Keep Your Dog Fit and Happy in the Newmarket/Aurora area – Your Go-To Guide!

Welcome, Newmarket. Aurora, Holland Landing and Sharon pet parents!

We all know that a happy pet is an active pet, but just how crucial is regular exercise to your furry friend’s well-being? Spoiler alert: it’s as essential as the unconditional love they shower on us! In this blog post, we’re diving into the wonders that simple daily walks or a game of fetch can work for your pet’s health. We’re here to stir you and your four-legged pal into an active routine that will have tails wagging with joy.


Physical Health Benefits:

Heading outdoors or playing indoors isn’t just a treat for your pet; it’s a health mandate. Exercise is the ramp leading to a pet’s optimal health. A steady fitness regimen helps keep those sneaky extra pounds from creeping up on Fido or Whiskers. Have you noticed your pal’s heart thumping cheerfully after a brisk walk? That’s the sound of improved cardiovascular health and the booting out of chronic diseases like diabetes or joint problems. Like a well-oiled machine, your pet’s body will thank you for the daily tune-up!


Mental Health Benefits:

It’s not just about the body; it’s also about the brain! Regular activity provides an outlet for your pet’s pent-up energies, curbing the doggie- or kitty-blues. Stress and anxiety? Those can scamper away with each leap and bound your pet takes. For the brain buffs: cognitive function gets a healthy nudge, keeping mental faculties sharp-as-a-tack amidst the frolic.


Exercise Types:

Our Newmarket/Aurora/Sharon and Holland Landing stomping grounds are a treasure trove for pet-friendly activities. Hit the Fairy Lake Park for a serene walk, Enjoy the Tom Taylor Trail or Bailey Ecological Park or maybe a Vivian Forest hike.    Psst – did you even know you can rent pool time at a local indoor/headed dog pool in Pickering.   Or join in on some of the fun with agility or other “dog sports” at Unified K9 or other training facilities?  Remember, variety is the spice of life – and that goes double for your pet’s workouts!


Exercise Safety Tips:

Let’s keep our workouts with whiskers injury-free! Don’t go from zero to a 100.   Like us, if your pet is not used to lots of exercise don’t take them on a 5K hike, build them up to it.   Keep in mind your pets age and any health challenges.    Ensure Fido has access to fresh water and take breaks as needed.  Always watch for signs of your pet flagging, like excessive panting or limping. Our local weather can be as changing as a chameleon, so stay prepped to modify your exercise plans accordingly.


Now that we’re in the loop about the ins and outs of pet fitness, there’s no excuse to laze about. Regular exercise for our pets should be as routine as our morning coffee.
