WHAT EXERCISE IS RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR DOG?
Like humans, each and every dog is unique. They all have different personalities and quirks, likes and dislikes.
There are so many breeds of dogs all shapes and sizes and genetically and physically built for a number of different jobs, so what's suited to one dog, isn't necessarily suited to another.
Some breeds require lots of exercise to keep them fit and healthy, whereas others may only need small amounts of exercise otherwise it will have a detrimental effect on their joints and physical health.
This is why it is so important to research dog breeds before buying a dog, to ensure it is suitable for your lifestyle.
