One of the most common causes of dog behavioral problems like barking, chewing or digging is a lack of exercise. Dogs need exercise to stimulate them mentally as well as to burn off excess energy. If they don't get the exercise they need, they can gain weight, act out, show anxiety or demand constant attention from their owners. Besides, imagine if you could only leave the house when someone let you out. How much would exercise mean to you?
So do your dog a favor and make sure he or she gets plenty of exercise. (Of course, always check with your veterinarian first to make sure your dog is healthy and in good shape for what you want to do.) It's great bonding time for the two of you, and it means the world to your four-legged best friend!
