Do all dogs need to be walked?

There are some breeds that require a lower demand for exercise (a lower energy level). It does not mean they do not need exercise. It simply means that they can be satisfied with less exercise than some of the other breeds. All dogs need and will enjoy a nice walk with their owners. Throwing a ball or letting your dog run free at a dog park for exercise is great, but it still does not fulfill the dog’s need for a walk. It is very important that you take your dog for a daily walk where the dog is made to heel. Commands should be followed by the dog & the leader must be the human. This is a must for any dog in order to keep its mind balanced. The better shape your canine friend is in, the healthier he will be, mentally and physically.





It’s so nice to see the community of Prairie Village walking their dogs. Whether it’s cold or not dogs are being walked throughout the neighborhood or even at Franklin Park.

Why all pet owner do not walk their dogs

For many of you it may seem like a ‘no brainer’ on why and how to walk your dog. The fact is there are lots of pet owners who:

  • Don’t walk their dogs at all, or don’t do it routinely
  • Don’t make the most of the activity
  • Dread walks because their pet actually walks them, or exhibits other bad leash manners

Is Dog Training Necessary

Having a dog in your life should provide you with great joy and companionship – not extra burden or an endless source of frustration, as is so often the case.  Every dog owner must take up dog training to know and handle a dog better. Appreciating a well-mannered dog is something that all can do. Training a dog in obedience can be an ongoing and lengthy process depending on the dog, the methods used, and the skill and understanding of both the trainer and the handler.
