Diet and Exercise, the Perfect Combo for Your Pooch
It comes at us from everywhere — social media, doctor’s office, magazine articles, blogs — you name it and every time you turn around someone is telling you eat right and exercise to look great, feel great and live forever!
Turns out, our furry friends are getting the same advice from veterinarians and those in the know about out canine pals. Turns our regular exercise and a balanced diet are two crucial factors that contribute to a dog’s happiness and health.
Dogs are naturally active animals and while the amount of exercise they needs varies by age, breed and personality, they all need to get off the couch and take a walk at least once a day.
How do you know your pooch needs a walk?
Restless and fidgety dogs are looking for something to do. They have excess energy and need to burn it off.
Walks are interesting for dogs and when they get bored in the house they can get destructive. Couch cushions, shoes and throw pillows are just a few of their favorite targets for chewing disasters.
Hyper, overexcited dogs need an outlet for all that energy.
And if Fido has put on a few pounds, it’s definitely time to start routine walks.
Importance of Regular Exercise
This advice goes for humans as well…regular exercise can make a world of difference in your physical, emotional and mental health.
Regular exercise will help keep the weight off.
Outdoor walks provide mental stimulation and help prevent boredom, which will lead to a happier and healthier pup.
Regular exercise can also help reduce undesirable behaviors such as excessive barking or digging.
And Now for the Diet
Once you’ve finished your walk, time to feed your pup. A well-balanced diet is pivotal in your dog’s overall health and organic () is the best you can do.
Organic dog food provides superior nutrition without synthetic additives. And the lack of harmful chemicals is better for your pooch’s digestive tract and helps reduce allergies and food sensitivities.
So make a pact with your dog to get some exercise and upgrade that diet! A daily exercise routine combined with a healthy organic diet can make a big difference — for both of you!
