I found this article a few days ago and I completely see where the author is coming from. I visited the gym less because I felt bad leaving that sweet little face at home, plus I just loved spending time with him! Like the author's dog, Monty spent a lot of time on our walks sniffing things, so our walks were a bit slower. Not that I minded, it was his time to get out and explore and I loved that.
The author gives some great tips for how to have 'go out and explore walks' and 'workout walks' with dogs.
When I get my next pup, I will definitely try these out. Although...with Westies and those short little legs...I am not entirely sure how fast we will be moving. Hehe.
