Dog walking

Saturday, January 28, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Walking is “hard wired” into a dog’s brain.  When dogs were in the wild, they walked to form a pack, hunted for food and followed the decisions of the pack leader.  The top dog is called the alpha dog, it takes charge and leads the way.  By following a similar ritual with your dog, you can establish and maintain your position as the leader of your small pack.  In order to accomplish this effectively, you have to assert yourself as a calm leader and ask your dog to follow.  You must also keep him safe at all times, in order to maintain his trust. By taking daily walks with your dog, you’ll stimulate his natural instinct to get out side and get moving. You’ll also make him go safe and secure and form a strong and loving bond as well as  provide, good, healthy exercise.

Remember, your pets count!
