Get some exercise for yourself and your dog with a nice, relaxing walk.

Step 1: Obtain collar, tags, and leash
Get your dog a well-fitting collar, ID tags, and a sturdy leash.

A well-fitting collar should allow you to slip two fingers snugly between the collar and your dog’s neck.

Step 2: Update vaccines
Make sure your dog is up to date on all vaccinations. Puppies that haven’t received their shots shouldn’t be taken for walks.

Step 3: Check area restrictions
Check restrictions in the area where you want to walk. Certain public places don’t allow dogs, while others do but require a leash.

Before walking your dog in public, teach them leash manners, including keeping close to your side and not lunging at others.

Step 4: Clean up
Clean up after your dog. Tie waste bags closed before you throw them away.

Step 5: Provide water
Give your dog water every 30 minutes during the walk and when the walk is finished. Now that you’ve both gotten some exercise, kick back and relax with your four-legged friend.

Did You Know?
There are more than 72 million pet dogs in the United States.

Oct 27, 2013 - I am getting a dog soon. When it gets all its vaccine shots, I was planning to walk it for about 20-30 minutes after school.

Nov 23, 2012 - WOW this doesn't teach anything. I would like to post some help videos that have worked brilliantly for large, lunging, reactive dogs like Rotts, Mastiffs, over excited Labs etc - but trying to find what is already out there and what people really want to see.

Aug 27, 2012 - Non anal retentive version.....Hmmm, what do I need? My bicycle keys, e-collar perhaps on the dog depending on time of day (late night, no need). leash (this goes in the basket and is only for looks or if a problem were to arise. Procedure..... get on bike. Put dog in Heel mode next to bike. Pedal like a madman. Dog will love it. Watch CAREFULLY for cars, people and other dogs. At midnight, this isn't a problem. Stop by park on way back and turn on water. For dog.
