But dogs are a lot like people. Sure, we take them for walks...usually the same old boring route. Make no mistake...they are just happy to be out with us in the fresh air, but they too need some variety. Taking them for a visit to a "dog friendly" home is a great outing for them. They can explore the yard or house, be around new people and generally they tend to be more well adjusted when they have new things to stimulate their minds and noses. They eat less and sleep better after a visit too!
So try and incorporate some variety in your dog's day. Even if it's just a new route to walk, you will notice that your pet will be much happier.
