How often do you walk your dog?

I used to give my dog 3 walks a day. After moving I only give him a walk 2xs a week. Just wondering what’s normal because I feel like I am neglecting him now, although I know he was spoiled before.
Have a black lab

I have a Border Collie he is very energetic! I give him a walk about 2-3 times a week so I’d say it’s normal. I also play Frisbee or fetch in our back yard a lot to so if you don’t feel like giving him/her a walk every day and he/she is hyper than try playing Frisbee or fetch it always works with my dog.
Hope that I helped?!
GOOD LUCK!!!!

  3. I walk my jesse once a day, but I take her out in the backyard a lot as well. It really depends on the dog though. An athletic dog like a collie needs a lot of exercise, but if you have a bichon, running around your home should be enough exercise.

  4. at least once a day, at least that’s what i try for, but i know sometimes something comes up and i can’t always walk him every day.

  5. It really depends on how active your dog is. I have an American Staffordshire Bull Terrier and I have to walk her only once a day. She is pretty lazy though. If your dog is very active, twice a day should be ok. Also, let the dog out to run in the yard and just lounge in the sun atleast 30-45 minutes a day.
    The whole spoiled dog thing, I recommend you watch alot of Dog Whisperer and learn what that actually does to a good dog. I used to spoil my girl alot but realize now that that was a bad idea. Good Luck!

  6. Depends on the weather. Usually I walk the dogs twice a day, once before work (around the block) and again in the evening for about 2-3 miles. If it is raining or extrememely hot, we just take short walks early and later after sunset to avoid the heat. (Same for snow days.)

  8. 4 times a day.

    3 times a day we just go around the block so she can do her business. And, once a day I take her to the park where she runs and plays with other dogs off her leash for two hours. This is 7 days a week, weather permitting.

  9. I used to walk mine all the time and now I only get to like 2 or 3 times a week. I do let them loose and let them run around outside and play with them every day though. I know how you feel. This is not neglecting. But I think my dogs are wondering why they don’t get to go on walks as much. When they see the leash they get sooooo excited!

  10. I’ve got a black lab and a siberian husky/chow mix. I walk them every morning before 9 am. And every late afternoon between 6 pm and 7 pm… I walk for about 20-30 mins each time. So about 40 -60 mins a day…. =)
