Getting fit with Fido! Your pooch needs a walk and you want to slim down and get in shape, so put the two together this fall for a smart, fun workout. Not only is dog walking good exercise for both of you, but it can also improve your dog’s behavior. Pets who don’t have the chance to burn enough energy may end up chewing your shoes and couch out of boredom (yikes!). Here, the best tips for getting fit with your dog:
Feet first: Nix the flip-flops and clogs and lace up proper shoes before heading out. Your dog may sprint or dart to the side, so having good foot support will help keep you stable.
