    There's few better ways to relieve stress than dog walking, and, for this reason, I think it's the healthiest habit I've adopted in my lifetime. The exercise is just as much for them as it is for me. I take my dogs out twice a day, once at 4:30AM and, again, at 7PM. I have Type 2 Diabetes but control my blood glucose, entirely, through diet and walks with my dogs. The walks are performed, specifically, to knock down any glucose highs and keep my blood pressure low and stable. My highest recorded HA1C over the last five years: 5.4

    Our walks are daily/ 365. Sadly, during my many years of dog walking, I've never, consistently, seen one fellow walker during the morning walk, and only a couple during the evenings...

    That's OK with us. Staying fit requires focus and discipline. The fewer diversions from our walks, the better "we" like it.
