Most shelters are happy if volunteers come and walk their dogs. If you are inexperienced with dogs they will pick the cutest most patient dog for you to walk with. Not only will you get exercise, but the dog might motivate you to jog part of the way or move at a quicker pace. He will love you for every step the two of you are exercising in the fresh and open nature!
It saves you money on the personal trainer/ motivator, will boost your mood and help some being that is loked up in a shelter without having done anything wrong.
We got two dogs this summer... and we LOVE THEM! They are so cute and fun, but the neatest thing is, they NEED to be walked, and it keeps me from making excuses for not exercising! The dog whisperer says a dog needs two 45 minute walks a day... that's a LOT of walking!
