The Fun and Easy Way to Exercise Super-Energetic Dogs
Do you have a can't-stop, won't-stop kind of canine?
Do you have a can't-stop, won't-stop kind of canine? Some dogs only need a short, leisurely walk before they're pooped, while others seem to be powered by Everlast batteries! If your high-energy dog would like to be in a state of constant motion and you're running out of ways to tire him out, give biking together a try. A well-exercised dog is significantly less likely to act out, and biking with your dog definitely delivers in the exercise department; trotting next to a bike at a steady pace for a short time provides a better energy outlet than a long walk and is a great way to tire out a dog that wants to walk or run for far longer than you do. The Springer Dog Exerciser ($129) bike attachment lets you safely cycle with your dog, allowing your dog to run beside your bike. Springer's low-mounted, heavy-duty spring absorbs 90 percent of a dog's unexpected tugs, ensuring the rider keeps their balance while protecting the dog from traffic and the mechanics of the bike. So why not get out, enjoy the fresh air, and tire out your dog while you go for a spin? Who knows, you may both need a nap when you get home!
