A dog should be played with often. They need a lot of exercise, especially as a puppy. Daily walks are a good way to get exercise, so is letting them have free reign of a large fenced-in backyard if at all possible. Having toys to let the dog play with when one is not home is a good way to keep them occupied in a large yard when someone can’t play with them.
It is recommended that the dog should receive between half an hour and two hours of exercise. This depends on the breed of dog. Dogs that typically go into hunting or helping round up animals need more exercise than lap dogs. It’s the same as it would be with humans: an athletic human needs more exercise than a non-athletic human to stay in shape.
