Escondido, CA, October 02, 2014 - (PR.com) - October 1 - 7, 2014 is recognized as 'National Walk Your Dog Week'. While walking your dog should be practiced on a regular, daily basis, National Walk Your Dog Week provides an opportunity to stress the many physical, emotional, behavioral and health benefits of getting out to exercise with your best four-legged friend.
The benefits of walking your dog are numerous and include providing your dog with exercise, which can help decrease your dog's chances of becoming overweight, reduce boredom and destructive behavior, diminish stress and anxiety and help you bond with your pet. Unfortunately many people avoid walking their dog because it becomes a chore rather than time they can enjoy together. According to Sylvia and Danny Wilson, who founded Bark Busters in Australia in 1989, "Many dog owners tell us that walking their dogs becomes a battle of wills, and they lose control of their dogs either with pulling, barking, or simply lacking focus." The Wilson's also added, "Some dog owners would like to get out and about more but say they've had negative experiences, including interaction with unfriendly dogs which frightened them."
Bark Busters, the World's Largest Dog Training Company provides these tips to consider when walking your dog:
Whether during National Walk Your Dog Week or any day of the year, take advantage of the many benefits that walking your dog provides. At the very least, your dog will appreciate you more for getting him out of the house and spending time with his 'best friend'.
