On an average day now that it's cold here, we go for one or two 45 min walks, sometimes a bike ride if I don't have a lot of time to walk. We also try to go to the dog park a few times a week so he can run with the other dogs. In the summer we would play outside all day, swimming, playing frisbee, etc.

Ky gets a minimum of 3 hrs a day, this involves walking and swimming. Bentley can't really keep up with her schedule yet but Ky's exercise is mandatory. If she gets less than 3 hours her back seizes on her and causes a lot of pain. Her back has been bad for 2 days now so we have to stop all exercise until she gets over the hump but then we'll be right back at it.
In the winter we use our friends indoor pool for swimming. Not sure if Bentley will be doing that because I haven't asked the vet yet about puppies & chlorine.

Ours are golden oldies now, so their walks are shorter than they used to be.

Penny is at least 12 is probably 13+ (she's a rescue golden, so not totally sure)

Barney has just turned 12 in September of this year 2012.

They get a 15 minute walk to stretch their legs with my Hubby early before he goes to work, then they get their breakfast and have a sleep.

They get a late morning walk with me for between 45-65 minutes sometimes more, sometimes less, depends on them, they don't walk very fast though.

Barney gets another walk of around 15/20 minutes late evening (Penny usually doesn't want to go, sometimes she does)

They have free and total access of our house and the garden the rest of the time. We often play short amounts of toy throwing with Barney (Penny won't) He never brings the toys back tough, just chases them.

That's old age for you They had longer when they were kids
