Walkin' The Dog

Joaqui is always hopeful and looks forward enthusiastically to his daily walk in the morning before his breakfast.

It serves as an exercise for him and for me as well. In addition, the activity becomes a bonding moment and an opportunity to have him exposed to the environment, to people especially kids and to animals like other dogs, cats, birds and insects.

I read some interesting notes on dog walking:

Dog walking is both a pastime and a profession involving the act of a person walking with a dog, typically from the dog's residence and then returning. This constitutes part of the daily exercise regime needed to keep a dog healthy. It also provides exercise and companionship for the walker.

Dogs are walked with a collar around their neck, or a harness around their waist, which is less common, or by following their owner by familiarity and verbal control (where safe). Commonly the dog is walked by the owner, or another family member, but there are also professional dog walkers.
