April Adventures – Celebrate Active Dog Month with These 10 Tail-Wagging Tips! 

Keeping your dog active is important for their physical and mental well-being. Here are some ways to help them stay active: 

#1: Regular Walks 

Take your dog for daily walks to provide them with exercise and mental stimulation. 

#2: Playtime 

Engage in interactive play sessions with toys such as balls, frisbees, or tug toys. 

#3: Dog Sports 

Consider enrolling your dog in activities like agility, flyball, or obedience training classes. 

#4: Hiking 

Take your dog on hikes to explore new environments and give them a chance to exercise. 

#5: Swimming 

If your dog enjoys water, swimming can be a great low-impact exercise. 

#6: Running or Jogging 

If you’re a runner, consider taking your dog along for a run to help them burn off extra energy. 

#7: Fetch 

Playing fetch is a great way to exercise your dog while bonding with them. 

#8: Dog Parks 

Take your dog to a dog park where they can run around and socialize with other dogs. 

#9: Obstacle Courses 

Set up a simple obstacle course in your backyard or local park for your dog to navigate. 

#10: Training Exercises 

Incorporate training exercises into your daily routine to keep your dog mentally engaged and active. 


It’s important to tailor your dog’s activity level to their age, breed, and health status. Always consult with your veterinarian before starting a new exercise routine for your dog. See below for links to our favorite active gear for dogs on Petflow!
