Walking Your Dog in the City
Many people living in the city own dogs. Whether living in a city or not, it’s still important to walk your dog or exercise him daily. If your city has a dog park, check it out and see if it’s somewhere you could take your dog for some free time off leash. Look for other areas on the outskirts of the city to walk your dog such as lakes or fitness trails. If you have to walk your dog on the city streets make sure you both stay on the sidewalk and yield to the pedestrians. Cross the streets at the crosswalks only. Wear reflective clothing and have your dog wear a reflective collar for added safety. Carry an extra leash along with water and treats for your pup to reward him along the way. For a list of suggested places to walk, ask your vet Somerville, MA for recommendations.
