Exercising your dog!
08 September 2017
Walking your dog is great exercise for both you and your dog, and how much does your dog like playing ball. However, Jan Hare our guest blog writer explains that this may not be a harmless activity… as Jan says…
Please be aware that repetitive ball throwing for dogs can cause many avoidable injuries – some very serious. The article Think before throwing explains the pitfalls of ‘playing ball’. Try to be creative when playing with your dog. Remember that mental stimulation is equally as important to your dog as physical stimulation and will tire your dog more quickly than a romp in the field.
Wise words from Jan, equal mental and physical stimulation is just as important in humans as it is in dogs!
