Why does a dog need exercise?

Active Dogs are Happy Dogs

Exercise serves to keep your dog physically fit and mentally well. Give your pooch playtime with you in the backyard or a walk in the neighborhood for exercise. She'll get improved muscle tone, better flexibility, work the cardiovascular system, and release endorphins to contribute to a happy state.

Different breeds of dogs need different amounts of exercise. Your average Toy Poodle may just need a brisk walk around a few blocks while a Boxer would need a much more vigorous routine.
