LOS ANGELES, CA, May 1, 2022 – It’s no secret that exercise is important for our health, but did you know that it’s just as important for our furry friends? In Good Housekeeping’s May issue, the expert dog trainers from Zoom Room share insights on how to keep your pup in shape and why exercise is important for our canine friends.
Every dog is different, so pay attention to their pace and their behavior after the exercise sessions. If they’re lethargic, panting excessively, limping, or walking stiffly, dial it down next time.
Consistency is key: Similar to the way proper training can prevent injury in someone who is new to, say, running, a daily exercise regimen keeps your pet in good shape and can help them avoid injuries.
As with people, older dogs generally don’t move as fast as younger ones, and pets who haven’t been exercising regularly need to condition their muscles for longer sessions. That’s especially true if they’re carrying extra weight or they have any health conditions, regardless of age. Extra wear and tear on overloaded joints can contribute to arthritis and increase the risk of acute injuries like torn knee ligaments. If your pet has been sedentary for a while, start with short, slow walks or play sessions and build up over time.
Exercise isn’t just good for your pet’s physical health – it also has mental benefits. Dogs who get enough exercise are less likely to develop behavioral problems like separation anxiety and destructive chewing. And just like people, dogs who get regular exercise are happier and more relaxed.
So what’s the bottom line? A healthy dog is a happy dog – so get out there and get moving!
