How much in a week?

How far do you walk your dogs in a week (approximately, of course)? We've started doing about 15, around 5 miles every other day....This isn't for bragging, just for comparison =3

I'm a horrible owner. I don't walk my dog... hence why his walking skills kinda suck without treats. Instead we walk trails, run nutty in big open fields, play frisbee and go to the dog park. I should put one of those pedi-meters or whatever they're called, on him. He probably goes miles and miles!

I've recently switched to jogging instead of walking-1 mile a day (so 7 miles a week). I'd like to build up to three miles a day, but I'm doing it gradually.

It depends on many things including the weather, how tired I am, how much time I have, etc... Most of our walks are between 2 miles to 3 1/2 miles long (sometimes more but not as often). Sometimes we walk every day, sometimes only 2-3 times a week. So it varies.
That's not including other activities like rollerblading/biking, hikes, or trips to the dog park or beach. Those don't usually happen very much in the winter though.

Couple of miles in the morning at tracking, then 5-6 miles per afternoon, mostly off leash, so she walks maybe 7-8 miles. She's 15 months old.

Niko runs about 25 to 30 miles a week in the winter, 35 to 40 miles in the summer. And he walks anywhere from 5 to 7 miles per week.

I need the exercise more than Maggie does, she's my kick in the butt to get out and exercise every day. Plus we train a little when we walk, so it's two birds one stone.
