Activities for Papillons (and You)

Here are some suggestions of what to do with you Papillon:(Other than showing your dog)Exercise with your Pap.

Take your Pap on a bike ride. Products are available that allow you to attach a leash to the bicycle. This keeps the dog away from the wheels and helps prevent accidents caused by holding the dog's leash in your hand on the handlebars.

Jogging: for your and your Paps best health Some owners take their Papss jogging with them, which offers great exercise when done safely. Before you start running with your Papillon, take it to the veterinarian for a complete checkup. Even dogs that appear healthy may have a physical problem, such as elbow or hip dysplasia, that could worsen with strenuous exercise. If you have a very young or older Papillon, make sure running won't hurt it.

Hiking/ WalkingTake you Pap on a walk, or hike. A healthy Papillon can easily walk with you a 4-5 mile hike.

Walking speedy for 30 minutes 4-5 times / week will keep your Pap in good balance, out of trouble at home, more relaxed and, of course, very happy and ,not to forget.... It will shed pounds off you if needed and keep you in a all over good shape!!
