Exercising with your dog can either be really great or really horrible. There are some right and wrong ways to do it, but, as with everything, it differs for each person and canine. Try to talk to your vet before you start working out with your dog just like you would talk to your physician. If you follow these 7 tips, man’s best friend could become man’s best trainer.
Allow your dog to warm up first
Just like you do stretches, your dog needs a pre-workout warm up as well. Now, this doesn’t mean that they will be next to you doing lunges, but you should try to play with them a little bit beforehand. Try playing fetch or another one of their favorite games prior to your workout this way they are properly warmed up. Not doing this could cause your dog to over-exert themselves initially and the workout won’t be as effective.
