January - Walk Your Pet Month
January is Walk Your Pet Month.
What a great way to start the year! Ceasar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, is a firm believer that many behavior problems can be helped by providing more structured exercise. Walking your dog can actually help you to meet your own fitness goals. A recent study from the University of Missouri found that people who walk with dogs are more consistent in their exercise routine than those who walk with a human -- what could be a better way to burn off those holiday calories?
Throughout the country, people are hosting group walks to show their commitment to Walk Your Pet Month. Is there an event near you? If there is not an event going on in your area, create your own! Get your neighbors together and take a stroll around the block. Or ask some friends -- human and canine -- if they want to meet up with you and your pup for a hike in your favorite spot.
