A daily brisk walk can help you and your dog to get on the right path to a healthier and happier life.

TIPS FOR YOU

  • Turn your walk into a workout.
  • Concentrate on posture, intensity and purposeful movements to increase calorie burn.
  • Swing arms freely with a slight bend at elbow (pumping action is good.)
  • Concentrate on a smooth stride and walk fast enough to elevate breathing and heart rate.

TIPS FOR YOUR DOG

  • Help your dog get the most out of his/her workout.
  • Use a leash, his head should be up (no sniffing.)
  • Your dog should be to the side or behind you, not in front pulling.
  • Get your dog to walk fast enough to elevate breathing and calorie burn.
