If you need to burn a few extra calories because you have just been slammed at work or just could not go to the gym that day, then play with your dog. Have them chase you or throw their favorite toy and then chase them. Try to keep the game going for a good 10 minutes. You will be amazed how heated up you will get by running back and forth and going around furniture. You heart rate will increase and you start to burn more calories the longer your dog wants to play. When they get tired, then that is when to stop. Don’t stop because you are tired, stop when they have had enough.
