October 1-7 is National Walk Your Dog Week, an event designed to raise awareness about the importance of regular exercise for your dog’s health.
According to the official website, many dogs (and their humans) do not get enough exercise, which can lead to health problems like obesity as well as behavioral problems that arise from boredom and separation anxiety.
You can take the pledge to walk your dog for at least 30 minutes every day for one week. The folks at National Walk Your Dog Week want to hear from dog owners who have taken up this challenge. Chances are both you and your dog will be feeling better!
