How often will my dog be exercised?
We tailor each schedule to the individual dog. However In general, each dog has two long walks per day and frequent outings to the park or city center.
Older dogs or breed specific dogs may not need as much exercise, where as younger dogs or puppies need frequent outings. We will assess this based on your dogs specific requirements.
