In a very recent research, it was found that around 50% of dog parents do not walk their dogs everyday. That is a staggering statistic that needs to be changed. It would seem that people are not aware of the many benefits of walking their dogs. In fact, to make it worse, over 33% said they never walk their dogs. That begs for serious dog-walking-awareness.
Many studies have been conducted on the benefits of walking dogs and humans. In fact, having a dog should encourage more dog owners to walk often; beside their dogs. This is because of the benefits that come into play as a result of walking your dog.
A lot of adults spend their days sitting somewhere working. Unless you are an athlete or your job involves walking from one place to another, it is very possible you don’t walk enough during your days.
However, walking has been found to have many benefits. For dogs and human beings, walking helps reduce weight. It is proven that a 30 minute walk three times per week can lead to reduced blood pressure, increased energy levels, lowered weight by 5% for humans and 15% for dogs, and an overall improvement in well-being.
