exercise with dog tips

Does your dog need more exercise? Could you use some more as well? Why not get fit together? Dogtopia’s canine behaviorist Colleen Demling-Riley recently shared some tips for getting in shape with your pup with Men’s Health.

If you and your dog aren’t used to hardcore workouts, Demling-Riley suggests starting small. “Exercise is exercise. So you don’t have to start off by taking them on a five-mile hike. They’re going to hate it, you’re going to hate it. Everyone’s gonna hate it.” Try to extend your daily walks, or start by jogging a half a mile and walking a half mile.
