“A healthy mind resides in a healthy body,” as the aphorism goes, applies to practically all animal
species. Regular exercise is a vital component of your pet’s life that helps them maintain a healthy body.
Proper grooming, balanced nourishment, and regular visits to your veterinarian are also important
aspects of your dog’s healthy lifestyle. The best time to begin exercising your dog is when he or she is a
puppy, and it should be done throughout their lives.

What are the advantages of exercising regularly?

The phrase “use it or lose it” applies to your dog’s body as well, because if he does not use it, he will
inevitably lose it. Daily exercise is very vital if you want to keep your dog happy, healthy, and out of
trouble. It gives several benefits, including:

 It decreases or eliminates typical dog behaviour issues such excessive barking, digging,
hyperactivity, and chewing.

 It aids in the maintenance of agility and limberness in dogs.

 It helps pets with constipation and other digestive issues.

 It also gives shy or nervous dogs confidence and trust.

 It helps dogs feel sleepy, rather than restless, at bedtime or when you are relaxing.

 It keeps your dogs’ weight under control.

Not only this; if you play with or snuggling up to your furry friend, you also gets lots of mental and
physical health benefits. Many studies have been conducted to show the health benefits of the pet
owners when they play with their pets. Some of these studies are as follows:

 Pet owners are less prone than non-pet owners to suffer from numerous medical disorders such
as depression.

 When compared to persons who do not have pets, pet owners had lower blood pressure under
stressful conditions.

 People with borderline hypertension who adopted dogs had their blood pressure drop
dramatically within five months, according to one study.

 Dopamine and serotonin levels are elevated when people play with cats or dogs, which soothe and
calm them.

 Pet owners have lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels (indicators of heart disease) than nonpet
