While walking the dog is a great way to keep your dog healthy and happy, it has the same benefits for us! The amount of calories you burn while walking the dog will vary based on your height, weight, gender, age and fitness level but some estimate you can burn around 200 calories per hour! Add in a few hills and obstacles and that number will only increase.

Check out this great calculator so you can figure out for yourself approximately how much you burn walking your pooch!

Now lace up your shoes, leash up the dog and head out for some bonding/exercise with Fido!
