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.

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Split rear seat cover (no hammock) and Split cargo liner

I just purchased these items to use in an Infiniti QX30. The small cargo liner fits well with lots to tuck underneath - so good coverage if I need to drape it over the bumper for loading camping gear, etc. The regular split seat cover is just a tidge big, but with some tucking here and there it covers the seat well. Good quality and prompt service. I recommend this product.

This product is amazing and so is the company. I was concerned it wouldn't fit my F350 Super Duty crew cab. I emailed them to ask and they responded really quick. I got the cover and it is everything they show it is & more. It fits perfect. I also bought the side covers for the doors in the back.
