Have you ever considered using your pet to go with you on long walks or when you exercise? You will be pleasantly surprised to find that they are great companions and can help to keep you motivated.

We all know that exercising isn’t exactly the most fun part of a diet program. Exercising can seem like work and it’s hard to get motivated enough to start. Even when you’re able to start, you find it difficult to stick to it.

Even though going to a gym or exercising with a family member or friend may be the way you do your routine, sometimes those people are not available or you can’t get to the gym. Then what? Instead of not doing anything, take your pet with you, he or she will love you for it!

Not all pets will be open to spending their time exercising with you, but some are willing to spend time with you no matter what you’re doing. Dogs are good companions for jogs and long walks.

They like to get out and see the world and smell the fresh air. They make good cohorts for your exercise plan because they’ll be excited about the pending exercise and you’ll feel obligated to engage no matter what!

Try to map out a schedule for when you’ll walk the dog. Having a set routine is beneficial for both you and your pet. If you live in a climate that has its ups and downs with weather, try to take an indoor walk with your dog on the treadmill.If you use a stationary bike, you may be surprised to find that your dog will stay right with you until your done!

Here’s another fun thing, music. I truly believe that pets love music and you can even use aromatherapy for your pets so instead of dreading the long walk or exercise routine, get out some aromatherapy oils, light a candle with essential oils that your canine will love and get to steppin’ or running. Your pet will be right there with you. There are even games you can play with your pet, especially dogs, that can keep you motivated to get your full day of essential exercises in.

Don’t feel like being in the gym? Exercise with your dog:
