5 Reasons Dog Love Going on Walks

Westie and Basset Hound
Dogs love going on walks. It is probably one of the most exciting parts of their day. Bentley and Pierre know when we are about to take them walking. They bark as they hurry to get their harnesses and leashes attached. I asked them what makes walking so special for dogs. The following are their answers.

• It’s great to get out of the house for a while. Staring at the same walls gets so boring.

• It is fun to walk with your best buddy so that you can discuss dog things.

• Walking gives you a chance to catch up with the neighborhood pee-mail.

• A brisk walk will tire you out and makes your next nap appear legit.

• Let’s face it, our humans need the exercise.

  1. yes, they do... and we have to walk them efurry day, or they become grumpy LOL

  2. Mom and I both love our walks!

  3. I envy dogs so much as they check their pee-mail.

  4. Those really were great ones and I can tell you two always have fun!

  5. Bentley and Pierre, sometimes I want to ask my neighbors if I can walk their dogs, when I go out each evening for my exercise. I've never walked a dog, but I'd learn, 'cause I know it's good for them.

  6. Perfect answers Bentley and Pierre. You two guys have the bestest of indoors and out of doors.
    What a lovely bloggy office you share with mom and all those special guy moments with each other

  7. Thanks for sharing all your excellent points. Our favorite is after a long walk. Get some water and right to taking a nap for a couple of hours. Have a wonderful rest of your day.

  8. Our most important reason is pee-mail..anything worth sniffing. Had to chuckle at the dog beds, something tells us there was a bed exchange happening.

  9. The last one was most important. It's having dogs that helps keep us humans healthier, in so many ways! ♥

  10. We look forward to our walks every day too.

  11. The only time I miss having a dog is when I go walking. I know how much dogs love it. ~Island Cat Mom

  12. We agree 100% about all of those reasons. Also, sometimes the deer and the geese leave candies in the grass!

    Love and licks,

  13. Those are great reasons for going for a walk, for sure! Way to go, Bentley and Pierre!

  14. That last one. So true! Here's to loads of walkies with the 'pawrents.'

  15. I love how they look out for humans and get us out to exercise! This human can use that! Walkies are the best! I think pee-mail my Huskies' favorite. ;-) Great pics!

  16. Pawsome answers ! Those are all great reasons to have a nice walk ! Purrs


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
