Regardless of the weather situation (40 degree thunderstorm in January??) your pup still needs physical activity. Come January, we like to remind pet owners that making sure your dog gets enough exercise will be good for him and you. A dog with too much pent up energy can wreak havoc in the house, keep in mind that a tired dog is a good dog! Check out a past post by Dr. Jess on “making tracks for your dog in the snow”. Keep in mind that the amount of exercise your dog needs depends on breed, age, size and health. Dogs of a working breed will require more stimulation. Talk to your vet to get a general idea of how much activity your pet needs.
