Exercise, training & work...where do you fall?

Just curious with all of the different threads on daily exercise & training. I know I won't cover all the options, so if you are "other", please specify.

You forgot the poll. Do you mean our exercising or the dogs exercising? Please clarify your question.

I answered the first one. I am single, I work full-time and I work on something with Madix for at least an hour every day. I don't have a yard, I live in an apartment so I either take him to the park and we play fetch, work on fast downs/sits, play with the flirt pole and work on obedience. In the house I work on one-jump training, perch work, basic positioning and commands and new tricks. Plus, I have three training days a week - right now we have CGC class (again lol) on Mondays, Thursdays we have Flyball and Sundays are Schutzhund (and we go to open agility when we can with the local club). In March we will be having Rally on Mondays, Flyball Thursdays and Schutzhund Sundays. In May, Agility on one night (not sure which yet) and then Flyball and Schutzhund.

I am single.

I am a graduate student.

I work part time.

Stark participates in agility 1 hour per week.

Stark participates in schutzhund (on hiatus at the moment) 1-2 days per week; anywhere from 2 hours to 3 hours (time split up over the course of the day).

We have a formal nightly training group that meets at the local park or around the city which is anywhere from 1/2 hour to an hour (sometimes more with play in between or after).

We work on a lot of things in our apartment such as perch work, agility jumps/weaves, various commands and tricks.

We also work on other things on our nightly walk/play time at the local park or school yard (no yard, as I live in an apartment).

We also try to track 2-4 times per week (yes, even in the winter!).

We have just started working on rally patterns recently for an upcoming trial so that is done throughout the day for 5-10 minutes each session.

**Stark has more of a life than I do.**

I'm a grad student, working with an assistantship at my school.

We go to an intermediate puppy class for an hour a week, and will probably move to agility or something once this one is finished.

We walk every day, 30-90 minutes, play in the dog park or the park across the street.

We spend time doing some obedience and tricks in the house, and a good game of tug/fetch.

I try to hit the dog park 3-5 times a week, and he gets to go to an all day day-care about once a week. Day care is a life saver during finals.

At worst - he gets 30 mins of outside play time, and about 30 mins inside time. (More than a day or two of this and I have a wound-up crazy dog! Which is why I discovered daycare for finals weeks.)
At best - we spend a full day doing things.

Single (live alone and my family aren't dog people).

Work full time.

Grad school part time (one night a week - I did more one semester and decided I wasn't home with the dogs enough).

Dogs get a 45-60 min walk most days, more on weekends. Dog walker comes on days I have class or something after work. 30 min of training at home daily. Play time in the yard with each other (and me). Goal is class once a week for each dog (Kaiser starts Wed, need to wait on next set of classes for Raven). Socialization on weekends (either rescue events or trips out).

I marked other: In a relationship but we are both home 24/7.

Molly gets an hour to an hour and a half walk every morning, fetch for about half an hour in the yard, an hour to an hour and a half at the park every afternoon (just not in the last few weeks as she is recovering from surgery).

We start agility next week - an hour class a week.

I'm of the belief that 'exercising' consists more than walking (jogging / running) with your dog. Even if we have adverse weather conditions, I make sure that I do something each day to stimulate my dogs, mentally and physically - even if it's just lightly tossing a ball in the house, or playing different house games with them.

Married. Hubby works full-time, I work part-time and go to school. Rocky gets less than 1hr of non-yard exercise per day, but check back with me when Kopper is 7 months old.
