We used to walk a few miles daily but he is an old boy now with hips that are old as well and he cannot walk that far or that long. The last time he was on a long walk our son ended up carrying him 8 blocks back to the car because he just could not move any further. It is a good thing our son is very strong since our dog weighs 70 pounds.

Our hunting dog have chased bears over 20 miles.

We exercise them about 15 miles a day at least three days a week.

They run.......we ride in the truck or, on a guad.

We walk about 30-45mins in the winter, because its usually quite cold and dark when we get home from work. But in the spring, summer and fall, we walk for about 1-2 hours at a time daily. On nice weekends in the winter, we go to the lake bottom and walk for hours, exploring the old farming land.

There is a dog park about an hour walk away. We've walked there, played for an hour, and walked back on nice days.

We've walked hiking trails for around 2 hours before with our beagle mix.
We now only walk around 30-40mins at a time because our new hound dog has an old leg wound(it was "de-gloved" is the term the vets use) and he'll drag that paw if we walk for any longer then that. If the beagle is still being crazy I'll take her separately to the park and let her run.

I walk mine about 1 hour a day (about 2 1/2 miles) in the morning, but the longest walk I have been on with my dogs was a little over 5 miles and took about 2-2 1/2 hours.

When my GSP's are hunting we (all of us) walk about 6 hours a day. The dogs run 4x as long as we walk. We'll cover 10-15 miles on GPS tracking (human steps).

We have to carry at least 1 gal of water for each dog per day.

They get a break in the winter, then spring time we hit the the open ground and I let them run wide open to get them in shape for fall.



It's some pretty wide open country here. The dogs work.

It's a great time hunting with the dogs. They love it, I love it- it's a lot of fun. Here's a video when I was working with my male, Schnitzel. He was only 8 months old at that time.

He got pretty birdy and his tail started going a mile a minute, so I stopped my camera-phone and then we had this (sorry it's jerky but it's tough to film, train a dog and shoot, lol)-

There's a lot of ground out there in NE Montana. After a week of hunting my dogs will lose about 10% of their weight even while free feeding them. They really work all out when there are birds to be found.
