GREAT HEALTH BENEFITS FOR YOU & YOUR DOG !
IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH! Being outside and spending time with your favourite friend, has been proven to elevate your mood and give your mental health a huge boost, reducing anxiety and depression. In addition, there's an increase in mental sharpness which improves concentration and alertness.
IMPROVE YOUR PHYSICAL FITNESS! You'll improve your cardio and increase the strength of your heart which will help develop your stamina and endurance, resulting in higher energy levels, a boost to the immune system and reduced blood pressure. Not only that but you'll build and tone muscle whilst increasing and preserving bone mass which will encourage healthy bones, joints and ligaments. The result is a longer, heathier life!
HELPS CONTROL YOUR WEIGHT! Perhaps both you and your dog would benefit from loosing a few extra pounds? Maintaining a healthy weight increases your energy levels and improves biological age and quality of life!
IMPROVES YOUR SLEEP! Exercise will help you both sleep better and your dog will be more restful and content during the day.
IMPROVES YOU DOG'S BEHAVIOUR! Stress effects us all, including your dog! Exercise releases energy, resulting in a more relaxed dog who's less likely to vent their energy in destructive or negative ways.
GREAT FOR BONDING! This is a great opportunity to reinforce commands and teach new ones whilst having lots of fun together. As your bond grows and you both become more familiar with the routine, your dog's understanding of these commands will improve and as you both get fitter you'll both grow in confidence and build self-esteem.
OPPORTUNITY TO SOCIALISE! Whilst you're out, Fido will develop the necessary social skills he needs to interact in a positive way with other dogs, along with the mental stimulation to keep him out of trouble! And the bonus is, you can make new friends too!
GREAT IF YOU'RE SHORT ON TIME! By combining 'walking the dog' with your workout, you'll save on time! Freeing your time up this way, means you'll be more productive and less stressed.
IT'S FUN & MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD! Not only do you get to spend more time doing something together, but exercise also makes you both feel good! Exercise releases endorphins which trigger a positive feeling in the body! Combined with the fact that dog's are great stress buster's anyway, this is a double whammy!
