Win a Pedometer!


This week is Global Pet Expo, the largest pet industry conference in the US. During the multi-day show (which is not open to the public), the companies will be unveiling their new products in Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. The show area spans 14 football fields!


Last year we attended and had a great time…and put in many, many steps. This year we won’t be able to attend but we do have some special Global swag to share: a pedometer!

Count the number of steps that you take as you go through your day! How many steps do you think you take on your dog walks? Throughout your day as a whole? One lucky DogTipper reader will find out exactly how many steps they take with this pedometer!

  • Marilyn Nawara

    We walk approx. 3/4 mile a day. We have trails in the back field it’s 3/4 mile around the long way.

  • Lisa F.

    I would say my walk path is about half a mile.

  • SGilbert

    I have no idea maybe just less that a mile.

  • Helga

    I think around a mile.

  • dawn rasor

    Right now not much at all due to the ice still on our roads but in good weather I’d say a couple miles min.

  • Jim Hayes

    Not sure, but I do walk him for 35 minutes a day.

  • Barb U

    Not enough, I need to start walking them more often.

  • Darlene Owen

    When we walk them we walk about an hour at a pretty good pace so maybe a mile.

  • Heather Bridson

    I think we probably don’t walk that far, since I have 2…and they are impossible to walk I take 2 short walks a day usually..

  • Christine Aiello

    I think we probably walk about a half a mile. I’m trying to get her to walk further and further though. Her little legs don’t make it that far LOL!

  • Deena

    I am not sure how long we walk. I always lose track of time. This would help me know how far we walk.

  • HufflePup

    We probably walk a total of 2 miles everyday, broken up into 2-4 segments depending on his energy level 🙂

  • Holly E

    I think we walk maybe a half mile a day together. I’m trying to walk her more so she doesn’t end up with joint pain etc.

  • Danielle E

    About 1/2 a mile

  • Phoenixtl

    Half a mile.

  • Rachel T

    Maybe a mile on good days.

  • Cindy Conner Bowling

    Around 1/2 to 1 mile

  • dh_jax

    Not newly far enough….this would be great encouragement to walk them more and more often as usually we just play in the hard together or go places in the car versus taking actual walks. Thanks for the chance to win as I know they would love to go on more walks…

  • Pat Weldon

    2k a day

    widget has no space for 3/11 code Linus09

  • Jdace

    I am not really sure how far we walk but we walk for about an hour all over our farm every day. And the dogs walk way more than I do with all their zig zagging and running down a trail and then back to me again. I just wish I had the same energy they have.

  • sandy weinstein

    no place for the secret code for 3-11

  • sandy weinstein

    it varies, sometimes we walk a mile or so, but we play ball alot…and run …i live on 11 acres

  • Karen DeGraaf

    i walk a mile daily

  • sandy weinstein

    no place for secret code 3-11 lxxxx09

  • Wendy c g

    Maybe a half mile.

  • Ruckus the Eskie

    a mile

  • pmilner

    We always walk one half to one mile per day when the weather cooperates. Thank you for another super giveaway opportunity.

  • amweeks

    Unfortunately this winter my dog & I haven’t walked far at all. In the cold, snowy weather, he just goes out into the backyard. I’m afraid we both need to start walking again more!

  • Carissa Joslyn

    About a mile. He is a big husky mix & he gets tired, so we always have to cut it short. I used to always have to carry him home. :p

  • Jennifer P

    Not nearly far enough for either of us but I probably walk her 1/4 to 1/2 a mile a day, sometimes a bit more, occasionally a bit less.

  • CarolynH6

    1/4 mile easily around the neighborhood.

  • Shelly

    I don’t have a car and walk everywhere so would love one 🙂

  • Wen Budro

    Oh wow….I have no idea but it feels like a lot. Prob 30-60 minutes every 2 1/2 to 3 hours every single day.

  • lilyk

    not sure
