Exercising Pets Improves Their Temperament

Feb 1, 2008
Most pets have a friendly disposition because they are get exercised on a regular basis. Dogs particularly enjoy getting exercise by chasing balls thrown to them in the backyard. With the proper amount of exercise, the muscle structure in an animal will show more definition because the muscles are noticeably stronger.

While exercising a dog requires a certain amount of time, it will also give the pet owner an opportunity to get a little exercise at the same time. With regular exercises, the animal will develop more energy and walk with an energetic gait that exudes happiness to everyone that see him. The dogs that do not exercise regularly will show signs of fatigue after short amounts of playtime.

Little dogs are prone to mood swings because they have so much energy. Their temperament can be greatly improved if they are given space to exercise indoors. A porch is a great place for little dogs to play because pet owners can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while getting the dog to fetch objects such as socks, towels and other soft objects. Harder objects might cause damage to teeth and no amount of exercise will improve that dogs attitude until it is repaired by a dentist.

Some dogs need more exercise than others because they have a weight problem. Elderly dogs can develop serious circulation problems and some experience kidney failure because their older body structure can not withstand the additional weight that is pressed on their internal organs. Elderly dogs can live a normal and healthy life with a little exercise and a healthy diet that centers on reducing weight.

A pet might receive an excessive amount of nutrition and exhibit erratic behavior. If this is a dog that is an inside pet, there is usually a limited number of exercise opportunities during the day that will allow them to expend this excess energy. Attentive pet owners can arrange with friends and neighbors to walk pets during the day for a pre-arranged price. This little act will show a pet that he is loved and the pet will show its appreciation by being more affectionate.

Children need to burn off extra energy too so they can rest better at night. Children love pets and make good exercise partners because they are younger and can keep up with the active pace that a pet can exude while doing something that they enjoy. Children might have to be coaxed into walking by being offered an allowance for walking the pet but the result will be that the family has a healthier and happy pet.
