If you are a proud dog owner you can relate to the feeling of excitement derived from seeing your dog in a good shape and mood which is a feeling non-owners/lovers won't understand. We get a thrill and mostly positive outcomes from walking with our dogs, most notably, this is a feeling of “happiness”.
Walking your dog is mentally stimulating, and a way to physically exercise your body too, it also gives a chance to socialize, and opportunities for behavioral training the dog. And you know those times you want to let the dog know that you are pleased with him, you just reach down and give him a gentle rub behind his ears. To sustain this, please be proactive with your dog care not reactive by prioritizing prevention over treatment.
