10 Things No One Tells You About Walking Your Dog

Walking your dog is a lot of fun... but there's a few things no one warns you about!

Posted on

1. You stop at every tree....bush....lampost.... wall....leaf..... for your dog to pee....

How your dog manages to store so much pee is a mystery..... But be prepared, the second you leave your house EVERYTHING becomes a potential pee spot.

2. Walking more than one dog at once is impossible and leads to a tangle

Having two dogs is great... walking them, not so much! Without a doubt you'll end up in a tangled lead mess...

4. Your dog never comes back the same colour

Dirty is the new clean in the doggy world!

5. Your dog will step in its own poop…. or even worse another dog’s poop

Or poop at the most inconvenient time.... Note to self ALWAYS remember poop bags, even at Crufts!

7. They will try to eat ANYTHING…. Cigarette butts, leaves, poop, bugs, grass, stones, litter - you name it they’ll attempt to eat it.

You'll have a new found appreciation for rubbish bins and internally rage at anyone you see dropping litter, as you know your dog is already eyeing the rubbish up as a tasty meal.

8. Walking in the rain is like an episode of total wipeout…. round the bin, over the bench, jump the puddle

You will fall over at some point.... no matter how hard you try to stay balanced.

9. Your dog will get stuck in the strangest of places

They get a little adventurous and immediately regret it..... Cue dog stuck in a tree trunk.... dog stuck in mud.... dog stuck under a bench.... dog stuck in a bin...

10. If you have a puppy EVERYONE will want to stroke it…. so a 10 minute walk becomes half an hour

Children, Babies, Adults and Other Dogs are obsessed with puppies... so prepare for your puppy to be poked, touched, stroked and sniffed..... leave the house with plenty of time spare..... or walk it in the middle of the night to avoid people...

But it’s all worth it in the end when you see that excitable little face!

and realise you get to enjoy the next hour of peace and quiet whilst your dog sleeps :)
