Doggy Walk: The Right Way

Doggy Walk: The Right Way

The right doggy walk

Walking for dogs is just as important as the nutrition in their lives. It plays an important role in their psychology and is not just about relieving their biological needs. Those who take their dogs “a doggy walk in the square” already deprive many of their dogs and lay the groundwork for some or some problematic behaviors. No matter the breed or size of our dog or whether it lives in the garden or not, no dog should walk less than 1 hour a day.

Many say to me, “Why should I take him for a ride? Having learned and doing them on the balcony. Outside it’s cold. I don’t get up in the mornings. We play at home with his ball and have a great time !!! ”

In these cases I am sure that you are having a great time, not the dog, who shows it in real-time either by barking, stress, disobedience. It’s important to go out, spend time with him and play outside with him, use a ball and play the return game. In reality, the dog does all the work and you just sit.

The ride is much more important than we think because the dog must:

Get in touch with other dogs

To socialize with the outside world

Gain the confidence to avoid phobias

Working his mind

Doing doggish behavior eg marking, marking

To receive stimuli (new smells, scenes, etc) different from those that surround him all day long.

Exhale and excrete a large amount of energy so that it is calmer and docile at home.

The 3 stages of the doggy walk are:

1. Before leaving the door

2. The main ride

3. Returning home

1. Before leaving the door


– Be calm.

– Don’t get excited about his ride. Just get up, grab his strap loosely and head to the front door.

– If it jumps, wait for it to calm down. Do not talk to him and if necessary release the straps and grasp them again as soon as he is calm.

– Ask him to sit down. Let him know: if he doesn’t calm down, he won’t go out.

– Open the door only when the dog remains calm.

2. The ride

The ride must be a kind of exercise. We must also control every activity during its duration, such as smelling it, which will make it necessary to prevent it from being pulled over.

It is not your dog’s behavior that matters, but your own. You have to set your own limits and rules as guides.

It is also important to trust him and show him that you do not have complete confidence in him. I am not referring to dogs with extreme aggression or phobia behaviors, but to balanced dogs. For example, let the freelancer in a safe place to run and play, do not be afraid to leave. Trust him, learn to be by your side or come with your call.

You should not show fear or insecurity in your ride because it is transmitted. Try to be relaxed and calm.

3. Returning home

Finally, before entering ask him to sit down, open the door, come in first and then ask your dog to come in and sit down and then take out the strap.

This way your dog:

1. He is most pleased with his ride.

2. It is more concentrated.

3. It’s calmer.

4. It’s more balanced, in general.
