones enjoy a good walk or a game session to burn off energy.
If your dog is not used to exercising, we recommend that you first take him to the vet for evaluation and once he gives you the go-ahead, start training little by little.
Running is an activity in which more people participate with their pets every day as they are excellent companions and are widely benefited from this sport. Young, large-breed, short-haired, long-snouted dogs are excellent for this type of exercise.
We recommend using an ergonomic harness for exercise sessions and not the strap you usually use to take it out for a walk and avoid the hottest hours of the day.
Another way to exercise with your dog is to ride a bike.
In fact, you can find a special adapter with which the strap is attached to the bike and thus both will enjoy a good session of movement. In this case, your dog needs to become familiar with the bicycle, for this, take short walks, but without getting on it. You should also teach him a simple command for when to turn, to avoid giving him an unexpected pull.
Patience and perseverance will be your best allies when practicing this sport.
Exercise is healthy for you, and if you have a partner, it will even be good for both of you. We tell you the benefits of exercising with your dog.
