We all know that dogs love walks, and why wouldn’t they? It’s the perfect opportunity for them to spend some quality time with their owners, and they kill their boredom by stepping outside the house. For us, dog parents, the main reason we take them out on walks is for them to get some exercise.
Encouraging our dogs to exercise will keep them healthy, and it serves as an outlet for them to use up their stored energy, making them behave better when at home. Especially if you have a high-energy pooch like a sheepdog. From the name itself, anyone can tell that these pups have a lot of energy in store.
This is one of those dog breeds that you shouldn’t get if you plan to leave them cooped up at home. If you don’t take them out to stretch their legs, then don’t be surprised if they show destructive behavior. On top of the benefits we’ve mentioned, your dog will love you for it.
The sheepdog in this viral video definitely loved his mom for taking him out on a walk. In fact, he loved it so much that he was jumping up in the air with excitement, not a sight that we often see. What’s more amusing was the height of the jumps he was making. This pup looked like he’s ready to be taken to a dog show.
The viral video, which was posted on Instagram, has reached over 2.6 million views in less than a month! It’s just a short video, but it goes to show how dogs’ antics can get people talking. Some of the comments were suggesting that perhaps the walk was not enough exercise for him, so he had to jump to spend more energy.
Some users, however, were a little puzzled by the mom’s reaction. She never batted an eye, and she just kept on walking like nothing peculiar was happening beside her. Perhaps this was standard fare for the dog’s mom. Nevertheless, the video was entertaining, and we hope to see more of this pup in the future.
