    Had walking problems in the beginning using a harness went to a trainer he recommended a slip lead (and till George got used to it some treats) he loves walking now. Usually 15 - 20 mins but he would walk forever now he loves it but as he's still a puppy we keep the walk short. He can be a little hyper after it though. As long as your dog has some playtime using their brain it seems that this is excercise enough for them in bad weather or excessively hot weather.

    We take Betty on a mile long walk first thing in the morning (about 25-30 minutes) and then again in the evening. She's quite a lean bulldog (everyone says she looks skinny when we're out and about, but the vet said she's at a healthy weight) and usually likes the exercise. Unless its raining, then she tries to drag me back to the house. We're quite lucky as her previous owner must have trained her well, she walks perfectly on a harness and is good off the lead as well.

    Im like you Betty. Everyday we walk at the dog park. I do 2 rounds. Plus my son something comes to the house with his 2 pitbulls like today and Nyala gives them their money's worth for a pup. She just doesn't stop and goes after them or rams into them for a good hour outside. Hope she keeps this energy up as I love to walk n ride my bike. Would be fantastic if she follows.

    We have 2 MALE BULLIES -One does not like to go outside before bedtime -even if we make him by dragging him outside he will not pee or poop. He doesn't make any mistakes and then goes outside right away in the morning. We have tried all of his favorite treats but when he doesn't want to go outside we must drag him - I hate doing it. Any ideas

    Again, he goes outside for rides, first thing in the morning and he enjoys it but not later in the day etc

    Iím laughing at the walk descriptions! Our last two dogs were mini schnauzers and one loved to walk while the other went just to be with her people. Our EB, Sherman, goes a block and is ready for a nap. It makes us laugh because he is so opposed to most activity!

    I started taking my pup when he was 3 mons for a walk around the block but just at night time bc texas weather in June-sept gets super super hot and humid so at night it kinda cools down so since then i been dping that now he is 7 mons and he loves to walk at night and run with my chihuahua see who wins which oc my chihuahua always wins him lol
    During the day when i get off work i will take him out for like 10 min n go back in and he will actually would go in whenver he feels is to hot and i would no force him to stay any longer .

    Chaos is 3 months and she HATES walks. Now if I say walk or grab her leash she hides and sulks. We have given up. She loves to play (rope of course) inside. Outside is for doing her business and that’s it. If I walk her, we are lucky to get past the driveway and that’s with her being half dragged and moping behind me. I don’t know why we bother with a leash. To run away she’d have to be willing to run and actually go somewhere not being carried or in a car. Lol. She’ll do the minimal she has to do to poop and then come in for a nap. Girl is ridiculous. I asked the vet who laughed and said “these guys are more the cuddling type than the walking type.” I say, as she’s snoring beside me after an exhausting 10 foot walk from the car. ��

    I take my 9 month old (Dozer) walking about 3/4 times a week during Texas winter for about a mile which takes 25 minutes. Would take him more but he drags his nails and Iím afraid he will walk them off to the quick if I take him anymore. At least I donít have to try and cut his nails. Our old dog would not even let us touch his nails or he would turn into the hulk

    -92823085_10158329809449726_8473617982747049984_o-jpgThis is our usual walk 2-5 times a week. Bullies, especially boys must walk at least 50% more since they don't walk in atraight line as I do The speed is actually much faster, but the boys stop every now and then to smell.

    I see that I replied to this question when Castor was 1.5, and then his schedule looked like this: "Four times per day; three walks of 30-40 minutes plus a short walk before we go to bed". Now he has turned 7, and we take him out for walks three times per day, each one 20-60 minutes depending on what he wants and the weather (and those two variables are often related). He's odd these days; some days he can walk for an hour without problem but some days it's like he's nailed to the ground and he won't move. We hope he's not in pain but will let a vet look at him when times are better.

    @cefe13, geez Nyala was a puppy lol..

    ———————-

    Well I don’t go to dog parks as I stopped that like 4yrs ago. Nyala walks a good 4-5km but Jake is the new comer of last July. He lived on a farm so no walks. He now does 1km. I’ve started to stretch him to 1.5km. Where I live I try to walk as much as I can but our weather is either too cold or too cold or tooooooo tooooo cold or damm, freezing your a*s off.... lolll we try to walk daily which so far so good.
