If people cannot find an hour and a half per day to walk their dogs then i say dont get a dog .

Jason ..... Letting your dog out in the yard is not enough . They do not get any intellectual stimulation from running around . It is unstructured . It is a free for all . Letting your dog out in the yard as opposed to structured walking is about the same as subsisting on candy in lieu of meats and vegetables . Also , walking your dog fulfills a primal need for migration . In nature dogs migrate all day with the pack . Now we cannot dublicate this all day migration but we can simulate the most important aspects of it . People need to stop fulfilling their own needs and their own laziness and think about what their dogs best interests . And trust me , throwing him out in the back yard and flipping him a treat now and then does nothing for your dog . It just doesnt .

Not one mention of regular dog walks ? Are you serious ? The absolute kindest most productive and intellectually stimulating thing you can do for your dog is walk him . You want to keep your dog active , healthy , and trim ? You walk him twice a day for minimum 45 minutes each time . You stimulate him intellectually on the walk by making him walk beside you . You challenge him intellectually by asking him to be calm on the walk . Even when you walk by cats . Even when you walk by a fence with an out of control blood thirsty dog behind it . Everything that you want for your dogs physical and mental health is available if you walk your dog . I cannot believe this article did not even mentioned dog walking . You have ZERO legitimacy with me .
