#7 Lack Of Exercise
Walking the dog is a lovely exercise, not only for the pooch but for the walker too. Many consider that it’s enough to take a few rounds around the block and it does the job right?
Not really. Dogs need to get their hearts pumping for exercise to be beneficial and it has to happen on a daily basis. Do not be hesitant to get dogs off their leashes, it’s important to let them run free and play around at times. Of course, it has to be in a safe environment.
As for small dogs like Chihuahuas, do not make it a habit of carrying them, it just reinforces laziness.
