If you want to get fit get a dog, or so the old saying goes. So just how far does your dog walk you each week?
I have been measuring the walks that we use on a regular basis with Teo & Tigra, and have worked out how far we, and they walk each week.
They ‘walk’ further as they are off the lead typically eight (8) times a week.
Stats are below, would be interested if this is above or below average, and how it stacks up with your own walks.
We have four (4) walks that we use regularly:
1. The Nature Reserve: a 5.6km walk (3.6km off the lead) which we do four (4) mornings a week and two (2) evenings a week. As they off the lead I think it fair to assume that they do at least an additional 1.6km so let’s say this is a 7.2km walk for the dogs.
2. The Beach: a 3.6km walk all off the lead which we do two (2) mornings a week. As they are off the lead and love to run the beach I think it is fair to assume that they do at least an additional 1.6km so let’s say this is a 5.2km walk for the dogs.
3. The Block: a 2.4km walk around the streets which we do at least six (6) times a week.
4. Comfort Break: a 1km small circuit to let them do their business which we do at least eight (8) times a week.
Adding all that up you get:
