Owning a Dog gives you more workout than you have guessed

Dog owners get more exercise than those who do not own them

Dog ownership has been linked to increased physical activity, especially when combined with walks with a pet. The study’s findings show that people who walk their dogs get about six hours more exercise each week than people who do not. The study also found that people who own dogs are less likely to be obese than those who do not own pets.

There are many benefits of having a dog. Not only does it provide the extra motivation that humans need to stay in shape, but it can also help prevent the development of chronic diseases. A recent study showed that German dog owners spend an average of an hour more exercising each day than non-dog owners. The lead researcher of the study cautions against getting a dog simply to get more exercise.

The study also showed that owners of dogs were more likely to walk briskly than people who do not own a dog. In fact, the study found that dog owners had a higher heart rate when walking than those who did not own a pet. The CDC classifies this as moderate-intensity exercise, and prior studies have shown that moderate-intensity walking is as beneficial as running. It helps reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Moreover, the CDC recommends that people with dogs get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each week.

A study conducted in Michigan showed that people who own a dog walk their pets more often than non-owners. Dog owners walked their dogs seven times a week and for about two hours per week, compared with those who did not own a dog. This finding was largely due to adult dog walkers. Children in households with dogs did not walk their dogs regularly.

Research has also shown that dog owners get more exercise than people without dogs. In a study of hundreds of households in the community of Liverpool, researchers found that people who walk with their dogs get more than 300 minutes of moderate exercise each week compared to people without a dog. However, the study noted that dog walking was not the sole source of exercise for dog owners.

Several studies have shown that dog owners get more exercise than people who do not own a dog. However, most studies focused on single-person households and have not examined households with multiple members. These results may be misleading as they do not account for the role of children and adults in these households. In multi-person households, dog owners may actually get more exercise because their pets are more active than they are.

A study by the American Heart Association found that dog ownership is linked to an increased chance of living longer. The results of this study found that dog owners were 33 percent less likely to die from a heart attack than those without a pet. Furthermore, owners with pets also had a reduced risk of having a stroke.
