As a dog owner, you always have an excuse to exercise. Unless your pooch has a bladder the size of a mac truck, he’s going to need to use Mother Nature’s “facilities” from time to time. And unless he’s of the teacup or toy size, he’ll require more than a few laps around the living room to keep rambunctiousness in check. Regular, long walks are also good for his health –and for yours. That said, there are times when you need someone else to walk the dog. If you don’t have indentured servants (i.e. children) to handle the task, you may need to hire a dog walker.
