There are so many products out there these days for doggie fitness that seem really complicated to use. Why not just go for an old fashioned dog walk around the neighborhood to burn extra calories?! Chuy loves to go for walks and I enjoy getting out of the office and taking in the fresh air and scenery. As part of our quest to get fit in 2014, Chuy and I will be doing a lot more walking!
To truly enjoy a walk with your dog, here are five irresistible dog walking essentials, recommended by Chuy and I.
The Wacky Paws Sport Travel Harness is ideal for pet parents who frequently go on long walks and hikes with their dogs.Instead of bearing the burden of having your pockets overfilled with keys, wallet, dog treats, doggie bags, etc. why not let your companion assist you. When your dog carries a backpack, it gives them a “job” and helps them focus during walks.
We take our BlissPaws bowl everywhere! It’s collapsible and clips right on your leash. I use this during our walks to give Chuy water or food when we are traveling.

If you are walking your dog during the evening or early morning hours, this is a must have! It will help other people see your dog and avoid accidents.
I know it’s a controversial topic in the dog world, but I’m actually a fan of the retractable leash. I believe they are very useful as long as you use them properly. I have my eye on this leash from Kong because it serves two purposes, it’s a leash and it holds your waste bags so you don’t have to clip one on!
I LOVE my Dawggie Go Pack! I use this all the time during my walks with Chuy. I can fit my phone, ID, cash/credit card, and even poop bags all inside! The best part is that it attaches to your leash. This is perfect for when we take walks to the beach/boardwalk and want to grab a bite to eat outside!
