The Importance of Walking a Dog
Walking a dog can help them maintain a healthy weight and help keep prevent health problems. It can help a dog that is high strung to be calmer. Dogs need to have a harness on, so you have more control of them. Larger dogs need more exercise than smaller ones. You should start walking them when they are puppies. My dog named Mason, used to be overweight, but I started walking him everyday. He is now at a normal weight and every time I ask him if he wants to go on a walk, he gets excited. I use a retractable leash that locks and he always wear a harness, so I have more control of him.
