I have a Rat Terrier and quite frankily, she does not get walked very much. She is not overweight by any means. I just feel like she has turned into a lap dog or house dog. She is a breed typically very active. When I do walk her, she walks me (obviously because she is not used to it). She does get exercise though in our large fenced-in backyard.
I am just curious if there are many people out there who don’t really walk their dogs.
I don’t necessarily walk them. We go to the dog park several times a week and walk the other days. They get some sort of out-of-the-house exercise probably 5-6 days a week, 1-3 hours each of those days depending on my schedule. I didn’t walk them today because the weather was AWFUL.
I don’t really have a choice though, with a border collie.
