Walking your dog is good for your own health and also for your dog's wellbeing. More active dogs are less prone to arthritis and joint pain as they age. On your end, walking can help keep your heart and mind healthy. If you've been meaning to walk your dog more often, October 1-7 is the week to start making that goal a reality. It's Walk Your Dog Week, and our real estate agents recommend visiting one of these Wichita parks to get started.
