Ways to Exercise Your Dog

When it comes to getting your dog in shape, there are many ways you can go about it.

By Activities

Some people enjoy taking their dogs for long runs every day, while others are happy with a quick walk around the block.

No matter what type of activities you choose, one thing is for sure: both owner and pup will have tons of fun!

Here at Dogsbarn, we’ve created this list of exercises that any dog will enjoy doing with their human companion!

Best Dog Games

One of the best ways to keep your dog healthy is by getting them plenty of exercise.

It can be tough to come up with enough ideas for doing this, especially if you live in an urban area where space might be limited or if you have a smaller garden or no outdoor space.

We’ll provide tips and tricks on how to play games with your dog even when you don’t have much outdoor space available.

Dogs are our best friends. They love us unconditionally, even when we’re at our worst.

It’s only natural that we want to take care of them and ensure they live healthy lives. One way to do this is by making sure they get active! Indoor or outdoor garden games are a great way of doing this.

Dog Walking

Walking your dog is one of life’s little pleasures, well, at least it should be. If your dog lacks manners when walking on a lead, it’s a wrestling match to get them in their harness, or they make a general nuisance of themselves when outdoors, maybe we can help.

Whether you and Fido are taking a stroll around the block or tackling Snowdonia, our tips for happy walks will help you overcome problems, show you how to train a dog to walk on a lead and teach your pup to be polite when out for a stroll.

Dog Agility

Dog agility looks like fun, right? If you want to try this fantastic dog sport but are unsure how to get started, then look no further. Our agility tips are great for beginners.

We’ll show you how to look for classes and what equipment is needed. Does it really need to cost a fortune? And how to train your dog to overcome each obstacle.

We should all be spending quality time with our pets, and dog agility provides an excellent exercise for both dog and owner, builds trust, gives active pooches an outlet for energy and, best of all, is tremendous fun.

Exercise by Age

A dog’s fitness needs vary dramatically as they age, and the exercise they require should be adjusted accordingly.

See the different age-specific exercise requirements for dogs if you’re unsure what type of workout your pup needs.

As a dog ages, its body changes and become less flexible. This means that they require different exercises to maintain the same level of health and wellness with age.
