How to walk a dog

What is a proper dog walking? What should a walk with a dog consist of? How to walk a dog? I offer you a basic dog walking scheme, which takes into account all the vital needs of the animal, which must be met. Why satisfy them? So that your pet does not suddenly appear “bad behavior”: aggression, uncleanliness, hyperactivity, a tight leash, etc. Of course, this is not a panacea for all problems, but a quality walk can greatly improve a dog’s behavior.

How to walk a dog?
In continuation of my article on the needs of dogs and on walking dogs I want to show you an example of what a normal walk with a dog should consist of. Of course, this is a very general walk pattern. But it is important to understand its meaning that walking a dog is not only going to the toilet and running, but also satisfying other vital needs of the animal.
In the example, I consider the minimum walking duration – 60 minutes. You can already fine-tune this scheme to your duration of walk.
If your dog has problems, for example, with communicating with relatives, then it is advisable to solve these problems, and not to exclude this item from the walking plan. This applies to each item.
And yet – if you walk with a dog only on a leash – do not worry! This is absolutely humane and does not violate any freedom of the animal, if you follow all the points discussed in my example. It is advisable to have two leashes of different lengths (How to choose a leash >>) – 1.5-2 meters and 3 meters or more (so that the dog can get away from you if there is no way to lower it from the leash).

Walking pattern
Now let’s take a look at an example (above, on my slide, I schematically depicted an approximate walking scheme):

1. Time for a toilet (5-10 min.) – Adult dogs usually get used to “doing things” in the same place, most often, immediately upon leaving the house.
2. Playing with relatives (10 minutes) is an important point. Communication with their own kind is necessary for dogs. But here it is important to understand that communication with relatives is not only a game, but also just sniffing and playing the rituals of a meeting! The owners often believe that if the dogs do not switch to an active game, then they should be forced to play it. At the same time, they say, roughly, the following: “Well, what are you sniffing at? Play already! Let’s run!” This is a mistake that can lead to a conflict between dogs, because the owner thereby prevents the animals from performing the meeting-dating rite. Do not force dogs to play, give them freedom of choice.
3. Training (5-10 minutes) – may include both training for teams and various intellectual games for the street (for example, search games).
4. Game with the owner (5-10 min.) – this can be a game of “catching up”, aporting, while working out endurance (for teaching the dog to switch from an excited state to a calm one), and sharing the toy with the command “Give”.
5. A quiet walk (5 min.) – you can just lie with the dog on the grass, or you can calmly walk on a leash, let the dog sniff, read the “dog Internet”.
6. Playing with relatives or training (5 min.) – now you can again play with friends or continue training.
7. Calm return home (10 min.) – so that the dog calms down and has time to finish “their affairs” if she did not do this at the beginning. Also give the opportunity to smell the tags and calm return home.

Please note that the intellectual load is much stronger and faster tires the dog than physical! Therefore, if your task is rather to tire the active dog, load its brains (with training and intellectual games).

Now you know how to walk the dog correctly. But if you still have questions, contact: write a letter >>
