Puppies should go for short, positive walks every 2-3 hours to stimulate growth and socialization.
4-5 Times Daily
Adult dogs typically need 30-60 minutes of walking 1-2 times per day.
1-2 Times Daily
Senior or low energy dogs do well with shorter, slower paced walks 1-2 times daily.
1-2 Short Walks
Highenergy breeds often require over 60 minutes of vigorous exercise 1-2 times per day.
Active off-leash play can supplement leashed walks to meet exercise needs.
In Addition to Play
Walk early or late in summer and adjust frequency if your dog struggles in heat.
Stick to a regular daily walk schedule instead of long 1x/week walks.
