How Much Exercise Do Dogs Need?

August 31, 2020

Every dog needs at least an hour of exercise a day. It is essential to Fido's overall health and fitness. Without it, he might get sick or even develop behavioral problems. 


FIRST THINGS FIRST: ASK YOUR VET

How do you know when your dog needs exercise? Well, when your pupper starts getting fidgety, it is one sure sign that it needs exercise. You'll do it a good favor if you give it a quick game or two.


Dogs are naturally playful. They love to run around and explore. It is also their way of getting in shape. Getting confined may cause them stress. It is healthy for them to get a few minutes of playtime each day.


But how much exercise do they need? First of all, you need to check with your vet to determine your pet's health. The doctor may recommend an exercise routine to fit your pup.


SOME PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS

It all depends on your dog's age, size, and breed. In general, dogs need an hour of exercise every day. Make sure to give them the right workout routine. Some physical activities may not be best for all breeds.


Keep in mind the following suggestions when deciding on the best exercise for your puppy:

  • Puppers are like little children learning how to walk. Remember not to put too much pressure on them.
  • Watch out for those toe beans. Don't let little Lucy run around on concrete all the time. It could hurt her tender toes.
  • Exercise helps improve your dog's mental health. Give Fido activities that keep his senses engaged.
  • Some dog breeds have limitations on certain types of exercise activities. Do a little research about them.
  • Keep exercise sessions for pugs and other flat-nosed breeds short. They get breathing problems with long exercises.
  • Brain games are great for toy and miniature poodles to keep them from boredom. They are quite active and intelligent.
  • Dogs have personalities. Some dogs may not even like doing exercise at all. Make it a habit to bond with your pup.


There you go. Regular exercise is not only necessary for your dog's health. It also gives you the chance to bond with your pet. How about that? Now, you should know what you need to do when little Fido gets all the zoomies seeing you around. Perhaps he only wants to play. It wouldn't hurt to spare a quick thirty minutes of your time for that little puppy. Go ahead and show some puppy love!
