The need for physical activity varies greatly among breeds, and also among individual dogs. A toy terrier may get enough exercise from bouncing around an apartment, but a hunting hound needs a great dial of activity. Try to provide regular exercise daily. If you plan long periods of strenuous work, give the dog rest stops for food and water several times during the day. Outdoor dogs get much more exercise than indoor pets, since their social habits keep them patrolling and defending their territories constantly. To stimulate indoor dogs to be more playful, provide toys. Two dogs will practically exercise themselves playing together.
