New Study Shows That Dogs Follow Their Owners’ Healthy Habits

Being active isn’t just great for your health, a new study shows it’s also good for your dog’s health. The University of Guelph conducted the international study of dog owners and found that physically active dogs have active owners… Not all that surprising, but important nonetheless.

Researchers say the results of the study are promising because pet obesity is prevalent. It’s estimated that 100 million cats and dogs in the United States are overweight or obese and that can cause health problems. We all want our pets to live as along as possible and to be happy and healthy, and no one wants extra vet bills. So get out there and go on some walks and hit up the parks, if at all possible! If physically unable, maybe you know someone who would love to help out. 🙂
