Grab the leash and get moving! Live Healthy Iowa has gone to the dogs! Well, not completely, but we have created a new challenge to get you out and active with your pet during Iowa's cool, Spring weather.
Dog walking is great for your health. Studies have shown that people who regularly walk dogs may benefit from lower blood pressure, have a trimmer waistline and suffer from fewer chronic diseases. Dogs are a great accountability partner; keeping you active and on schedule.
