Coloradans Enjoy Walking Their Dogs a Lot More Than Much of America
Millions of Americans own dogs that love to be taken out for a walk, but the Centennial State's love of doing so seems to be greater than many states.
How many times do you take your dog out for a walk every week? 10? 20? This isn't about just "letting the dog go outside," this is about a full-on walk.
It can be a lot of work, from finding the time, getting ready, taking the actual walk, and then getting a treat and calming down, afterward; if you live in an apartment building, it can become a big "project" for the human and their eager companion.
Over 2,100 "pet parents" across America were surveyed, about their habits of getting their "fur-babies" out for some exercise with a walk or a jog. The results found that Colorado comes in at #5 for states giving their dogs the most exercise.
The survey also showed that Coloradans walk their dogs just over nine times a week (9.08%) which is 26.5% more than the national average of 7.7 walks. That's a lot. It's great news for 'Sundance' and it's good for Sundance's owner, too; they're both getting some fresh air and exercise.
With Colorado being so beautiful with more and more great trails for taking a dog for a walk on, it seems logical that we'd rock this list. Though Alabama made us look kind of lazy by being #1 with 10.45 walks per week.
