This is such a great piece. What a way to start the day. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to <a href="https://www.mytechloid.com/mp3-juice-free-mp3-stream-music-download-mp3juices-mp4-video-files/">read more</a> articles from you.
I’m not sure if such a small sample could really give accurate data on dog walking per state. And under what criteria were the participants selected. We’re the numbers from each state the same? And we’re the same types of dogs used? For example a smaller lap dog needs less walking than a larger active breed.
There is a slackness of a lot of things in the states of the USA mentioned as low in dog walks per day and so the figfures are telling.
In Germany there is a strong possibility that laws will be brought in to make compulsory with dog owning, two dog walks per day for adult, able dogs amounting to no less than an hour.
If this was introduced in to the USA it would help eliminate the many owners who are poor with management and care of dogs.
