As a follower of Cesar’s philosophy, you know how crucial exercise is in keeping your dog balanced and fulfilled. Although walking your pup is the most primal, natural activity you can do together, other forms of exercise have huge benefits as well. For humans and dogs, exercise drains energy, reduces stress, and keeps our bodies fit and healthy.
As committed as we may be to our dogs, reality often gets in the way of following through with our exercise strategy for them. The obligations of a full-time job, travel, and children are the norm for many of us. Being left alone and without structure for eight or more hours a day can have detrimental effects on your dog, especially if he already has behavior issues.
Doggie day care can be an excellent alternative for those of us with lifestyles that make it impossible for us to exercise our dogs on a consistent basis. Although it is not a substitute for structured, quality time with you, it can be a positive experience for your dog.
