Walking your dog should be an EVENT, at least for your dog...not just a five minute walk for them to do their "business" and then back in the house.

PETA suggests you stop RUSHING them.

Here are some dog walking tips...

1.  It's a big deal it is for them especially if you don't have a yard.  "It's more than a bathroom break, it's an excursion."

2.  Don't constantly yank them along with you.  Give them time to sniff stuff.  Sniffing things is your dog's way of reading the news.

3.  Don't use a leash and collar..a harness is better and won't hurt their neck as much.

4.  Be less of an owner and more of a companion.
