Tayla being contemplative

Quick tip: Early walks

When do you walk your dogs? We’ve had a routine for a while now where during the week they get walked after work, and on the weekend they get walked a few times starting from about 10am. The one thing we’ve noticed, walking in the morning is so much easier.

Tayla is troublesome to walk at the best of times. She is highly energetic, easily distracted, and fairly relentless. She is getting better, but still a hassle. We’ve found when walking her early in the morning she is happy, doesn’t pull, listens to what you say, and is generally pleasant to walk.

Walking in the morning means the dogs have plenty of energy, they are still relatively happy and alert, but without being pent up and anxious like they may be after being pent up all day.

If you have a dog that is difficult to walk and you have the choice of doing it in the morning or after work, then try it out.

Clearly a tie in with another quick tip

  1. Hey! Can I first say how much your blog has helped me! while doing research before getting my husky I always found your site to be my favorite and one I trust. Keep up the great work!

    I have a 3 month old siberian husky! I work nights and get home at 2:30am and I take Wayland on a 2 mile walk/jog so he’ll wake up when I do and he loves it. He sleeps a for a few hours before I get there and now I find him waiting for me upon my arrival. He always seems so happy and excited on our walks too. But he minds well and knows when we be back he gets a drink then it’s time or bed. We also walk him multiple times in the day(not very long ones since its summer in NY right now) because he gets bored in our apartment:)

    1. Hey @molly craig I just got my husky a couple of weeks ago and i live in nyc how is it housebreaking your husky in your apartment?

  2. My husband and I have a 9 month old female named Sassy, and her name suits her personality to a T. We walk her every morning about a half hour after she eats for a minimum 20 minutes on weekdays, before work – on the weekend it is more like an hour. About an hour after she eats in the evening, she gets to go for another hour walk. We find that she doesn’t get anxious or bored with that schedule, AND it forces me to get up earlier in the morning since its my job to do morning walk and my husbands job in the evening :)
