Walking the dog is the sacred duty of its owner. Daily walks provide the animal with the necessary physical activity, provide an opportunity to satisfy its needs, and allow contact with other dogs. You need to walk your dog correctly.
It is necessary
- - collar, leash, muzzle;
- - a bottle of water;
- - Shoes for dogs.
Ask your familiar dog breeders if there is a specially equipped area for walking dogs near your house. If you can't find it, look for some wasteland, well, or something like that, far from public places.
If you want your pet to happily run and frolic in the fresh air, and not lazily trudge after you, go for a walk with him no earlier than two hours after feeding.
Take your dog out of the house with a short leash and a muzzle. Adhere to this rule when crossing the road, as well as when you are in public places and crowded places. Make sure the leash length you choose allows you to control your pet's actions.
Do not forget to bring a scoop and a bag with you in case your pet relieves the need without having to wait until the specially designated area for this. Keep the site clean as well.
Do not restrict your dog's movements while walking on a special area. Indeed, in order for the animal to be healthy, it must be given physical activity suitable for its age and condition. Be prepared for the fact that you also have to practice a little.
Keep in mind that during a walk, after running around and playing enough, the dog will probably want to drink. Bring a water bottle with you if you don't want your pet to quench its thirst in muddy puddles.
When walking, do not get too close to aggressive dogs. This will avoid conflicts and hassles between your pet and others.
Before a long walk, be sure to check the weather forecast for the day. Traveling a decent distance during the heat of summer can be very exhausting for your pet.
You can protect your dog's paws from freezing and injury in the cold season by using special dog shoes. It is better to give preference to durable reliable covers, rather than lightweight boots of a fancy shape.
