A new Canadian Forces book about the walk and its benefits for people with chronic health problems has been released in the United States.
The book is titled Walk Like a Dog and features the first full-length documentary on the subject, titled Walk like a Dog: Walking With PTSD.
The book was written by former Canadian Forces officer and National Veterans Affairs medical officer Dr. John Fenton and his wife, Sarah Fenton, who now lives in New York City.
In a phone interview from their home in Toronto, Fenton said the book is about “the human side of walking,” not about walking as a sport.
It is not a memoir, he said, but a book about how we live, what we walk for, and how we deal with chronic conditions.
He said it was a challenging and personal project, but he has no regrets about his work.
Fenton said he has a “lot of compassion for people who have to walk and who have a disability that prevents them from being able to walk.”
He said people often tell him they don’t feel as if they are walking in their everyday life because they are not walking at all.
“And I have to say, ‘You are.
It’s because you don’t know how to walk,'” he said.
The Fenton family lived in Toronto for years after the war ended, and he said they “never had to go out to a park to walk” because there was a designated walking space in the city.
“We walked everywhere,” Fenton told CBC News.
“We did our own grocery shopping, we did our grocery shopping at home.
And so it was easy for us to walk wherever we needed to.”
The book includes several anecdotes from the Fentons’ life, including their experience walking in the bush with their dogs and how they got their first dog, a rescue dog, from a Toronto animal shelter.
Founded in the 1980s, the Canadian Forces and the National Veterans Association were the first organizations in Canada to create walk-in facilities for service members returning from overseas.
In 2006, the first walk-throughs were launched, and Fenton helped to create a training centre for service personnel.
The project was later expanded to other Canadian forces.
“It is really about walking with PTSD and walking with chronic disease, which we don’t really talk about much,” he said of chronic disease.
“But it’s really important to understand the way we deal and the way that we react to those challenges.”
Fenton added that the book was “a really nice way for people to learn how to get out and do the thing that they want to do.”
“I think it’s important that we give them that encouragement and encouragement,” he added.
