Not many consider that taking their pet for a walk comes with a double benefit. Just like the human; pets have flesh and blood that requires time to time exercise to help their muscles remain active and experience a good flow of blood.
According to a study carried out, found that those people who owned dogs were healthier than those who did not. The bond between pet and human is strong and somehow exceeds that of the human-to-human bond. There is chemistry behind this kind of bond, which leaves a question as to whether dogs are more responsive to attachment with the human than human themselves? Does it mean dogs display honesty more than human? Well, whatever it is, it leaves a room full of unanswered queries.
Health Benefits Both Dog and Human Gain from Each Other
While to many it may look like just a routine, walking once per day or more improves your dog’s health, stays agile, and active. Moreover, daily exercise for dogs helps them stay happy and alert. Every little walk done routinely makes your pet become used to the daily walk, and there are even more benefits than can be related to the walk alone.
For a human, you don’t just want to imagine how that does to you. First, daily engagements especially did in the morning boost your immune system and morale early in the day. Second, it plays a major role in keeping your body weight in control. Third, it improves your digestion through active muscles and consistency in burning of calories.
It is not clear how human and dogs tend to have a strong bond more than any other pet reared in the household. When you compare the human relationship with that of a cat, for instance, it is not that strong bond like we see it happen with dogs.
Among the many studies carried, there is one done from the University of Central Lancashire which shows that majority of dog owners, about 40% happen to regard the dog as a family member and not an alien. Dogs seem attuned to the emotional state of their owners, and their unreserved affection makes them a qualified candidate to be included in the human family. Morning walks together with a dog provides companionship and more drive to participate in the process more than any human can provide. The bond even prepares the dog to be alert when the time of the walk nears.
Cleanliness and Good habits
Most dogs are naughty in nature and adopt dirty behaviors such as digging in the ground, peeing everywhere, and just like kids behave, so are dogs. So, daily engagements with walks tend to tune the dog into some kind of discipline, and slowly by slowly any uncouth behavior keeps dropping one after the other.
Trust and Hyperactivity
Dogs behave to a certain percentage like a human, from the way they look, respond, and determine whether to trust or not. If for a given time you train your dog to get used to sticking together doing the walks, that bond keeps growing and only with time it gets used to you which builds trust.
Though for this is for dogs that are not in speed of trusting too much until they learn more about you. Furthermore, those daily activities help your dog to have enough time to sleep rather than struggling with restlessness. Lastly, dog walk helps your dog stay calm and relaxed.
This walk routine keep the bond more tightly, and apart from health benefits, the dog gives you confidence in case of fear, and that kind of relationship is hard to break.
