8 Things You Need To Control (And Enjoy) Your *Very Active * Dog

Growing up, I had what many people would define as a "spirited" dog. Our neighbors may have gone as far as to say possessed, but we're not here to argue semantics. Whenever we came home — whether it was after a two-week vacation or a 5-minute errand trip to shop — he would barrel the full weight of himself into our arms. And he wasn't a small dog either.

When we brought him on walks he would sprint ahead as far as his leash would let him and try to pull us along with him. He definitely walked us more than we walked him. Some dogs just seem to have a bit more energy than others — which is absolutely amazing... as well as totally exhausting.

If you have an active dog, you may be familiar with this dynamic. Although we love them, they can sometimes be a little difficult to take care of. These pet supplies dedicated to the active dog will certainly help. Check them out below.
