The Pup Power List

 

We have all been told at some point in our lives to do more exercise and a good way is to put it into our everyday life…get off the bus 1 stop early, take the stairs, walk the dog…..but how much weight you walk off depends on your dog.

We take a look at which dog breeds will help you to burn the most calories….
