The Best Time of Day to Walk Your Dog
By Jessica Bush
There are many factors that go into what time of day you walk your dog -- the weather, your age, your dog’s age, your neighborhood, your work schedule and more. With all of these considerations, how’s a pet parent to know the best time of day to walk a dog?
It’s quite simple, actually. The best time is when you have enough time!
Dog walks should be relaxing. Everyone knows a dog can instantly detect tension. Your time spent outdoors with your pet on leash should be no exception. Setting aside a minimum of 20 minutes a few times a week could do wonders for almost anyone.
But maybe your daily dance card stays jam-packed and you can’t imagine squeezing in even a short break. If so, consider replacing something in your weekly routine with a stroll. One of the great things about dogs is how they always have time for us. Now, you have the opportunity to do the same for your dog.
