Ideal Walking Frequency For Your Dog

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.

2+ Times  

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. 

Heat Safety  

Stick to a regular daily walk schedule instead of long 1x/week walks.

Consistency Matters
