Why?

1.
Descendent from the big grey wolf

The dog is a direct descendent of the grey wolf, Canis lupus, thus they are just domesticated wolf living in your house. What a wolf love to do? It loves to socialise with 9 other wolves. (Just nice, Singapore is going to allow up to 10 people in Phase 3 to gather for a meal together. Let’s wait. )They love to howl and roam around the forest to look for their next big meal together.

2.
Most of them are extroverts

Imagine trying to lock up your extrovert friends for 3 days at home? Yes, I know you can imagine. They will be jittery and try to find all kinds of stuff to do around the house, which might increase the chance of them injuring themselves. Just like your hyper friend who need to dash out if he or she are given the chance. A dog works just the same way, they will dash out too if you lock him in your house for 3 days. Thou shalt walk your dog~

3.
You get to burn calories

A study at the University of Missouri showed that walking your dog was actually more effective for weight loss than having a membership in a gym or joining a diet plan. If you weigh about 150 pounds and try to walk briskly, you can burn up to 135 calories for every 30 minutes you walk.

Nuff said for here

For those who are unable to walk their dog

Listen, there is something call Petbackers, which other people are willing to help you walk your dog.

Do not keep your dog lock up at home. It will be detrimental for your dog mental health as they might develop canine cabin fever, which will definitely mess up your house as they develop problem behaviors such as chewing on your IKEA furniture, scratching those expensive wooden doors and make a mess everywhere.

Good luck!
