Walking the dog has huge health benefits – for you. Incidently, it’s a pretty good deal for your furry friend as well. Some of those benefits include lower blood pressure, a lower BMI, and a trimmer waistline; it’s a great way to fight the Obesity Epidemic. Read more on Arthritis Today. The biggest ‘aha’ I got from walking my Izzy Dog every night was the community benefit of pets. I had no idea there were so many people out every evening, rain or shine, walking their dogs. I found neighbors I never knew I had! People stop, visit, share information, and create bonds. Not only do I feel part of a neighborhood community, I feel safer knowing my neighbors. So get out there and get walking; enjoy the health benefits! Izzy and I are going tonight.
