I specifically wanted a dog so I could get exercise walking and running. I just feel safer walking with the dog. My cousin lost a lot of weight when she got her dog.
I walk my dogs every morning. They usually keep up pretty well, but not always. If i want a good workout, like jogging several miles, I get up early, go out for a jog, then come home and take the dogs out for a walk. They max out at 3 miles and one of the dogs is not willing to go beyond certain points. The other dog does not want to go without the first dog.
You're never too old to do goofy stuff.
