Trying different dog workouts is perfect for getting you both outside during the summer. As taking your pup out for a walk for daily exercise is important for their health, there are also other exercises you can try with your four-legged friend.
Swimming is a fun way to get your dog outside to cool off, and it also provides an opportunity for your pooch to showcase their doggy paddle skills. You can take their love for water one step further by having them participate in dog diving, where they fetch for a toy underwater. For pups not keen on the water, having them participate in Disc Dog or Treibball is an exciting way for them to partake in more sport-like exercises. Disc dog is considered a more extreme version of fetch, and Treibball is a competitive sport that involves dogs herding and driving large balls into a football goal.
For more fun ways to exercise your dog, Sainsbury’s bank has created a dog exercise guide explaining different workouts to try with your four-legged friend.
