Welcome. Your dog will love you if you walk, so take the poor animal out and enjoy the walk. I find that parts of walking are fun and parts are ridiculously boring. I find that I have to do something with my mind so I can walk and not feel like I have things I could be doing at home.
I listen to books while I walk. I get them free from the library and download new books regularly. I can use the time to expand my mind, read books recommended by others, and read the "guilty pleasures" that I wouldn't want to "waste time" on at home. It is also fun to listen to music but would prefer to expand my mind and not recite the words of the songs in my head.
My dog, once I started walking regularly (a week or so) would follow me around the house until we had our walk. If I sat down and did something else, the head would be on my lap until I gave up and we walked. The dog will walk any time, anywhere. She loves her walks and at ten years old is quite fit.
Spark has some great resources.
