Start Small With Dog Walks

Small steps can really add up…literally! Take the time to walk your dog another block or two around the neighborhood, or for a few extra minutes when you take them outside to the bathroom. Even a few extra minutes of walking each day will add up throughout the week to keep you and your pet outdoors and more active.

Play Fetch

Sure, your dog will get a little more exercise than you, but playing fetch is a great pastime  your pup will love. Hit up your local dog park or a nearby fenced in area with a few tennis balls or a Frisbee and have fun; your dog is sure to enjoy this type of exercise!

Take a Hike
