Fun Ways To Exercise With Your Dog


We all know that exercising is good for our bodies, but did you know it's also essential for our dogs? It will help them stay fit and mentally alert. Plus, it's just plain fun! Here are just a few ways you can incorporate your four-legged friend into your exercise routine:

1. Fetch

Playing fetch is a favorite pastime for dogs! Dog owners with busy schedules can also get their dogs' daily exercise fix by playing fetch. You can play fetch with a ball or even a stick thrown by you for your pooch to fetch. The best part is you can easily play it anywhere and anytime - on a Sunday morning at the park or on a lazy afternoon from the comfort of your couch.

2. Swimming

Swimming is an excellent activity for dogs that are eager to get into the pool. If your dog enjoys swimming and seems confident enough to join you in the pool, consider taking him swimming as often as possible, It's fun to play fetch in the water or simply dip in for a relaxing paddle together. You can both enjoy this fun, low-impact exercise.

3. Scent Games

It is very popular among dog owners to play nose games with their dogs to enhance the dog's scent-smelling ability. As well as stimulating their mental skills, it keeps them physically active. Treats can be kept in little boxes with a scent trail leading to them. This way, you can keep your pets entertained at home when you cannot take them out. When they succeed in following the trail and finding the boxes, praise them and give them treats.

4. Hide And Seek

Hide and seek is also a fun game you can play with your dog to exercise them. Find a place in your house, and then hide there after the command "Come." Dogs generally follow the scent trail to find their owners. Besides making them exercise, this will also stimulate their cognitive abilities. Our pets can tell when we come home or are near them by our scents.

5. Runaround

Taking your dog for a run with you is a great cardio workout! Exercise improves your pet's muscle strength and stamina while enjoying the outdoors. Ensure your pet is hydrated by bringing a water bottle. Learn to stop whenever your dog wants a sniff or a chance to meet some passersby.


Spending time together is always a good thing, whether exercising or not. Your dog will benefit from the exercise, and it can help you bond with them in a way that you wouldn't have been able to do otherwise.
