Take your dog out for a walk after you come back from a tiring day at work. Walking is the easiest form of exercise that will make your heart stronger, give you more energy and keep your blood pressure under check. Walking regularly will help in keeping your pet active and fresh. Begin slowly, cover a moderate distance, once your pet is used to it try increasing the distance.
No 2: Fetch the ball
This move is good to tone your tummy and make your pet happy at the same time. Hold a ball and sit down on the floor in the position of a sit-up. Pretend to throw the ball as you get up. You pet will run after it till he realizes that the ball is with you. Repeat the sit-ups till your dog supports your tricks.
No 3: Pet squats
This workout will help in toning your butt and thighs. Stand with your feet a shoulder distance apart. Squat and tease your pet with a ball. Rise and bring the ball above your head and make your dog jump to grab it.
No 4: Dance with your pet
If you or your workout buddy (your pet) is not in the mood to exercise, then you can dance to the tune of your favourite song! Make sure the music has the needed thump in it. It will be amusing to see your pet do some great moves! It will be like spending some quality time with your pet. Dance is one of the best forms of aerobic workout that burns calories, helps lowering blood pressure and improving muscle tone.

No.8: Running race
Throw a ball a little far and run along the dog to fetch it. It will be a competition as to who will reach first because you have a partner, and that too a very determined one; what if he is a dog? This workout will give you gym like benefits.
