There are plenty of exercises you can do with your dog, and the health benefits are plentiful for the both of you. Here’s a list of the top three, but the only limit on great exercise with your pet, is your imagination. These exercises are fun, easy, and will provide both mental stimulation and long-term health benefits to you and your dog. So, what are you waiting for, get up and move…and don’t forget your pooch (or you Pet Pail)!

The old classic, walking, is a perfect exercise for both you and your dog. The benefits of walking for you include lower blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease, combating joint pain, plus it can also help strengthen your bones. For your pup, a walk will help them maintain their weight, combat hyperactivity or even help with behavioral problems. A simple 30 minute walk every day is all it takes to reap all these health benefits. If you want to up the pace a bit, and if your dog can handle it, you can always try jogging instead.

Swimming with your dog can be a great, low impact exercise. You can even use toys while you play to encourage a more interactive Dog Exerciseexperience for the both of you. Simply toss a ball or other favorite (floatable) toy in the water and watch your dog go nuts! The health benefits of swimming for you, include building endurance as well increased muscle and heart strength. For your pet, swimming will help burn excess energy. Whether you take your dog to the dog beach or have a pool at home, this is an incredible exercise for the both of you.

Hiking is a perfect exercise to share with your dog. Dogs love the outdoors and exploring, hiking provides both. Hiking has similar health benefits to walking, but with added bonuses. The fresh air, trees and other terrain you experience when hiking can help center you. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of daily life can reduce stress and recharge your battery. You dog will love sniffing around and discovering new sights and scents not typically found around his home. Hiking can be a great bonding exercise for you and your dog.

While you’re on the go with your pet, don’t forget to bring your My Pet Pail. My Pet Pail is perfect for long walks or hikes, even a day at the dog park. Since you can pack everything your dog will need for the day in one place, you can go about your exercise worry free.
