Did you know… January is ‘Walk Your Dog Month’? 🐕
After some much-needed rest and relaxation over the Christmas period, January is the time for you and your pups to get out into the air and stretch your legs. It is important for dogs of all ages to get out of the house, even if for as little as 15 minutes a day. Daily walks are proven to improve dogs physical and mental wellbeing, as well as reduce boredom and as a result, troublesome behaviour. The benefits to walking your dog daily include, but are not limited to:
- Improved weight and body condition
- Improved joint health
- Improved digestive and urinary health
- Better mental health
- Better emotional health
- Relieving built up energy
Whilst you walk your dog, we recommend taking some of our Alpha Spirit treats, to reward good behaviour and provide an extra burst of energy. Our 50g Snack Bags, which come in 6 flavours, are the perfect size to fit in your pocket.
Not only is walking good for dogs, but daily walking improves our own mental and physical health, proving that a dog walk a day benefits us all! Make the most of this Walk Your Dog Month and treat yourself and your pet to daily walks.
