Walking the Dog
Walking the dog makes for a healthier dog owner and a happier community, a new study finds. The study, from The University of Western Australia (UWA) in collaboration with the WALTHAM Centre for Pet Nutrition, found that dog walkers are physically active on more days of the week and dog walking can help people feel safer in their neighborhood.

People who walked their dog achieved at least 30 minutes of physical activity on more days per week than non-dog walkers, helping them to meet the World Health Organization recommendation of at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week. The study also highlights the broader community benefits of pet ownership.
Almost 60 per cent of dog walkers in Australia and the US reported feeling safer when walking with their dog and women who walked their dogs were more likely than men to feel safer.
Thanks, pooches!

  1. Well as a member I definitely have a matter! I have been a member of peach state for over 30 years, and once you think things are getting easier , they’ve gotten worse. To cut to the chase its straight out robbery how you guys have things set up, and blame it on the system as if its not a human running it! why do members get charged for you all to transfer money out of our savings to cover ourselves, as if your doing me a favor? Then you hold payments until you know its going to mess up a members account and have the account over draw and its the “computers fault and its out of our control” as the CSR team is trained to say. The more my account continues to dwindle my hard earned, self employed money with over draft fees and you can see that I bust my ass trying to avoid it from happening something always goes wrong! I don’t have direct deposit, I deposit majority of my earnings physically myself!! If you all can find another way to work with members and make things politically fair, not only will i close all accounts open , I’m going to get a petition, blog, and news media involved on this scheme, cause I’m over it!!!
