To pee or not to pee?

Here's our top reasons (that's not a potty break) to take a stroll.

 

 

West Paw is happy to announce we've lowered our prices to bring you this quality line of made in the USA collars and leashes.

   

1. Training Opportunity

If your dog is a puller, the only way to foster good leash manners is to practice on a regular basis. Don’t forget the tasty treats to offer as positive reinforcement!

2. Mental Stimulation

Exploring different locations keeps dogs engaged by providing Fido the opportunity to explore new sights, sounds and smells. A happy dog is much less likely to shred your favorite shoes.

3. Strengthens Your Bond

When you explore new environments with your pup this can help build a trusting and strong relationship. Being a leader and protector encourages your pet’s confidence in you and strengthens your bond as a team. 

4. Keeps Dogs Healthy

All dogs regardless of their breed and age need physical activity. Exercise will keep their weight in a healthy range and prevent or alleviate a host of health problems.

5. Good for you too.

Regular walks can help you manage various conditions and improve your own health. Daily walks with your pup is a great way for you both to live a long and happy life.

  

Let's Go.
