3 Ways to Workout With Your Dog

by TWL Working Mom









Do you have a dog? Do you bring your dog on walks or just let them out in the backyard? If you have an English Bulldog like me, you know how difficult it is to get them up and exercising. They are super lazy and sometimes I feel like we are the same! Ha ha!

Recently, I have been trying to incorporate all family members in walks around the neighborhood after dinner. Since having a yard at my house, it has been easier to just be lazy and not hold myself accountable for going walking or hiking. It is very easy to be lazy when you are not focusing on being fit.

Having a English Bulldog, our dog tends to get fat. He is lazy and doesn’t do well in heat so he does not like to walk. Like I mentioned, I have fallen into this spell as well! But this past month, we have made it a point to go for a walk every night at least a mile. Myself, my husband, my daughter and Caesar (our dog) walk the mile route everyday after dinner. This has helped us to bond as a family, be more active, and get everyone up and moving.

Without even really knowing it, this can benefit everyone, especially if you usually just let your dog out in the backyard (guilty).

Take a look at some really other activities that you can do with your dog to get both of your exercise in everyday!

My husband and I often took family walks with our boys…now they are taking family walks with their kids and spouses. It truly is a great way to bond-no cell phones allowed on the walk!
