The dog is the most common pet besides the cat. In addition, it possesses qualities of empathy that make it suitable to be a perfect friend of man. Certainly the man should take pleasure in the company of his dog. In addition, even the dog always has the pleasure of practicing any activity with his owner.
BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR MAN AND DOG
In particular, for any animal, prolonged inactivity is harmful. So, it is always useful to practice moderate but constant physical activity. In addition, movement produces advantages in keeping blood lipid values under control. That is cholesterol and triglycerides. In addition, endurance physical activity, i.e. movement of moderate but prolonged intensity, produces great benefits. In fact, aerobic activity has a fat burning action because it uses the storage fats as an energy source. It also speeds up metabolism and allows you to reduce body weight and control cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
So a long walk or a moderate runwith the most common pet is an example of aerobic training or cardio training. That is, they are a type of aerobic physical activity that is very different from anaerobic activity. In fact, the main difference is represented by the duration and intensity of the exercises. That is, in anaerobic activity the body mainly uses fat as fuel. Whereas, in aerobic activity, the fuel for the muscles is represented by sugars and fats. So, fats are used as fuel for anaerobic activity. So a prolonged walk at an average fast pace or a slow run practiced frequently will produce enormous benefits to the body and mind both to man and his dog.
TRAINING AND BENEFIT FOR US AND THE MOST COMMON PET
A long walk with your dog or a light run will have great benefits for the health and mind of humans and dogs. In this situation, in both there will be a production of endorphins at the level of the central nervous system. So these substances will produce for both an improvement in the mood, the feeling of well-being and the immune capacities. In fact, it is known that the moderate sportsman is a person who is more serene psychologically and physically healthier as well as being more resistant to diseases. In addition, he is able to control his appetite more effectively.
That is, the search for satisfaction through food is compensated by the sensation of pleasure produced by the endorphins that are generated during light physical activity. In addition, another source of endorphins is represented by the visual stimulus of light perceived by the eyes when moving outside. Another advantage of movement is the preservation of correct muscle tone for both. Furthermore, moving along the predetermined path keeps the propioception skills, that is the perception of the surrounding space, efficient.
ADVICE FOR A RISK-FREE SPORTS ACTIVITY FOR MEN AND THE MOST COMMON PET
Moderate sport certainly has positive effects on the body and psyche of all animals then for our most common pet too. For istance, it is very important to take precautions. In particular, it is important to understand when the environmental situation advises against practicing physical activity. In fact, the excessive cold outside would expose the dog and owner to the risk of illnesses or even simple colds that would nullify the advantages of physical activity. So my advice is to safeguard your health and your dog by avoiding days that are too cold, rainy or windy. In addition, the speech is the same for summer days that are too hot and muggy, that is, with a humidity level that is too high.
At least moderate physical activity for humans and animals is a type of constructive stress that pushes the body to improve by increasing its capabilities. In fact, it increases cardiac efficiency by improving the ejection force, the ability to pump blood, and the maintenance of heart rhythm. Hence the latter factor has a preventive effect on cardiac arthmias typical of old age. In addition, physical activity keeps the blood vessels efficient while maintaining their elasticity. All these positive factors generated by healthy movement make the blood less prone to thrombosis and reduce plaque formation. In addition, glycemic control decreases the inflammatory effects of a high blood glucose rate. So, the amount of sugar that enters the cells is reduced and is converted into storage fats. In the same way, an osteoporosis prevention mechanism is created.
Certainly this shaping activity is flanked by cells called osteoclasts that eliminate excess bone matrix. There are four regulators of this modeling action. 1) Parathormone: promotes the release of calcium from the bones, 2) Calcitonin: hinders and balances the action of the parathyroid hormone, 3) Vitamin D: promotes the deposition of calcium on the bones, 4) Movement: the mechanical stimulus on a type of osteocyte called osteoblasts promotes bone formation.
In other words, a healthy and moderate movement and a sufficient reception of ultraviolet rays are essential for a good health of the bone tissue of humans, dogs and any animal. That is, sufficient exposure to sunlight is useful, which favors the production of vitamin D.
Furthermore, the perception of light rays by the retina has positive effects on the production of endorphins that produce a general feeling of well-being. They also have a positive action on all body functions. In particular as regards the dog, the exposure of the hair to ultraviolet rays also has a positive effect on the contrast of bacteria and parasites of the hair.
DO NOT OVERLOOK THE PRECAUTIONS
Obviously, I conclude with some advice on some precautions to be taken before and during physical activity for us and for our most common pet so for both the owner and the dog. First of all, choose the day suitable for physical activity. Secondly, dose the amount of activity based on the abilities and training of man and dog. In addition, another very important thing is to be attentive to hydration and salt balance. In fact, the man who suffers an excessive loss of water and salts could perceive a feeling of tiredness and malaise. Obviously a man must be in a suitable physical condition to practice a physical activity even if light.
So I would recommend a simple electrocardiogram from your primary care physician to be on the safe side. Furthermore, the dog does not have a good perception of fatigue and the sense of thirst. So a lack of hydration, a strong salt deficit, a poor perception of fatigue or even a reduced training to perform demanding physical activities can create serious problems for the dog, including severe heart failure due to excessive loss of potassium with sweat or severe malaise. caused by dehydration or hypoglycemia.
