We've written about the benefits of our weekly dog walks for our pooches, but we don't always talk about the great benefits for the human end of the leash. There is the obvious human socialization taking place, but one of the other things that we love is the exercise benefit.
Many of us in Erie have some type of yard, so it's easy to let the pooches play-exercise. Of course, this is no help for us humans! Our one-hour, two-mile weekly walks are an easy way to kick-start a walking habit. Some of our members need the confidence to get started with their pooches. During the brutal winter months, our pack walks may be some of our only walks with our dogs!
