A dog can bring a lot of joy into your life. But owning a dog also takes work. You need to play with your dog, keep him healthy and well groomed, and of course, take him for plenty of walks.

Dogs love going for walks. Just show a dog its leash and it will probably start wagging its tail with excitement. Walks aren’t just their chance to get some exercise, they’re also an opportunity to socialize. And sometimes, dog walks can be social experiences for dog owners, too. Hear Amy talk to Jason about taking her dog for walks.

小狗能为你的生活带来无限乐趣。但是养狗也需花费很多精力。你需要和小狗玩耍,让它保持健康的身体,毛发修剪得体,当然,还要经常带它散步。

小狗喜欢散步。只要让小狗看到它的皮带,它就可能开始兴奋地摇摆自己的尾巴。散步并不仅仅是让它们做做运动,同时还可以让它们加入社交圈。有时候,遛狗也可以成为狗主人的社交体验。听听艾米和詹森讨论有关遛狗的事情。

Amy:  I feel so bad, I didn’t take my dog for a good walk today.

Jason:  Oh really? Can’t she just run around in the yard and stuff?

Amy:  She can. We have a fenced backyard, and we definitely let her out there to play and do her business. But she needs a good walk every day, or she just has a lot of pent up energy, and I just feel really guilty.

Jason:  Right on. Where do you take her on your walk?

Amy:  Well, there’s a park just a couple blocks away from my house, so I usually take her there. But it’s not an off-leash park, so I have to risk either maybe getting in trouble, or just not let her off the leash. But she really prefers to be let off the leash so she can run around and play with other dogs.

Jason:  Yeah, does she get into it with other dogs at all? Is that a problem?

Amy:  No. Sometimes I get nervous that other dogs might not be really friendly, but my dog is the friendliest dog on the planet, and she’s also a little tiny thing that couldn’t really harm any other animals.

Jason:  I don’t know, it sounds like fun though. You get to meet a lot of dogs.

Amy:  There is such a great dog owner community. And once you own a dog, and you walk it, and you say hi to other dog owners, it’s almost as good as having, like, a secret handshake.

Amy feels guilty because she didn’t take her dog for a good walk. She tries to walk her dog every day, even though she has a fenced yard where the dog can play. Amy thinks it’s important to give her dog plenty of exercise and opportunity to socialize with other dogs.

Jason asks Amy where she usually takes her dog for walks. Amy says they go to a park near her house. The park doesn’t allow dogs to be off-leash, but sometimes Amy lets her dog off-leash anyway because she loves to run around and play with other dogs. Amy enjoys taking walks with her dog because she likes belonging to the dog owner community.

Do you like going for dog walks? Where do people walk their dogs in your city?

Dogs are the best in the life, so nice, so sweet, so loyal :).... When I was teenager I used to walk my dog off-leash, that was beacuse I lived in the downtime. I remember that I had to wake up early and call my dog to be ready and go out of the house, he allways got disappear for sometime while I was looking for him, everytime was the same….....He used to ran for the streets and open areas, greating some dog friend jejeje…... and then came back to home when I was stand up in from of of the door of my house waiting for him. I loved my dog. I miss those times.

I had a dog, a very nice one. She was a black toy poodle. My doggy lived with me for  almost 18 years. She was very lovely and devoted. I loved  taking her for walks. We walked along the streets and never chose a special place though there are such places in my city. Unfortunately she  is not on the Earth any longer. I still miss her…

A week ago I  volunteer  to walk my neighbour´s german shepherd , while in the park  he was in the necessity to do his ” business ”, I made the mistake not to scoop up  afterwards  and this didn´t go  unnotice by a jogger  who  fired up  at me  a volley of  angry words .I felt  ashamed because  I knew  that I was in   a community park  and people walk  around and through it.  Looking at my dog  I told him  : buddy, because of you  I had to eat  the scolding of that guy, next time be sure to wear diapersUndecided

I think having a dog is a big responsibility. I don’t have a dog, but when I have my own house with a courtyard, I diffinetely want to have a dog. Well in our city we have plenty of parks, but I think you cannot unleash your dog there as well as there are many children walking in the park. I have a cat now, and I have no problem with her – she walks on her own :)

No. Dogs are not supposed to be held in cities, in apartments. They need space.
