We all know the importance of exercise for us and our dogs.  We need to keep our dogs moving and daily walks or exercise with your dogs is a necessity for long term health.  The question is not whether to exercise your dog but how much exercise a dog really needs.


The benefits of daily exercise are crucial for your dog’s mental and physical health.  And, of course, a tired, worked out dog is much more happy and relaxed that is less likely to cause havoc.


A dog’s daily exercise depends on many factors, including age, breed, physical health, injury, and environment.  As always, your vet can help recommend the amount of daily exercise your dog(s) needs.
