Just what is the proper method and time as well as frequency to walk your dog? There is a right way to walk your dog. Your pooch should either walk beside you or behind you, never in front of you. You should walk your dog, not the other way around. It means a great deal in your dog's world. When you let a dog walk in front of you, you're communicating that he's the one who is in charge of the walk.
How long a walk does your dog need, anyway? Twenty minutes is a good amount of time to aim for most dogs—even seniors, if they’re in good health. If your dog is very active, he may need longer, more vigorous walks, maybe even two or more times a day. Or try slow, short jogs to get your active senior moving.
Proper dog walking is an art. It is one that has been mastered by the pet care professionals at Critter Sitters.
