It’s week three of the Strut Your Pup Challenge and so far you have developed a routine and recruited a friend. This week try something new with your furry friend; try a new walking or jogging route around your neighborhood, check out a park or trail in your area or even take your pooch along for a round of disc golf! Don’t forget your Strut Your Pup water bowl to keep your canine companion hydrated as the temps (finally) heat up in Iowa!
When the mind and body of your pup are exercised, they are much better behaved. When a dog becomes bored, they are often more likely to be destructive and mischievous. Here are a few fun ideas for getting active with your dog.
Obstacle Course at the park or in your yard
Walk or Jog
Hide and Seek
Don’t forget to continue to log your minutes of activity with your tail wagging teammate at least once per week. Of those who have tracked each week through week three, Live Healthy Iowa will be choosing 50 lucky participants to win a $5 Subway gift card!
