Better Behavior at Home
When dogs, especially high-energy ones, don’t get to go on regular walks, their pent-up energy creates anxiety in them. This leads to them being restless at home.
As a result, some dogs release this energy by chewing on furniture or barking excessively. In addition, they may also behave aggressively and hostile towards other dogs.
Walking your dog helps to release this energy and reduce anxiety to ensure better behavior.
More Acclimatized to Outdoor Environments
Regular walks and socializing should be introduced from young. Otherwise, your dog will become fearful when they step outdoors at a later stage, making it hard to walk them.
In some cases, they might become aggressive towards other dogs and even humans.
Improves Physical and Emotional Health
On top of keeping your dog healthy and fighting obesity, regular walking also releases endorphins that make them feel happy.
Even Smaller and Older Dogs Need Walking
Many of us think that smaller and older dogs don’t have to go for walks. Well, that’s not true.
Depending on their breed and health conditions, all dogs need the right amount and pace of exercise.
For older dogs, slow-paced walking helps exercise their joints to keep them healthy, both physically and mentally.
