    My Winter schedule differs from my Summer one. In Winter the dogs come horseriding with me about once a week, the ride is about an hour, plus an hour either side of the ride, walking around, getting ready, packing up etc.
    I have been working till dark the last 3 weeks, so we have been going for 20 minute bike ride runs in the evening.
    On the day of the weekend I don't ride they go for a 1 and a half hour walk.
    So in winter its about 8 hours a week.
    In Summer its double that

    The most exercise the little puppy gets is a walk (2 minutes) down to the local park 1-2 times a week where he gets to roam as he pleases (on leash) and swim in the creek.

    At home, he's very keen on racing me (although he's cunning little cheater at that) and an avid fetcher (indoors and out).

    Two forty minutes a day, one in the morning and one at night. Two twenty minute play/training seesions every day. That is during the week and on the weekends double that. Since getting a dog I have become quiet fit!!!

    Long walks, swimming, trotting allong beside the bike.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    Funny story - Once when I was walking my puppy on-leash on the off-leash dog beach a man with 2 ridgebacks came along. He asked why my puppy was on lead and I said her re-call wasn't 100%. He said "what a shame because my dogs would love to sniff her bum and roll in the sand with her."

    I take Troopa for walks around our neighbourhood.
    Play sessions during the day consist of me chasing after him with his footy, game of tug to get it off him, I throw it, he retrieves it and the chase starts again.

    I don't get him out for walks as often as I'd like due to my husbands shift work and having 2 young kids at home but on days when we can't get out for a walk I always make sure we get in extra play time.

    My 2 get a walk around the block most days.. The block is quite large as we live on acerage..

    Apart from that, they are pretty well self exercising as they spend a good part of the day chasing each other around the backyard.. ( The one in the lead usually has a random item in their mouth )
