Love it or loathe it, we can all agree that exercising is way more fun with friends. And if you’re looking for a workout buddy that will keep you motivated, is always on time and won’t complain about going the extra mile, then look no further than your four-legged pal.

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that dog owners are 57 to 77 percent more likely to meet the government’s activity targets (150 minutes a week) than those who don’t own dogs. According to researchers, people with dogs also felt more confident that they could find time for exercise regardless of other commitments, plus were more able to overcome workout barriers (ahem, that after work happy hour). So your loveable pup is basically your own personal Richard Simmons.




Want more good news? Even taking your furry friend for a brisk walk counts as exercise. Plus, if you and your pup increase your pace to 4.7 miles per hour, you’ll burn as many calories per mile as you would running. Not too shabby.
