Have you been through thick and thin with your pooch, and have watched them grow from pup to senior citizen? If the answer is yes, you’re likely well aware of your older canine’s physical limits. Exercise may become a struggle for your dog as he ages, but the reality is, it’s always a good idea to remain active, even later in life. Fortunately, there are a few different options to try out to help keep your dog living a sedentary lifestyle, even as a senior.
-Swimming: This effective, low-impact method of exercise is a great way to keep your senior pooch in shape. Not only will it keep them cool in the summer, but it’s great on their joints as they doggy paddle in the water, according to Cesar Millan.
-Tire easily? ThatMutt.com suggests spacing out your long walks, and breaking them up into shorter strolls that you can take with your pooch throughout the day. Instead of walking a mile all at once, why not spread out the workout throughout the day?
