16 Ways to Improve Your Dog's Walk

By : Samantha Meyers

While walking the dog might seem routine or even like a chore, walking time can be a great opportunity to connect, bond and share special moments with your dog. 

We've come up with a few ways to re-energize the walk for both you and your dog.

1. Be One with Nature

While it's easiest to just walk out your front door for a potty break, seeing the same sights day after day can get a little old. Mix it up and take your dog to a new park or trail. While this might not fit into your daily routine, it's a great weekend activity. Look in your area for dog-friendly trails, beaches or parks. Let your dog romp in the sand, listen to birds or roam through trees. Your dog will love the new smells and textures and will likely be worn out from the stimulation.

2. Take a Walk on the Town

Bring your dog with you to a dog-friendly shopping center, pet store or on a walk through town. If you can, walk to the groomer or to pick up dog food. This is a great time to practice training and social skills as you are likely to run into new people and situations. Click here for the full article
