You Might Be Walking Your Dog the Wrong Way

Are you committing a furry faux-pas when it comes to walking your dog? Probably, says the leader of one animal rights organization.

PETA president Ingrid Newkirk recently appeared on Seattle's Morning News with Dave Rossto explain the two major rules of taking daily walks with your four-legged friend.


Rule number one: Keep your pet safe.

"This is a human-dominated world. We have to look after [our pets]," Ingrid said when asked if dogs should wear leashes. "I would go with a harness."

She went on to explain that "collars can cause a lot of problems," and reminded dog owners to "never" use a choke or prong collar.


Rule number two: Don't rush the process.

"Let [your dog] sniff!" Ingrid said. "That's their way they read the news, that's their internet. Don't drag them along."

It's important to understand that going for a walk is "more than a bathroom break" for your pet.

"It's an excursion," the animal rights activist explained. "That’s a very special occasion for a dog, to be outside and to smell and to look. They don’t want to be stuck in a room all day with their legs crossed, hoping to go outside."

What are you waiting for? Grab a leash and go!
