Just like with people, dogs that don’t get enough exercise can rapidly put on weight. This can lead to increased risks of an assortment of health issues such as: diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease, increased blood pressure, decreased liver and immune functions, digestive disorders,  increased risk of skin and coat diseases and more.
Extra weight can also put additional stress on your dog’s joints and ligaments. Carrying too much weight can be especially taxing on older dogs, as the additional weight magnifies any mobility problems they have like arthritis or hip dysphasia.
Daily dog walks and making sure your dog gets enough exercise is critical to their health and overall quality of life. Regular dog walking is also good preventive health care and will save you money on veterinary bills in the long run.
