Every dog needs at least basic training, and daily exercise. Once herders, guard and hunting dogs, now our dog friends have new work; unfortunately it’s usually collecting their own doggie welfare checks. Most dog breeds need a minimum of 45 minutes of exercise every day and the best kind is forward motion exercise.
People believe that dogs need a big yard so they can get plenty of exercise. Let’s face it; most people don’t get enough exercise either. Exercise channels the activity of both mind and body. Dogs that get regular exercise with their people tend to leave the unwanted behavior like chewing, nuisance barking, separation anxiety, and aggressive tendencies behind.
You do not need to take up marathon running in order to adequately exercise your dog. Make sure your dog is psychically healthy and then acclimate. Walking is great, and if running is in your capabilities your dog will love it even more.
