The Exercise Routine That's Perfect For Your Dog

Exercise is a huge part of owning any breed of dog. If you are not prepared for multiple walks a day, and to be out in nearly all weathers, then dog ownership may not be for you! That being said, the level of exercise each dog needs can depend largely on what breed they are. An average recommendation is that your dog should be walked at least once a day for a minimum of thirty minutes. However, some dogs need around two hours of exercise per day; sometimes in one block, other times broken up across the day. Therefore, it is difficult to find a 'one size fits all' rule for exercise your pet. Read on for more information about different kinds of dogs and the exercise they require.
