Exercises; Especially for Dogs

Moderate walking twice a day.

Swimming with your dog or tossing a flexible toy or ball that floats on the water for him to fetch. Swimming is especially good for arthritic dogs since it is a low-impact activity – and that means less jarring of joints.

Fetching on land with a favorite toy.

If you prefer inside games, try hide and seek. A human-canine form of hide and seek is an effective and fun way for your dog to use his scenting abilities and it’s great exercise. It also promotes that special bond between owner and dog. Best of all, your dog is always “it” and likes it!!
