Q Patricia asks:

How many times should a small dog go out for a walk?

Q Our vet says: This will obviously depend upon the type and age of the dog, the amount of other stimulation and games offered through the day, and of course the length and interest of the walks offered. Dogs are just like us and like to have a varied and interesting life so take your dog out and about as much as you can (so long as your dog seems happy and there are no health problems such as arthritis). I would say that two walks per day would be the absolute minimum for a healthy small breed dog, but the length of the walks should be tailored to your dog's needs- so if your dog is still jumping up and down and eager for another walk as soon as you get home you will need to go for longer walks or perhaps provide some fun games such as fetching a toy during the exercise period. Access to a garden and interactive play with another dog or person can also be stimulating for dogs and could take the place of some walking.
