Walk it Out This Spring

Happy National Taking a Walk Day! What a better way to spend time with your dog with an active activity that is beneficial for you and your pet. With Spring approaching, this is the time when pets become eager to go outside and enjoy some fresh air. 

When taking your pet outside, it is important to be aware of the proper safety and care for your pet. The first step is to ensure you have the proper leash and harness based on the size and weight of your pet. Leashes and harnesses come in all different styles, shapes and sizes. What works for one, may not work for another. 

If the harness and leash are too small, it can cause discomfort. If the harness is too big, your pet could potentially slip out of the harness. It is recommended to put the harness and leash on before you reach your destination, to ensure that your pet is secure and comfortable. 

Just like us, they have the same size ranges. According to Pawsafe, here is the ideal guideline to ensure the correct size harness based on your pet's weight.

  • Extra Small (XS) 0-18 lbs
  • Small (S) 18-35 lbs
  • Medium (M) 30-50 lbs
  • Large (L) 45-80 lbs
  • Extra Large (XL) 75-135+

In residential areas, where there is frequent traffic it is crucial to make sure your pet is leashed and harnessed at all times for their safety. Some key items to have when your off for a walk with your pup are:

  • poop bags 
  • water and water bowl
  • treats to reward positive behavior
  • Doggy wipes
  • A toy or ball for their enjoyment

Not only is it very beneficial for your pet to go on frequent walks, but it is also good for us as well. Going on walks and getting exercise will help extend the quality of life. It also allows you as the pet parent to bond with our fur baby! Don’t forget to bring some tasty treats along to reward your pup on their walk!
