New Year, New Pet & New You

January is the month of ambitious resolutions and getting fit and losing weight tend to top the list. It's not easy but if you own a dog, your perfect fitness coach and motivator is right there at home with you and, crucially, they will benefit, too.

However many are unaware of the do's and don'ts when it comes to walking your dog. Our resident vet Pete Wedderburn is here with some tips and tricks.

However dogs make excellent exercise partners. But they also need your support. Canine obesity is the number one concern for vets. The health risks associated with obesity are similar for both people and dogs, and overweight owners are more likely to own overweight dogs.

Dog walking is a great way to start a new fitness regime and has been shown to have a positive impact on the physical and mental health of both pets and their owners. Dogs that walk less are more likely to be overweight and have behavioural issues, so exercising with your dog may benefit you both in the long term.
