Health News showed people who walked their dogs generally walked about an  hour longer per week than people who owned dogs but did not walk them. The study appears in the current Journal of Physical Activity and Health.

"Obviously you would expect dog walkers to walk more, but we found people who walked their dog also had higher overall levels of both moderate and vigorous physical activities," he said. "There appears to be a strong link between owning and walking a dog and achieving higher levels of physical activity, even after accounting for the actual dog walking."

The study also shows the social and human/animal bond aspects of owning a dog that has been shown to have a positive impact on quality of life. So get that lead out and start walking!  Not only will you improve your health and feel better, but you will also have a very happy dog.

This study is a good reason to borrow my neighbour's dog a few times a week!  A dog really is a man's best friend.
