For those who own pet dogs, walking the dog is something they should do every day. Regardless of raising cats or dogs, as well as all other types of pets, we must follow correct and scientific breeding methods. Before we raise pets, we must fully learn their habits and ways of raising them. Sometimes our "kindness" is actually not a good thing for pets. For example, it is definitely not the right way to feed them human food with heavy salt.
In addition, for a dog, it is essential to go for a walk every day.
The following are the benefits of frequent dog walks.
1. Walking your dog can meet your dog's daily exercise needs
Dogs of any breed or non-breed require exercise. This amount is more or less, but every dog needs it, even the small apartment breeds. The best way to satisfy the dog's exercise is to walk the dog. Those with a large amount of exercise need to stay outside for longer, while a small amount of exercise does not have to go so far, but at least they have to walk around the community a few times to meet their needs.
The most basic requirement for walking a dog is to hold the leash, which is the life rope of the dog. It can protect the dog in all aspects, such as prevent them from eating dangerous things or once they are losing control we can call them back. There is also a great potential threat in the street, for example from passers-by who are afraid of dogs and may behave irrationally. Therefore, only loosen the leash and let your dog run free for a while in an open and safe area with few people. On crowded roads, you should still keep your dog on a leash and be a competent dog owner.
If the dog's exercise volume can not be satisfied, their energy will not be fully vented, then they will continue to make trouble at home. Many of the dogs who like to cause trouble and damage the furniture at home are caused by the lack of exercise. Therefore, walking the dog frequently can prevent the dog from making trouble at home to a certain extent.
2. Walking your dog can help it develop the habit of excreting outside
Many novice dog owners have a problem, which is also an entry problem for dog owners, and that is how to train their dogs to excrete. In fact, it is a good way to walk the dog frequently. As long as they develop the habit of excreting outside, they will rarely urinate and defecate at home.
Dogs generally excrete soon after waking up in the morning and about half an hour after eating. Therefore, it is generally recommended that dog owners walk their dogs twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. When walking the dog outside, you can wait until the dog has excreted before going home. After a long time, the dog will understand that it is time to excrete. In addition, don’t forget to bring plastic bags or paper towels when walking the dog, pick up your dog’s poop and throw it into the trash can. After all, when we are caring for our pets, we should also be a competent dog owner.
3. Walking your dog can promote his good social skills
Socialization refers to the degree of adaptation of dogs to the living environment of modern cities, and it is quite necessary to cultivate them. Insufficiently socialized dogs appear to be uncomfortable, extremely timid or fierce, bullying and afraid of hardship, making passers-by nervous and scared, and they may even be evaluated as "doggy style". We believe this is an evaluation that all dog owners do not want to hear. A well-socialized dog can be emotionally stable even when facing strangers on various occasions, without being overly excited and nervous. Such a dog will not arouse the disgust of passers-by, and a stranger who likes a dog would say "this dog is so good". Although the evaluation of others is not the most important, having a well-behaved and generous dog can greatly improve the conflict between dog owners and non-dog owners. Walking the dog frequently and letting them come into contact with different environments and different people has a great effect on their socialization process. This is a virtuous circle.
4. Walking your dog will help it make more friends
Walking your dog regularly allows your dog to meet more doggy friends, such as your dog and other dogs near by, who are more like 'peers' and have their own way of communicating. Walking your dog will increase the chances of your dog meeting other dogs, which in the long run will make your dog happier. And it's not just the dog, you can also meet more dog owners, so you can share the experiences and your dog's favorite toys and treats.
5. Walking your dog can deepen the relationship between you and him
Dogs all like to go out and play, and they all like to be with their owners. Walking the dog is a perfect combination of the two. Walking the dog itself allows the dog to move around outside. If the dog owner can spare time to walk the dog every day, the dog will be very happy! If this continues, the relationship between the dog and the dog will gradually deepen and become the best partner in the relationship!
