To all the dog owners and lovers, do you ever pause and think about the calories of your dog? How those fascinating strolls with your pup can be a reason for burning calories for him and you as well. You may have thought about this but have never been able to break the methods to calculate those calories burned by your pup.

Just like us, dogs also come in different sizes. We adopt dogs of different ages, not necessarily young ones or fully grown up. Every dog has their specific energy level. And here let me clear you one thing, I am not talking about street dogs who walk from one corner to another.

I am highlighting those healthy walks on a regular basis. Such strolls refresh your mind, improve your heart health, and make you physically fit. We are not the only ones to get all these benefits, our fluff pups also gain these amazing benefits.

According to research, 10-pound dog would burn 32 calories when walking for one hour or 3.5 miles, whereas 15-pound dog would burn 48 calories and a 20-pound dog will burn 64 calories
