How often should I walk or jog with my dog each week?
From the Editors of The Dog Daily
A very general guideline is that healthy, active dogs should receive about half an hour of aerobic exercise at least three to four times a week. That exercise could be a brisk walk, swimming, jogging, fetch or other activity that will bring up your dog's heart rate. If you can do these activities with your dog, you will benefit too.
Beyond that basic recommendation, many factors affect how often and for how long you should walk or otherwise exercise your dog. One is whether your dog is indoors-only or if it has some access to a midsized to large yard throughout the day. Another consideration is dog breed and size. Long-legged dogs generally need to walk longer distances than short-legged ones, which must move faster for each of your own steps.
Certain breeds, like huskies and terriers, were bred for stamina. These dogs can usually run and play for long periods of time. It's a myth, however, that greyhounds make good jogging partners. They can reach high running speeds but only over short distances.
