Exercising with Your Dog Offers Both Owner and Pet a Plethora of Benefits

By 4Knines Staff. | Activities for Your Dog
12 exercise with your dog There are indeed serious benefits for both humans and their pets when they get out and move together. Working out with your dog encourages you to stick with an exercise plan plus it incorporates your dog into more areas of your life, thus enhancing your bond. Not only that, it unleashes (no pun intended) a plethora of health benefits for both man, or woman, and dog. The obesity epidemic sweeping our nation isn't exclusive to the human race, an estimated 45 percent of dogs in the United States are also overweight if not obese. But before you team up with Rex for a workout routine, check with your veterinarian and take into account your dog's age, breed and general state of health. Exercise can be arduous for aged dogs and breeds with short or flat noses like pugs and bulldogs. Walking is good exercise for both dog and owner. You should base the distance you walk on your dog's overall health and breed. According to a study conducted by the George Washington University School, dog walkers had lower BMIs and suffered less from such chronic conditions as depression. Dogs really enjoy running. The first time you go for a jog with your dog, start slowly and gauge distance from there. Typically, Rex prefers to be in front of you, if he starts to lag behind, then it is time for a break. Heavy panting and foaming at the mouth are signs that Rex is tired or overheated. If you happen to have a private pool or access to a dog beach or pet friendly lake, take advantage and take Rex swimming. Exercise in the water is great for those who suffer joint pain, just make sure your dog is able to handle the water. Taking your dog for walks on dusty trails, or swimming in local lakes will leave Rex dirty and wet. Protect your car or truck from the elements with our dog seat cover. Nothing will ruin a perfectly good outing faster than muddy paw prints on your leather seats.

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
