Walk the Dog

8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

To you, walking the dog may be about exercise. To him, it's all about the social life, explains Jean Donaldson, author of Dogs Are From Neptune ($15, and director of the San Francisco SPCA's dog-training academy. Owners have more time to stroll in the evening and to let their pets linger over exciting smells and sounds missed on the morning-rush walk. Evening walks also let him avoid midday overheating. He can make himself comfortable before bedtime, says David Reinecke, the founder of Los Angeles-based Dog Remedy behavioral training.
