A house isn’t truly a home without a furry creature in it, right? For those fortunate enough to call themselves dog owners, having a tail-wagging best friend at your side makes life that much better. With as much as our pups are a part of our lives, unfortunately adult responsibilities get in the way of dedicating every waking moment playing with our four legged comrades. Work, chores, and familial responsibilities can often leave dogs with energy that hasn’t been relieved. This pent-up energy can manifest into some of the less-liked aspects of dog ownership… like chewing on that favorite couch of yours.
But did you know that a simple walk can change everything?
Dogs tend to misbehave, have anxiety, or develop unsavory habits due to one or more of these key factors:
● Not having their energy relieved.
● A lack of mental stimulation.
● An emotional state that is a little rocky (which is especially true for rescue pups).
