Daily Dog Exercises That You Can Do at Home

Not all pet owners can afford to send their dogs to boot camps or workout clubs for pets. But there’s no reason to just let dogs skip their daily exercise and pamper them with food and sleep, thinking that it can help them be healthy. It’s a big NO. Food and sleep are indeed necessary for every living thing, but remember too much is really bad. Don’t grow your pooch round like a big watermelon. It may look cute, but it can be very dangerous. If you can’t make it up to a workout club for your dog, it’s better to make your own dog exercise routine.

Beagle Chasing A Ball Dog ExerciseIf there’s no chance that you can come to workout clubs, your dog can actually do its daily exercises at home. Set dog fitness goals and help him reach them. Even without any training paraphernalia, your pooch stays fit and healthy as long as you help him get through natural exercises. Here are dog exercises you can do at home:

Walking

You may hear that walking 10,000 steps may help an individual lose weight and get rid of belly fat. Same with dogs, thought it wouldn’t be 10,000 steps, daily walking will keep them in good shape. Walking is the easiest way to exercise your dog. Keep him scheduled for 20-30 minutes, enough time to spend time together as well. You can stroll on streets, visit the park, or walk with other dogs in the neighborhood. In no time, your dog will be the one to take you for his scheduled walk.

Running

Running is the best natural exercise for your dog. Don’t let your dog run alone, run with your pooch. It will really be a healthy lifestyle for both of you. Take several rounds along the neighborhood or take your dog to the park. He can find a buddy to run and play around. But you should keep a list for your running activity. Bring the leash and plenty of water for your pal. Don’t let him dehydrate. Dog toys will also help. Let him run after soft balls or throw a saucer toy for him to catch. You won’t feel like you have spent all that hours playing with your pooch.

Swimming

If you maintain a swimming pool in your house, you can let your pooch swim and enjoy the therapy of water. It may be difficult at first because dogs may refuse to get into the water, but keep him secure and comfortable in your hands. Dogs need something to get their courage from, and that thing would be you. Always let your pal feel that he is safe and water is good for him. Just so you know, he’ll be a better swimmer than you.

Dogs get along easily with simple routines as long as you keep a regular schedule for them to instinctively remember. Your support and motivation are very important on this part. The dog will seek that satisfied happy emotion in your face as he finishes one exercise. First attempts may not be successful, but patience will help your pet get through the exercise. Same with people, dogs tend to cope with the environment and situation as much as possible. Do not force the dog because it’s not going to work, rather it will cause stress both to you and your buddy.

If time comes that you and your dog are ready to enter dog boot camps, it’ll be easier to cope with the number of trainings. Your pooch will not be something to worry about anymore because you’ve trained him ahead to follow certain routines. There are several dog boot camps where you can take your buddy. K9 Fit Club is not just good for your pooch but also perfect to take time for your fitness goals.
