Spring is in the air – get moving, walk your dog!

Spring is a wonderful time of the year. We see new growth on the trees, flowers are pushing their heads out to enjoy the sunshine and the smells are amazing in the spring.

No wonder dogs simply love springtime walks the most. Considering that a dog’s nose is something like 300% more efficient than ours, imagine what they are smelling!

Spring is in the air, look at the big smile!

Besides a great chance to bond, walking your dog has so many benefits for both of you.

For you:

  • Increased cardio brings good heart health
  • Nature increases your sense of well-being and mental health
  • Releases your “happy” endorphins
  • Maintains a healthy weight
  • Increases self-esteem
  • Connects you with the community
  • Relives boredom
Fun times for all

For your dog:
