Walking made easy

As a stay-at-home mom, I often find myself home alone with a couple of kids, a couple of dogs and, lately, some gorgeous fall weather.

Playing in the backyard is fun, but a change of scenery is always nice. Giving your dog the opportunity to explore new and uncharted territory can make a huge difference, especially when it comes to behavior. Check out this PetMD slideshow for nine more benefits of walking your dog.

And then I discovered the hands-free leash along with the take two coupler. Of course, the coupler works best if your dogs are of similar size and walk at about the same speed.

A baby carrier allows me to wear my son on my back and the hands-free leash means my daughter can hold my hand and feel like she is helping walk the dogs. My dogs were never able to get the hang of walking with a stroller.

After our first walk in what felt like ages, I was feeling a little bit like a supermom. I only hope we don’t run out of beautiful fall weather to enjoy!
