daily routine it not only provides

exercise but has many other benefits but

normal to have doubts about both the

amount and duration of walks especially

as each dog has individual needs which

will be a factor in a specific amount of

exercise they require that's why this

new animal wise video explains how to

adapt your dogs walking habits to the

different stages of their life but being

a puppy to being a senior dog

additionally we provide you some extra

tips to ensure this routine positively

our puppies can go out into the wider

world when they have completed their

first vaccination schedule before this

they need to be taken in a carrier so

they are not exposed to harmful

pathogens even this can begin the

process of familiarizing the dog with

the outside world since their first

walks coincide with toilet training

we recommend timing your walks for when

they just wake up after eating after

playing or when they seem nervous this

might be seen in sniffing excessively or

walking around in circles ideally at

this stage you should make short

frequent trips between three and five

times a day don't forget the importance

of using positive reinforcement giving

them small treats and other

encouragement so they will associate the

arts art world with fun and positivity

where they can do their business safely

remember this is a gradual process which

can take some time so be patient and

don't punish them

in the adult stage of life walks can

become less stimulating for this reason

we recommend you vary the daily route

and visit special dog parks

it's important on the first part of any

walk outside you let your dog do their

business without interrupting them we

should also avoid giving too many

commands or attempting to play tricks

they need exercise

first and foremost dog parks are also

great for exercise because they can be

led off their leash which should happen

for at least 5 minutes per day here is

when we can interact a little more with

games toys and training at the end of

the walk we can also do a little

relaxation exercise to ensure they are

not too excitable or anxious when they

get home petting and reassuring them for

a few minutes should be sufficient the

ideal on this stage is to offer between

two and four walks per day well spaced

between each other the average duration

should be between 20 and 60 minutes

depending on the breed activity level

and specific needs of the dog older dogs

are a special group while some will stay

in top shape even at 13 others begin to

show difficulty walking it's always best

to follow the advice of our veterinarian

this way we can know for our dog's

suffers from specific issues helping us

to better adapt their walks to their

needs at this stage we should try to

maintain the same routine we followed in

the adult stage however if we observe

problems when urinating or pain when

walking we may need to make shorter but

more frequent trips as in the puppy

stage don't tire them out and allow them

to urinate as they need
