The dog is man's best friend, they say. And for many of us, our dog is a family member and a faithful walking companion. By taking your dog on a walk, you get pleasant company, security and countless fun moments. There is also no hiding the fact that a dog who is often out more will benefit from exercise, be happy and build a much closer bond with you on a walk. By letting the dog take part in most things, you create a good team - because it works together with you.
