Dog Mood Heightened By Physical Activity?

A Reader Asks…

I had ran with my for a few months untiL i had got injured, and stopped. After I stopped running with him, he seemed alot more mopey and less energy. Well, i started running with him again these past few weeks and his mopeyness has dissapeared! His is much more happier than he was. Could that have any affect on his at all?

    It makes all the difference in the world. Not only is it the physical exertion he loves, running is something you and he do together. That makes it even more special.

    Absolutely!
    “exercise leads to the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain that alleviate pain, both physical and mental”
    Dogs and humans alike benefit from exercise. JRT are generally high energy, and require more stimulation than non-terrier breeds.
    This is a cool article regarding exercise – on humans, but it works both ways.http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/bb/neuro/ne...
