Lightbulb Walking how many time a day

i used to walk my dogs 6 days a week that was in the summer, now that i have school its a little harder. i noticed that when i was walking them i wouldnt have this peeing problem with the male then i stopped walking and the peeing started. do you belive that just becuase im not walking him he is peeing ? for exercise i can walk them once a day is that ok ? becuase they go bathroom in their yard and do territory marks outside.

It's hard to tell from your description of the behavior. I walk mine twice a day, and they get 9 turnouts a day, besides.

I am gone from 7:30 in the morning until 4:30 in the afternoon.
He goes out once in the morning, then once more when I come home.
Then we go on an hour walk, he'll pee a few times (at the max 3 or 4 times, but mostly just marking) at the park, I don't let him pee while we're walking. I would hate for someone to allow their dog to pee on my front lawn because then every other dog that goes past that spot will pee on it.
We go home around 6 pm and then he doesn't go outside again until around 10pm for a pee.
He can hold it for longer, i've been stuck in traffic and haven't gotten home at my usual time, it was something like 7:30 so thats 12 hours, and he was fine...and he just casually walked outside to pee.

How old are your dogs?

We`re going three times a day for round 30min for a walk.

Then we start our training, Clara gets ound 30-45min and Marvin gets 10-15 minutes.

Weather like it matters.

When it is raining or realy cold Clara gets a Cape, Marvin gets one just ist raining very hard.

On Weekend we`re having one walk with more than 1-2 hours.

Twice a week Clara have to go with me an the horses. A normal ride needs 2 1/2 hours.

Germans are sometimes a little bit crazy

Hi mkmama3....how old are your dogs? Alot has to do with their ages..all the dogs I have owned have had full control of their bladders around age 2. If ever we go out on the weekends or have something to do that will take a long time (12 hours) I wouldn't worry about mine having an accident...but I would feel awful having too leave him that long by himself...even though I know he is sound asleep...guarding the couch!!!

Bella and Hamish get taken out for 3 walks a day usually - from half to and hour each time. About half this time is off the lead so they can run around and have fun. They are both small dogs 15 weeks and 7 months. I used to take the older one for good 2 hour walk as well at the weekend but Hamish can't keep up yet !

Plus they play loads ! so plenty of excercise and can go in the garden when they want. Bella usually also does a few hundred laps of the bedroom !

I am also lucky that I am usually with them all day every day as I work from home. The longest they will get left is 6 hours once a week or fortnight.

Me too and then people ask how can they toilet train them. Dogs need company and i certainly could'nt go without using the toilet for 12 hrs.

I agree Lassie -

Jake goes out once a day now for a walk - we go to the beach or beside the river spey (wow its really fast flowing and has burst its banks) but we walk for 2/3 hours.

He also has the freedom of the garden any time.

He's very anally retentive and he does his toilet 3 times a day - after each meal - I could set my clock by him. He hates his routine changed too - but he has coped with the move brilliantly.

12 hours is a really long time
