Active dogs are a happy dogs!
Don’t just have your dog in a cage…
If you don’t believe it, you try to sit in the cage for some days…
Take out your dog and show him around the world!
Is your dog active?
Remember, that active dogs help people to stay fit…
If you are too lazy to stay fit, don’t buy a dog, buy a dog statue!
Exercise is good for you and your dog. It will help keep your dog’s heart, lungs, and muscles strong and healthy
so he lives longer, and by the way, you too…
Generally speaking, a leashed walk around the block isn’t going to exercise your dog.
Most dogs need 30 to 60 minutes of exercise a day.
Some general rules of thumb:
- Active breeds need a minimum of 30 minutes of hard exercise most days of the week, preferably daily
- Not all toy or small breeds get enough exercise inside the house (contrary to popular belief).
Small dogs are prone to obesity and need much more exercise than they usually get.
- It’s not safe to go out in extremely hot or cold weather. During such periods, stay inside and teach tricks to engage your dog’s mind, throw toys, or run up and down the stairs together.
- Good exercise uses both mental and physical muscles.
Exploring a new hiking trail, for example, engages your dog’s mind as well as his body.
- Live by the philosophy that a tired dog is a good dog.

Tired dogs are good dogs!
Dogs make the best workout buddies.
They never complain about hills, or cancel on you last-minute.
And they’re always stoked to follow you out the door.
Some side effects?
Yes indeed! Your dog becomes more intelligent and you become healthier…
