Happy Take A Walk In A Park Day From The Gresham Animal Hospital Team 

At the end of this month comes a day that the Gresham Animal Hospital team would like to encourage Gresham pet owners to take part in. Take A Walk In A Park Day occurs on March 30th this year.  

What Is Take A Walk In A Park Day? 

Take A Walk In A Park Day was proposed as a way to encourage people to get in touch with nature. We’re all aware that taking walks can do wonders for our health – and it’s also proven that being close to nature is good for our physical health and our mental health. Walking in a park is a great way to de-stress, keep fit, and improve your mood. 

Take Your Dog Out For A Walk 

Of course – taking a walk in the park isn’t good just for your health. Taking regular walks is good for your dog, too! 

What Does Walking Do For Dogs? 

Much like for people, a good walk can help maintain good physical and mental health for your dog. Here are just a few benefits your dog experiences from getting regular walks: 

  • Improved cardiovascular health 
  • Low blood pressure 
  • Stronger muscles 
  • Stronger bones 
  • Less stress 

Taking walks also prevents pet obesity, which is associated with other health risks such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, and diabetes. 

How Often Should I Walk My Dog? 

Most dogs should be walked at least once a day. If you have a very energetic dog, though, you may want to walk them multiple times a day. How long your walks should be will depend on a few different factors, including your dog’s breed, age, and fitness. Determine what works best for you both!
