How often do you walk your pooch?

How often do you walk your pooch?

I try to walk, Lola as often as I can. Which, is about once or twice a day. But, sometimes she goes without a walk, a week, untill the weekend.

Typically, during spring/summer/fall I take both the pups when I get home from work for a walk to the park (a few blocks away), let them play off leash for about 20 mins, and then we do another 20 mins circling the blocks on the way home.

In the winter.... not so much. Chicago is not fun in the winter! LOL. I will take Jessie to the park occasionally after a huge snowfall and get my car all wet in the process, but I dont care. She absolutely LOVES leaping and running in the snow, and I enjoy watching her enjoy herself!!!

Shells, Jessie, Sugar Booger,
Abby, Molly, Oreo & Puff

I try to tkae Tucker out twice a day, for about 30-45 minutes. It gives both of us some exercise, and a chance to work on his training commands while he has to deal with some distractions.

I walk Noodle twice a day, once in the morning, and once in the afternoon.

other then those standard walks..he's always on leash to go potty..so can you count the million times I have to walk him around my house as well?

We go on walks off of our property at least once a day, sometimes twice. We go for walks on our property twice a day during the week, 4-5 times on weekends.The reason I bring up the walks ON our property is that I make sure they're good and limber before playing ball or running hard. I've always believed that walking with them before rough play does the same for them as stretches and warm-ups does for humans. I think it prevents injuries.
Knocking on wood here, but I've never had one with a torn ACL or any other leg injury.

Two miles after lunch.
Two miles once home from work.

...and on weekends it is about 6 miles a day.

My dogs do chores with me and help bring the horses in. Usually about 2 hours a day. I guess I never really thought about how many miles that is. I will see about a padomiter.
