Dog walking is free fun for you and your pooch. On Earth Day, we have four ways you can make your next walk even better.

4 Ways to "Green" Dog Walking on Earth Day:

  1. Get fit: Walking is great exercise for both you and Fido. Don't drive to the gym, just head out the door and shed the pounds with Fido.
  2. Pick up: I'm not just talking about poop -- keep an eye out for trash and recyclables, and pick them up too.
  3. Turn off: I'm talkin' TV, lights, laptops, etc. By turning off or powering down and heading out for a walk, you'll save electricity.
  4. Enjoy family: Turn walking the dog into a fun family activity, and observe nature while you're out there. Who knows, you may have the next (Charles) Darwin, (Ansel) Adams, (Jane) Goodall, or (Henry David) Thoreau on your hands.
