No, but I do have a dog. I leave that up to my wife. My motivation is to hit the gym and burn as many calories as I can in the shortest amount of time.

Absolutely!! I have a one year old Pit-Mix you is absolutely a bundle of energy and if he doesn't get out he is crazy in the house. He walks very fast so I try to take him someplace where I can let him off the leash and he can run around. He's been leaping through the 2' of snow we have now like a Gazelle and that really tires him out ( so at least there's one good thing about the snow)
Yes! I have two little guys (toy poodle-12 yrs, yorkie-5 yrs) & they get so excited to go walking. I don't always take them when the weather is bad. Some days when I am feeling tired, I look at them and just can't refuse them a walk!
You NEVER regret a workout! Love Sojo

No. My hubby walks the dog. When we took her to obedience she was learning, but hubby just lets her chase squirrels and drag him down the street, so I can't control her now.

I have a basset hound, so he's not exactly a fast mover or very active at all LOL But, if I ever get home from work early enough so it's still light out (and it's warm enough), I like to take him for walks around the park in our neighborhood. He loves it and I always feel good after getting out and moving around even if it's just for 15-20 minutes. Plus the neighborhood kids get all excited when they see him, "that's a long dog!". Cracks me up.
