Whether walking or doing real sport: fun and variety for people and animals are very important. When looking for a common hobby, it is therefore particularly important that you and your dog enjoy it. It makes little sense to go jogging with him every day if you really hate running and to throw balls for hours when your four-legged friend prefers to look for tracks. Find out what the two of you enjoy! Praise yourself for doing something for your own health and fitness in this way and also motivate the dog with praise and treats.
But please also make sure that none of them are overwhelmed. With young dogs in particular, you have to be careful with anything that is particularly hard on the joints and ligaments. Older or sick dogs should also be challenged more mentally than physically. To find out where your and your dog’s limits are, it is best to start very slowly and increase the training sessions gradually. But no matter what you do with your dog: Play and sport are teamwork – and teamwork strengthens the bond with your dog!
