National Walk Your Dog Week
We’re excited to be participating once again in National Walk Your Dog Week. National Walk Your Dog Week was founded in 2010 by Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige, to bring awareness to the ever increasing problem of canine behavior issues and canine obesity in America.
You all know our mission to fight pet obesity, so promoting fitness, whether it’s running, biking or walking is second nature to us. We exercise our dogs every single day. Yes, every. single. day. They get either a run or a walk and sometimes multiple walks. We have always done that with our dogs from my first dog, Maxine, then Sally, Tino, Becca, Jack & Maggie. That’s a lot of walking. Last year we wrote a post tallying up the number of miles we’ve walked with our dogs, and we also asked our readers to share their favorite walks and got some great photos.
This year, we’re happy to be joining the Walk Your Dog Blog Hop being sponsored by our friends at MyGBGV Life and Cascadian Nomads. They’ve got a great giveaway going on, so be sure and check it out. They are asking everyone to commit to a daily walk with their dogs for the week, but since we already do that, we are going to commit a different walk every day.
That will be harder than you think as we typically go to the large open area park at the bottom of our street. It’s close, has two routes that are a good length for our morning walk and we don’t usually encounter any “off leash” challenges if you know what I mean. But, Jack and Maggie love new adventures, so in honor of Walk Your Dog Week, we plan to find new and different walks to take each day and report on them throughout the week.
We’ll post photos here, on Facebook and on Instagram, so be sure and check it out and add your photos of your walks with your dog to our album.
Have fun! Join the Walk Your Dog Blog Hop below:
