Secrets of Success

Get A Dog.



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.

More Information:

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.

  • I agree. I recently started working from home 2 days a week and I walk my 2 dogs during my lunch break. They know when it's lunch time and it does give me that extra push to get up and walk. emoticon - by JLSTOCKWELL

    Unlike people who can find any excuse to back out, those beautiful brown eyes will NEVER back out. My dog is absolutely my best workout partner ever! - by MANDERS101
    I have to credit my dog on those days that I don't feel like running. She is the encouragement that I need to shake that lazy feeling! - by LAURELMOYES
