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'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.
Hard to totally find a category to vot in since it varies.
Both work full time.
"Work outs" vary. Sometimes we're only going to fit some fun ball playing in and house work (i.e. heeling patterns, searching for toys). Other days it's an agility class. Other days a 4 miles walk and SAR practice. Other days an obedience class. Other days an 8 mile hike.
So AVERAGE I'm sure it's more than an hour...but no, I'm not actually working here EVERY SINGLE day for more than an hour.
The weather has severely impacted our outdoor time. I was hanging in until it was below 10 a few days in a row. Off leash romps are held to about 30 minutes right now because that's about the amount of time it takes for me to stop feeling my toes.
Were you thinking that if you were partnered, that would automatically mean 2 people available to work with the dog? I have a partner, but all doggy responsibilities are mine. Hubby will go with us on a hike or walk sometimes, but exercise, feeding, potty time, clean up --- all mine per our agreement. Hubs does the 4 elderly cats.
I am married. We both don't really work lol and I am a full time student (grad)
I use our treadmill to walk the dogs on weeks I am overloaded with school work.(I guess I should have checked "other" for the treadmill walks)
I usually rotate them out and try each day to take one dog to the park. On the warm weekends we are at the lake or hiking for hours with the 2 GSD only. Cold days we go to the park across the creek and play ball or jog.
I put other. I am self-employed. The amount of exercise the dogs get depends on the day and the time of year. Sometimes less than an hour and sometimes up to 3-4 hours in a day. Training is 5-7 days per week, even if just a little bit like having to do sit/down/stand for a treat. Other days we do all three phases (tracking, obedience and protection).
I started and run two companies, am in grad school, am studying for my OUPV license, and work full time for one of my two companies, and train maybe 30 mins or so during the week, 3 hours or so on Thursday nights, and 3 hours or so on Saturdays or Sundays
I was working full time M-F and PT on the weekends (still9hrs a day) until earlier this month. My evenings were all about Aspen and getting him out. I was laid off my M-F job, so now Aspen has me all day....lots of training and playing going on right now. I wonder if he will be sad when I find M-F work again!
I am in a relationship. I am a teacher, DH is an attorney. We both work full time. During the week the dogs get all their exercise in the yard. Weekends though they are out and about. Training alone is a minimum 5 hour affair.
I work from home, my husband travels a lot so his time at home varies weekly. We hike in the woods daily, class weekly, training daily, and soon back to herding twice a week. I also take Stosh to the office at least once a week.
