Cycling with your dog is a more rigorous activity than running and is beneficial for both you and your furry friend.
Cycling is perfect for dogs that are exuberant on walks and have tons of energy. It will also help with any behavioral issues that your pet may have.
Attach your dog’s leash to your bike’s frame or seat stem to absorb much of the force of sudden tugs.
However, before enjoying cycling with your furry friend, make sure your dog has the energy and stamina to trot alongside as you bike. Also, you need to pedal at a pace that will allow your pet to keep up easily.
10. Using a Treadmill
You can also try exercising your dog on a treadmill. Treadmills can serve a good role in helping overweight dogs lose weight.
However, it is best to use a treadmill only when the outside weather does not permit outdoor exercise.
You can exercise your dog on your own treadmill or buy one specifically for dogs, which you can easily find in the market.
You’ll need to introduce your dog to the treadmill by letting it sniff it. Only when your dog is comfortable with the treadmill, allow your pet to get on it. Start with a very low setting, and work your way up to the desired setting to provide a more challenging workout.
