What is so important about a structured walk??
If you've ever done a training session with me before or we have just spoken you probably have heard me use the phrase structured walk again and again and again. Not a lot of people understand why the structured walk is so important so I thought of a good comparison...
A few months ago I was having some heart issues, falling asleep driving, and just being a bit more anxious than normal. I was completely exhausted all the time. I started going to the gym and when I would go I would just do some basic treadmill or bike, maybe some weights here and there. These things made me sweat a little bit but I was pretty much on my phone texting or doing dog rescue stuff the whole time, never really engaged. My head was never in it. I would work out until I felt like stopping and when I got tired I didn't push myself any further. Then I decided to try taking a class. Since then, my life has changed. I now go to SPIN religiously as well as some personal training and some other classes. I am being pushed SO SO SO hard that I walk out of classes soaking with sweat and I am ready to go for the entire day. I am mentally focused, less anxious, building some self confidence, and not nearly as tired. As I am in these classes, I am so incredibly focused. I do not check my phone I just do whatever they tell me to do. It is almost like I am in a completely different world while I am there. This is SO different than what I was doing before and the benefits have been amazing.
SO why am I posting this on my dog training page? What I am doing for the last 6 months is like going on daily structured walks. No sniffing, no stopping, no making my own decisions. Just plain focus, lots of mental stimulation which makes the whole day different. When your dogs are not getting structured walks and just free play in a big yard or walks where they do whatever they want, the rest of the day for them is very unsettling because at no point are they being challenged or using their brains. Dogs NEED challenges, especially working breeds. If they are not challenged, they get into trouble. They have issues, they are too hyper, they are anxious, they are aggressive.
Let's help our dogs learn to focus and give them a good work out for their mind, body, and soul and take them on at least one structured walk a day. They will thank you for it by being much more well behaved and much better listeners!
