Benefits of Exercise for Your Dog

bowwowlabelWe all know that exercise is essential to a healthy lifestyle but what about exercise and pets? The benefits of exercise for pets are similar to the benefits to humans, but pet exercise benefits humans as well.  First lets look at the benefits for our canine companions:

  • Improves blood flow to the heart
  • Improves oxygen flow to the lungs
  • Builds strong muscles
  • Increases joint mobility
  • Increases energy levels
  • Helps control weight
  • Enhances quality of life

Benefits for humans:

  • No more bored dogs! A bored dog is a naughty dog!
  • Relieves separation anxiety
  • Provides an appropriate outlet for energy

When you exercise your dog at Camp you also reap the benefits of socialization. The mental and physical stimulation that your dog receives at Camp will make for a well behaved dog at home. And becoming part of the pack means your dog will become confident and well socialized and learn how to play with other dogs and interact appropriately.

If you’re looking for a way to join your Camper for some exercise check out one of the local dog parks or take a nice long walk.
