my 9 month old working line does just fine without exercise on certain days. in the summer i exercise him every day. sometimes i'm out with friends all day and walk him at midnight. in the winter i can go a couple of days without exercise and he's fine. iit's not really about exercise but about keeping your dog's mind stimulated. there are better ways to play with your dog then to walk/run it in severe weather.
I was over here thinking I would make a terrible owner if I didn't walk my dog every single day. Im sire that would be great for the dog, but sometimes its just impossible. Of course I know better than to let it go on for more than a couple days.
