8 Summer Activities That Burn Calories

Walking the Dog 1 of 9

A nice walk is a great low-impact workout for both you and Fido. Depending on how quickly you walk, the type of terrain you encounter (a hilly trail, a flat neighborhood sidewalk, etc.), you can burn more calories than just a leisurely stroll down the street, which would consume between 60 and 70 calories in 30 minutes' time.


  • Keep your dog on a leash.
  • Bring a pooper scooper or disposable bags with you.
  • Bring a portable water source for the dog.
  • Pause for a rest every few minutes to let your dog cool down.
