It’s the dog days of summer, so what better time to take your best friend on a walk. And you can do just that at the Naperville Downtown Two Bostons weekly community dog walk. The “paw” popular group meets every Thursday for an evening stroll near the riverwalk.
“It’s about 45 minute walk – so it’s great like how she’s trying to sniff everything – but socializing especially for the new pups or the dogs that are learning their ways, so it’s just great for socialization,” said Clare Gue the assistant manager at Two Bostons.
Why is Your Pet Getting Exercise Important?
Getting your furry friend some exercise is important because if you don’t they can show signs of physical frustrations.
“They become very bored and once they’re bored they’re destructive. So they’re going to be chewing on your couch, or chewing on your shoes anything like that,” said Gue. “So getting them out on the walks where they’re using their nose to smell around to play around with other dogs it keeps them busy. And then they’ll get tired so it helps get their brain moving.”
About The Community Dog Walk
The walk takes dog lovers to Centennial Beach and back to Two Bostons, but not before making some stops at the Jaycees Park and near the Carillon.
The group meets every Thursday, weather permitting, at 6:30 p.m. and walks will continue through October.
