Wrestlers are known for their active lifestyles. Between workouts and fights, wrestlers with dogs need to find something to do with their favorite pooches. Many choose to live an active lifestyle with their pet, which means that they need dogs that can keep up with them. While there are numerous activities that wrestlers could participate in with their dogs, we have a few that we recommend. Take a look at our list of activities that wrestlers can do with their dogs.
While this is the most obvious choice, it has to be on this list. Wrestlers will love rough-housing with their pooch, and what better way for both of you to get a little exercise and burn some energy. We love that this activity can be done in any weather for free at your home with no tools other than you and your pooch and maybe a treat at game's end. Limit your wrestling time to less than an hour to prevent overdoing it for your dog. While this isn't a hard activity, it can be easy to be too rough for your pooch. Additionally, take precautions to ensure that your pooch won't get hurt during your in-home wrestling matches.
To stay in peak shape, wrestlers need to do cardio exercise and lift weights. While dogs can't hit the weight room, they can accompany their owners on runs. Take your dog with you on your next run for a fun adventure. While you do need a day without bad weather to get outside and run, this is a free, easy activity that most dogs will have no problem participating in. Limit your time, especially at the beginning, to make sure you aren't pushing your dog too hard. If you are feeling really brave, you can even let your dog lead your runs.
If you are used to hitting the stationary bike at the gym, switch things up so you can spend more time with your dog. If you already have a bike, it won't cost very much to get started on this activity with your dog. All you need aside from a bike is a bike leash and some water. This is a moderately difficult task, because it requires a little training and building up endurance, but it won't take a lot of time out of your day. Unfortunately, you shouldn't take your dog out when the weather is bad, so stick to biking only on sunny days without harsh temperatures.
