I take my dog for a few walks a week right now, it winter and I really cant stand to walk for a hour in -20 weather lol.

Summer/fall/spring I walk him a few times a day, and go on a 3-4 hour hike 2 or 3 times a week.

I take mine to the park twice a day, plus they get the run of the garden all day.

At weekends, it depends as, if we sleep late, they do too! Lazy puppies!!! But yesterday we took them to the beach for instance.

Their ''awake and play time'' is mostly the afternoon. They are definitely not morning dogs!!

That must be nice...my dog is up at the crack of dawn. It's not so bad now in winter because the sun gets up later...but when we got her in August she was nosing me at 6am!

I take Cassie for a walk every day (unless it's *really* cold, last week it was -45 C) and she has 'play dates' on the weekends. Yesterday she came with me to my parents acreage, where we walked for a couple hours. I kept her on the leash, which turned out to be a good decision, as at one point we came across a porcupine sitting in the field eating.

Its very cold outside, and there's snow on the ground right now.

It makes it kind of difficult to go for a walk when the weather isn't so nice.

But there are times I brave it, if its not too bad out....if its really windy and you factor in the wind chill, I don't want to take her...for her sake and mine. All that wind blowing around isn't good for her eyes and ears.

When Spring comes she and I are going to do what we usually do...walking and rollerblading!!! We alternate. She and I get great exercise out of it and have a fun time doing it as well So I would say Spring - Fall is when she gets most of her outdoor exercise....

Right now I am training her to walk on a treadmill. Its only been about 3 days, and we do very short sessions, as she is still trying to get used to it. I hope in the weeks to come that she becomes well acclimated to it

In the morning and evening we go for a long, long walk around the farm. The rest of the time we spend playing outside in the yard. They have a large fenced in area to play in.

On weekends we spend a lot of the time outside. Like today, it snowed for the first time this winter and we have been in and out all day. One long walk this morning and just playing outside the rest. Its cold though, so we have to come in a warm up! Bruce, my pug, gets cold pretty quick but Katie, shepard mix, could stay out for hours if I let her.

we are still doing short walks (round about 20 minutes long) as we were told by the vet (not too sure how true it is after the diet advice she gave us) not too make her walk for too long in one go as it may damage her joints as she is still growing I don't want to start her off in life with damaged joints that I may have caused.
she goes out for a walk every day and she also has run of the garden during the day.

not really cold here by comparison to others but raining daily now for a week and expected to rain 4 more days at least. Ming is starting to like it because he likes the exercise of course and because when we get home momkat gives him a good drying off which he lies down and relaxes to.

I try to walk him daily. we're late today and he's getting antsy but I overdid yesterday and haven't been able to do much. still - as soon as I wake up a little more from my nap we're going. he can't do more than 20-25 mins. He's a big guy and he gets pretty tired with that amount. Sure loves it though.
