Both cats and dogs need exercise to stay healthy, both for physical and mental health. Dogs enjoy walks just as much for the mental stimulation of smelling and investigating new things as they do for the actual exercise. They are naturally social creatures that benefit from getting out of the back yard and experiencing new environments. Walking is a great bonding time for you and you dog! And while some cats can be trained to a leash, they can provide more of a challenge when it comes to encouraging exercise. Using interactive toys in the house, such as a laser pointer or wind up toys, can help get your cat moving. Or check out this video of a cat running wheel:
