Keeping Fido Fabulous

Apr 15, 2013 |

dogNot only are our dogs our best friends, they make great workout partners!  Dogs make amazing workout partners because they are consistent, reliable, and enthusiastic; they also never make excuses, never tease you, and don’t try to compete with you. One of the best ways to get in shape and stay that way is to give your dog what he craves, plenty of exercise.   

Regular (twice daily) exercise for dogs is recommended to prevent obesity which can lead to a host of other health issues including heart disease and arthritis.  Not only does exercise help your dog stay healthy physically it has a positive effect on both your dog’s and your mental wellbeing,  just think no more chewed shoes or holes in the back yard!   

Having fun outdoors with your dog is a great way to expend energy in a productive way.   There are so many great parks and trails in Nanaimo, including 8 permanent off-leash parks and a handful of pilot sites to explore. Try a new park each week. If you have kids get them involved too.  You can all have tones of healthy fun by getting outside and getting some exercise.

Wherever you decide to take your pooch for outdoor fun, make sure they are wearing their license.  You never know when he might find a way to escape even the most watchful eye. Also always clean up after your pooch.  Picking up after your dog keeps our parks and environment clean, healthy and beautiful.

For more information about Nanaimo’s dog off leash parks including a downloadable map, log onto our Dogs in Parks & Trails section or enter "off-leash parks" in the search box at the top of this website.

    Dogs and cats alike rarely love nail trimming. This is because dogs find it uncomfortable if their paws are handled and they find it equally painful if their nails are cut too short. <a href="">marketing funnel</a>
