Even if you don’t make it to the gym or go for a run around the park as often as you would like, you know that you need to exercise every day to stay healthy. But what about your Goldendoodle? While everybody knows that people need exercise, they may not realize that dogs need exercise too.
So, how much exercise do Goldendoodles need?
What are Goldendoodles exercise needs?
Anyone who has spent time around Goldendoodles knows that while they can show loving enthusiasm and playful excitement, they’re also content napping and relaxing with the family.
Goldendoodles have an average energy level. This means that Goldendoodles don’t need to run around for hours on end like high energy dog breeds, but they do still need a fair amount of physical activity on a daily basis.
Goldendoodles need 20 to 30 minutes of exercise or physical activity every day. Half an hour of play time or physical activity for your Goldendoodle should be enough to keep your pup happy and healthy.
Why do Goldendoodles need exercise?
Goldendoodles need exercise for the same reasons that people need to exercise. Physical activity helps keep them happy and healthy. Regular exercise helps:
- strengthen muscles
- improve mobility
- manage a healthy weight
- improve mood
20 to 30 minutes of physical activity will help keep your Goldendoodle from chewing on things, barking, and other behaviors that come from restlessness and boredom.
