Jumping into the New Year!
Watson here and I’m ready to jump into a new year. Christmas was fun with all the goodies and excitement, but now it’s time to get in shape. Yes, in only six months it will be bathing suit weather. I actually swim in the buff, but I want to be buff if you get my drift.
Everybody makes New Year resolutions, but they slip away as time passes. I’m the resolution keeper in my house because I keep my mom and dad on a strict sleeping and walking schedule. It’s early to rise to feed me and early to walk at Laura Mills Park to check the pmail.
Walking is one of the best and easiest exercises anyone can do. Dogs need exercise to keep healthy. Experts recommend 30 minutes a day walking, chasing the ball or playing with other dogs.
One suggestion for walking is to vary your routine. Dogs love to smell new scents and visit unfamiliar places. Let your dog take you for a walk. I can usually find something interesting if my dad will follow me. Sometimes it’s an old piece of bread, which I gobble up if I’m fast enough.
Regular exercise not only keeps your dog healthy but you as well. It can minimize annoying dog behaviors such as barking, jumping and chewing. My mom and dad don’t have too many annoying behaviors, but I’m sure it’s because we walk a lot. So what are you waiting for? I’ll see you in the park.
