Yards or dog walks to exercise your dog?

Do you have a safe yard for your dog?  If so, does your dog really need to go for a walk? Canine exercise requirements depend on the type of dog as well as it’s age and physical condition. It also depends on what kind of exercise the dog is getting in the yard. Are  you tossing one of his toys around, is he chasing squirrels or is he just lying down and resting?  Taking your dog for a walk could be good for his physical and mental health. It may also provide a welcome change of environment.  He experiences new sights, sound and smells. Maybe he’ll even meet a new dog in the neighborhood. It’s good for you to walk your dog for bonding purposes. It also gives you a little exercise as well. Plus remember, dogs make a great conversation piece. So maybe, just by walking your dog, you’ll meet the person of your dreams! Remember, your pets count!
