There is no better motivation in my book than to see my dog's exuberance when he sees me putting my shoes on for our morning walk. Dogs need exercise, and as their steward you must walk them. Don't cheat the little fella out of his joy by just walking to the fire hydrant at the end of the block.
All you need is a dog and a leash. Don't forget to pick up her poop. I use a plastic grocery bag and when it has anything in it I tie the bag to the middle of the leash so I don't have to carry it.

If you have a dog and a cat before you take your dog on a walk put the leash on it gets the dog all excited knowing that they are going to go on a walk and the cats run are chasing the leash until it is time to go 246
getting a dog was one of the best things i did to help me exercise more because even if i cant be bothered to exercise i know that at least 3 times a day my little fella needs his walkies so i always end up walking at least 1 hour a day 30
