A new study aims to identify the factors that influence dog walkers to take their dog for walks. It found that the most common reason for skipping a walk is bad weather, but other factors can also discourage people from taking their dogs for walks. Getting your dog used to a walk can help prevent behavioral problems and teach your pet new smells.
One reason dog owners don't walk their dog is because they are embarrassed to walk their dog in public. Other reasons include boredom, a lack of socialization, and a lack of exercise. Research shows that walking a dog can reduce both its owner's and pet's risk of obesity. If you don't have time to take your dog for a walk, consider hiring a dog-walking service to do it for you.
Another factor that motivates dog owners to walk is the psychological benefit they receive from having a dog. Pets provide humans with companionship, support, and encouragement. In addition, prior studies suggest that dog owners are influenced by persuasive materials promoting the benefits of walking a dog. Changing your perspective on why you walk your dog can have a profound effect on your motivation. For example, you might realize that you feel proud when you do something good for your dog, and this will encourage you to get moving.
Other studies suggest that dog owners are more active than their non-dog-owning counterparts. However, these studies are inconsistent, and some dog owners aren't walking at all. The results from previous studies are limited, and they are based on only one household member, making them less representative of the general population. In this study, dog owners were asked to complete surveys that asked about their physical activity, and responses were analyzed using hierarchical logistic regression and linear multivariable regression. Those results were then compared to non-dog owners.
The study found that dog owners were more likely to exercise than non-dog owners, and they walked longer. It found that about 64 percent of dog owners walk their dog at least 150 minutes per week. Even a few short walks a day will help you reach your weekly exercise goal.
Overall, dog walkers were less likely to be involved in street crime and were more likely to report more pleasant aesthetics and pedestrian infrastructure. Non-dog owners tended to spend less time walking and reported less leisure time than dog owners. However, they were also less likely to report a higher level of crime than dog walkers.
Walking dogs has many health benefits for both humans and dogs. Dogs who get plenty of exercise are more likely to be leaner and healthier, and it's been shown to improve the bond between owner and pet. But despite these benefits, up to 40% of dog owners never walk their dog.
