Exercising Your Puppy

All dogs of all ages, including puppies, require exercise. Otherwise they are going to become overweight and have a lot of health issues. How to start? This article will tell you every thing you need to know about puppy exercise.

1. First of all, ensure your puppy’s collar is on before taking any walk. In case the puppy’s collar is not on, make sure you put his/her collar on him/her.

2. After your puppy’s collar is on, next put on his harness. Make certain the harness is put on the dog tightly, but as gentle as possible so you avoid choke your puppy.

3. After your puppy’s harness is on, connect a doggy leash to his collar or harness and then you should be all good and set to go!

4. Go outside and walk further down the street. You should walk for a minimum of 22 minutes, it gives both you and your puppy exercise. After 22 full minutes, turn back and head home.

5. When you are home, take your puppy inside and offer him a bone or a snack and a nice big bowl of water – your puppy may be hungry and thirsty after that long walk!
