We all come up with excuses to not exercise everyday. Its much harder to say no when you know you will have a furry friend by your side, moving along with you.

 

Get Outside

For people who live alone, finding a way to bring animals into your exercise routine can be the perfect way to feel less isolated. Even for those of us who don’t live alone, sometimes it just helps to be around an animal who is social and ready to move, but won’t complain about going outside.

Happier animals

Whether you’re on a run with your dog, riding a horse, or doing yoga while being surrounded by baby goats, the animals you spend your time with will love every moment. Many animals love being around people because they can get a healthy dose of exercise and mental stimulation, while receiving plenty of affection.
