Exercising your pet is just important for you as it is for your pet. Keep yourself and your pets happy and healthy with long walks, where socializing and getting outside will keep your dogs from developing bad habits. Daily walks mean health benefits, including healthier hip joints, managing a healthy weight, and reducing digestive problems—all of these things decreasing the likelihood of health issues later in life for your pets. Here is why both cats and dogs need exercise:
Indoor and outdoor cats alike need exercise just as much as dogs, helping with health issues like diabetes and arthritis. Investing in a fun jungle gym or climbing toy for your cat can provide hours of fun for your feline. Even better? A simple laser pointer can keep your cat going wild while burning calories and staying fit!
Not all dogs need the same amount of exercise, so it’s best to factor in breed, age, climate, and other factors. Dogs need anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours of exercise per day, depending on energy levels. Are they currently getting that much? If not, we can help!
