Did You Know
Dogs should spend 30 minutes to 2 hours of daily activity. This of course, depends on age, health, and breed. We often think of exercise only as a health issue, but it has significant day-to-day effects on a dog’s behavior as well. Dogs — particularly puppies and young dogs — have a lot of energy, and if they don’t get the chance to burn it off then destructive behavior is often the result. No matter the size of the dog, every dog needs a physical and mental outlet to expend extra energy and maintain health and fitness.

The cost of not getting enough

Inactive dogs are often overweight dogs and that brings plenty of health risks. Dogs being overweight contribute to many health risks such as; diabetes, respiratory disease, and heart disease. Older dogs often have a hard enough time getting up without the added problem of lifting excess pounds. In addition, dogs can be like young children. If you don’t give them something constructive to do with their energy, they’ll find something to do on their own-and you may not like it! Some of the most common behavior problems seen in dogs that don’t get enough exercise and play include:
  • Destructive chewing, digging or scratching
  • Investigative behaviors, like garbage raiding
  • Hyperactivity, excitability and night-time activity
  • Unruliness, knocking over furniture and jumping up on people
  • Excessive predatory and social play, play biting, and rough play
  • Attention-seeking behaviors like barking and whining
