  • I go out several times a day, we do a nice night time walk too. I love to be with my pets! They never care what I wear or judge me. I always let them choose which way we will go too.

  • We walk ours on a lead because we have to... Our neighbor put up a barbwire fence and our male Shepherd went through it running after a rabblt. We live in the country and used to let him run around the yard when we were out with him, but can't now because of the fence... He has 6 staples in his chest for another 10 days. Our other Shepherd doesn't know when to stop so we have to keep her on a lead. She's also 13 yrs old and doesn't stay out long...

  • We have to take him out because we live in a condo with not much yard (basically a patio). I enjoy it too. I'd say he goes out about 4 to 5 times a day.

  • No. We have a doggie do to a large fenced dog run (as big as some people's yard). We have an even larger fenced yard and a pool for swimming. When my large dog died from cancer I got a 9 pound poodle and 3 pound Chihuahua and between running around the house, the dog run, the yard, swimming, playing with each other, and running from my toddler grandson they get lots of exercise. They get to go on car rides and we visit one neighbor's cats and another neighbor's Chihuahuas. My granddog comes to visit. We have stairs to get up on the bed and couch. They have a very tough life!

  • My dog likes walks but would rather get her exercise with a good game of fetch. She loves to chase her ball! She'll wear herself out chasing that ball and be barely able to walk, but she'll continue to chase it. We don't go on walks everyday, but we do take them fairly often.

  • I personally take my dog outside multiple times a day to use the bathroom. We have a little path in front of the house we walk back and forth. I can't take her on proper walks until my husband gets home, so we just mosey around the house for a little while.

  • We have about 3/4 of an acre fenced in and they go out there several times/day to do their business and/or run/play. When it cools down, I will start walking them around the neighborhood (about a mile round trip) again.

  • No. We have a gigantic yard so I let them out throughout the day to let them run around and do their business. One of my dogs is 13 years old and she's too old and crabby to go out for walks. Plus she can't take this horrible heat that we've got going on in FL.
