A Hidden benefit to Walking your Dog

Walking your dog is necessary for your dog’s wellbeing – it provides sensory stimulation, exercise, and an opportunity to socialize with other members of its species, apart from being able to spend time with you, the most important thing in his life.  But, there are benefits for you as well.  The American College of Sports Medicine has found that you burn 225 kilojoules every 15 minutes you walk your dog!

Now, THAT’S motivation.
