How Often and For How Long Should I Walk My Dog

Consider your dog's breed and size. Higher energy breeds need more exercise.  

Breed & Size

Senior and less active dogs require shorter, slower paced walks. Check with your vet.

Age & Health   

High energy dogs need more walks per day and longer durations than low energy dogs.

Energy Level   

Most healthy adult dogs need 1-2 walks per day. Adjust based on energy level.

Walk Frequency  

Aim for 20-40 minutes per walk. High energy dogs can go for 60+ minutes.

Walk Duration

Your dog getting enough exercise will be calm, relaxed, and content after a walk.

Signs of Enough

A dog needing more will pace, become destructive, or remain hyperactive.
