Do big dogs and little dogs need different amounts of exercise?

Size & Miles Count

Some larger active breeds of dogs, like Labrador Retrievers, may need up to eight miles of walking a day. Start a regular routine of exercising your dog to keep him healthy and fit. You can vary the routine by running, walking, and going for hikes. It's great exercise for the both of you. Smaller dogs, like Chihuahuas will do fine with a casual walk around the block.
