Instead of simply letting your dog out in your yard, take him for a walk when he paws your back door. Not only do dogs of all shapes and sizes need exercise, but walking is one of the best cardio vascular exercises to get your body moving. You can set a program up so you can begin walking and when you are up to it, start to incorporate a slow jog into your routine with intervals. Jogging or a brisk walk can not only tone your body and help you lose weight but it’s a great way to reduce anxiety, increase blood circulation and speed up the digestive system.
