Finding the right place to exercise your dog is very important, especially if you don’t have a large fenced-in area where the dog can run around. Some dogs will require more exercise than others, for examples, Huskies can run for miles without getting tired. They were bred to work and go for miles, and this is why so many Huskies run away from their homes. The best thing you can do is find a good park to exercise your dog at, which should not be difficult depending on where you live. If you live in a city next to the ocean you might even be able to find a dog beach where you can bring your dogs, however many of the popular beach destinations are actually pet free.
So, what is the best place you can go to exercise your dog? Any park with a large enough area for the dogs to play in; one where there are other dogs and is not too crowded with people. Most dog parks are ideal for exercising your dog, as they can get plenty of space to run around and play with other dogs. Simply going for a walk is not good enough for the majority of dogs, and so they will need more exercise. These dogs have high exercise requirements that must be met in order for the dog to be happy and feel content. So bringing your pet to dog parks is a great place for your dog to let out his energy, just check the Yelp reviews to find out the best dog parks.
When a dog does not get an adequate amount of exercise he or she might engage in some destructive behavior, such as chewing on things, tearing up your house, and running away from home. The last thing you want is for your dog to run away from home, so make sure you satisfy your dog’s needs. Working and herding dogs generally require more exercise and the dog park is a great place for them to let out all that excess energy. Some dogs don’t require much exercise, and therefore a walk at the park will be enough to satisfy them. Regardless of your dog’s energy levels it is a great idea to take him or her to the park, especially as puppies. Taking a puppy to the park is great if you want to socialize him, especially if the dog doesn’t see many people at home. Dog breeds that are known to be aggressive can certainly benefit from socialization, exercise and trips to the park.
