With the warmer months upon us, what better time to get outside and exercising with your four-legged friend? Dog walking has many benefits to both pooch and owner, including building trust, preventing destructive behaviours and keeping you healthy too.

When out and about with your furry companion there are a few things to remember, such as:

  • Always keep an eye on your dog, especially around kids
  • Have plastic bags on hand to clean up after any messes
  • Don’t allow your pet to harass or chase any wildlife or farm animals

As every dog and owner are different, why not take a look at the Sainsburys Bank guide to Creative Canine Fitness, posted below. It features a number of unusual exercises that you and your dog can do together, indoors and out.
