Well? I admit to not having walked Skittles in a few days, because of the ice, snow, and below 15 degrees weather. If it's warmer, I would walk her for about 20 minutes a day, not sure if that's enough though.
I'll take Kiba out and usually be outside for 10 minutes or so (depending on the weather). Since it's like -10 to 0 degrees it's a quick run outside. But since she is 6 months old now we're going to start going on long walks when the weather and roads get good.
I guess that depends on what kind of dog she is. I think its good enough for a small dog, but maybe a larger, active breed needs more. If the dog is hyper in the house and chewing on things she shouldn't, then a longer walk or an additional one each day might be necessary.
Generally I walk them for about 20 minutes...but lately with the weather, they haven't been walked at all. We have a farily big yard, so they still get their exercise..but they don't like staying out in the cold long...maybe that explains all my rugs being jumbled up in the corner.
We live in the country so I can take Mali for a one-hour walk off-leash in the woods per day, except on the weekends when the hunters are out and its too dangerous. What I want to know is if it's harmful for her feet to walk on the snow or when its freezing. It's just started snowing, and I don't want to hurt her. She's a 3-year old golden retriever, by the way.

Wow. I wouldn't even go out if it was negative degrees. 0_0 It was three degrees this morning though, and I had to go to school. >_< I'm really afraid of something happening to Skittles' feet too, since the ground is all frozen.
Belle and Buffy, which are maltese, don't care to go for walks. They would rather be carried. I do walk around my swimming pool for excerise and they will walk or run a little and we play in the backyard which is fenced.
