It depends on the time of year, during the summer when we're outdoors most of the time, Hank is too, running around on the several areas we have enclosed with an invisible fence. In the winter, when we spend more time indoors, so does he.

We don't usually take "walks" our road is narrow and hilly with too many fast cars.

2 miles a day

Rupert gets out for a mile walk in the morning and has a good run around with his friends, and usually in the afternoon/tea time

I walked Bailey 2 miles every morning until he was 11, then it was 1 mile. Sometimes I walked him after work. On mornings when I didnt feel like walking I would look at him and think "you know, Bailey shouldn't go without just because I'M the one who is lazy. I walked him on those days too.
I miss you Bay!

3.5 hours a day, We either get up extremely early and beat the heat- walking, or swimming, and if we cant go out then there on the treadmill.

Probably around two hours per day for Tess, playing fetch, walk and playing with Liza. Liza about an hour and a half real exercise.

1.5-2.5 hours a day for Joey.. Walks in the early morning, late night, sometimes on in the middle of the day but with the recent heat... that hasn't been happening. We play fetch every day for about half hour multiple times a day, and various days we'll go swimming for 1.5 hours then a walk and ball in the day.

My day's off it's more fun and we do more but the day's I work I make sure he still gets his exercise. The heat sucks because he's looking at me all sad, not understanding why we're being more lazy!

Edit: Also Joey goes to daycare from 8-5 once a week... that usually tire's him out for a whole day after lol.

Ruby is lucky because my husband and I are teachers and so the whole family is home in the summer months. She gets a three mile on leash walk most mornings and goes for another shorter off leash walk in the evenings where she can swim in the lake after the beach closes. The rest of the day she hangs out with us at home where we have a large yard for her to play. Once school begins again she gets a shorter walk most days but we try to make up for it on the weekends.

Bonnie is 16 months old, so now a young adult, and I said 2 hours daily, depending on the weather. We have no dog parks and she is mostly off lead, We take her out about 3 times a day. The rest of the time she is fine in the garden or house without being crated. She also goes out visiting and I take her with me wherever possible.

On an average day, about 15-20 minutes of ball throwing. but once or twice a week he goes to the American River for about an hours worth of ball fetching in the river.
He gets a really good swimming workout then. He's lost about 15 pounds and is looking really good right now!
