The Pet Spa at Soap.Club, supplier of premium quality natural pet shampoo, based out of Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, outlines the significant role that regular exercise plays in the health of the modern canine.
Most every breed of dog has been bred for a particular purpose, herding, hunting and protection to name but a few. The wild relatives of the modern canine lead a complex life, involving social interaction, constant walking, hunting, and problem solving skills necessary for their survival. Our domesticated friends on the other hand, are usually adopted for one purpose; companionship. This often results in a more sedentary lifestyle which leaves no outlet for their naturally active tendencies, both physical and mental. According to Jack Widmer manager of The Pet Spa at Soap.Club: ”Exercise is vital to the continual good health of a canine, yet many dog parents may not realize that regular exercise also has a significant effect on a dog’s behaviour. Puppies in particular have an abundance of energy, if they aren’t given the opportunity to burn it off the result is often destructive behaviour”.
Dogs like familiarity and little variety in their exercise routines. Most dogs need 30 to 60 minutes of exercise a day and there are a number of ways to make sure they are getting their daily requirement.
All dog parents recognize routine walks as a necessary and enriching activity for their dogs. Walking is an opportunity for their best friends to check out favorite spots in the neighborhood and to relieve themselves outside of the home. Habitual walking is the major social interaction between a modern canine and other dogs. Dog parks offer a place for off-leash exercise and opportunities to romp with other dogs. While daily walks are crucial, they are usually not enough to meet the minimum exercise requirements of a dog.
Doggie Day Care
Many working dog parents have no choice but to leave their loyal companions at home during work hours. Pack animals, however, don’t do well when left alone all day, they require lots of physical and social activity. A marvelous way for pets to be active during the day is for them to attend doggie day care. Canine day care facilities provide plenty of mental stimulation and physical exercise. A wealth of local K-9 day care facilities can be found on line.
Mr. Widmer states: “while not an actual physical exercise for the pet, regular bathing should be considered an exercise to follow regularly as part of an implemented Pet Health Management System”. Hygienic grooming on a scheduled basis not only keeps a pet comfortable, it improves their mental state and thus their behavior. It is central to a dog’s good physical health and the health of family members. Many dog lovers have discovered the multiple benefits of using a natural pet shampoo and conditioner in the bathing regime of their loyal companion. “The proprietary formulation of The Pet Spa Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo and Conditioner is rich in vitamins and antioxidants to help make sure a pet's delicate, sensitive, or itchy skin is healthier, firmer, and well-moisturized” says Widmer.
Interaction with family members is what counts most to dogs. Our best friends love their family and are usually ‘all in’ when it comes to spending time with them. The bottom line is that playtime is fun time for dogs, they do not identify this activity as work or exercise and hardly ever need coaxing to participate. Teaching a dog tricks will engage their minds as well as their bodies. Retrieving thrown toys, and running up and down the stairs together are natural activities for a canine.
Mr. Widmer advises: “A daily exercise routine for canines can be a lot of fun for both the animal and the pet owner. Plus it provides many benefits that keep the pet healthy, happy and agile.” Exercise is an essential component of responsible dog care.
