How Much Exercise Does Your Dog Need?

Saturday, March 2, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

The answer to this question depends on the dog breed. Dogs that are bred for working such as Retrievers and Huskies require lots of exercise.  Walk these dog for at least 30 minutes each day. In addition to their normal daily walks, smaller dogs such as lap dogs or toy dogs only require an occasional walk for exercise. Two or three times a week in usually sufficient. They can also run around the house which also gives them lots of exercise.

The best way to determine how much exercise your dog needs is to look at his body and behavior. If he is fit and not overweight and behaves well in the house, then he’s probably getting enough exercise.  If after you walk your dog, you notice that he is getting into everything in the house and just not behaving well, try playing with him with is dog toys in the house. Play fetch or hide and seek. If he’s a swimmer and you have a pool, take a swim with him.
