Small dogs under pounds should exercise for 20 minutes at a time, according to Little.
He advised dog owners to contact their vet if walks get difficult.
Little advised larger dogs to walk for 30–60 minutes at a period, but athletic species like
Labrador retrievers and Australian shepherds can walk for an hour without difficulty.
Young pets walking can develop exercise-induced disorders such low blood sugar and dehydration.
He stated older canines can have similar concerns, especially if they have underlying abnormalities.
If your older or younger animal isn't used to walking, start with short walks and increase the time if no problems arise."
