How long should the owner walk the dog every day?

 Walking the dog as a dog owner is our daily work, and walking the dog every day is essential. There is a saying that "a tired dog is an obedient dog". Yes, it is! The dog’s daily walking helps consume its excess energy, helps digestion, and reduces the urge to demolish the house. And walking the dog can also enhance the relationship between the dog and the owner, and make you and the dog have a better understanding. 


As a dog owner, do you know how long it takes to walk a dog a day? The length of the dog's activity time is closely related to the dog's breed. Poodle, it takes an hour to feel tired. The Great Dane is tall and strong but doesn't like sports. 

Dog walking time for sporty dogs: 60-120 minutes per day

These dogs are very energetic and physically strong. When they leave home, they will run in various ways. If they are not properly trained, they will walk their owners every day. Most of these types of dogs are working dogs, hunting dogs, and shepherd dogs that require a lot of exercises. 

1) Hounds: Golden Retriever, Labrador, Cocker Spaniel, etc.

They are loyal partners of hunters. They are active and alert and need one to two hours of exercise every day.

2) Working dogs: Husky, Samoyed, Doberman, Rottweiler, Standard Schnauzer, Giant Schnauzer and more!

Working dogs have excellent endurance, and sled dogs are typical representatives. Being able to take people to run in the ice and snow, I don't know what tiredness is at all.

3) Sheepdogs: Border Shepherd, Fadou, Corgi, German Shepherd, various shepherds and various bulldogs, etc.

If you don’t consume their energy, the dog will toss the owner or the house. 

Walking time for dogs that generally like to move: 60-90 minutes per day

Terriers: Small Schnauzers, Jack Russell Terriers, Lily of the Valley Terriers, West Highland White Terriers, Yorkshire Terriers, and terriers are also very popular. 

Although they are not large in size, they do not exercise too much. Fortunately, the size is not big and the dog owner can control it completely, otherwise, the dog owner will be exhausted. 

Walking time for dogs that don't like exercise: 30-60 minutes a day

1) Short-nosed dogs: pugs, British dogs, Shih Tzu dogs, Pekingese dogs, Fa fighting dogs, Boston Terriers, King Charles Beagles

The most important point must be remembered! Because the nasal cavity is relatively short, it is not easy to dissipate heat, especially when the weather is hot, limit the amount of exercise, otherwise, it is easy to heatstroke. Many short-nosed dogs can't swim, don't throw them into the water. Walk for half an hour every day in the summer night, otherwise, the dog will be very prone to heatstroke.

2) Toy dogs: Bichon, Chihuahua, Pomeranian, Miniature Doberman, Maltese, etc.

These little guys are petite and cute, and the amount of exercise can be maintained for half an hour to an hour every day. Too much will make the dog feel tired.

Dog owners must be aware that walking the dog is more than just exercise. Walking a dog is not the same as jogging. We jogging is mainly exercise, while walking a dog allows dogs to receive a full range of information from their senses, allowing dogs to use their eyes, ears, nose and four legs to perform a full range of sports. They use smell to smell Smell the world and exchange information with other dogs.
