• Centrally obese men walking their dogs demonstrate reduced subscapular and triceps skinfolds, as a result of carrying the dog leash.
• Reduced hips perimeter is associated with dog walking in both sexes.
• Body composition on selected body parts is ameliorated by dog walking, even among centrally obese individuals.
A total of 83 centrally obese adults, 46 of which were dog-owners, responsible for walking their dogs on a daily basis, and 37 without dogs, participated in the study.
