How much exercise does a Sprocker Spaniel puppy need?
You may think your puppy needs lots of exercise to match those high energy levels, but actually, 5 minutes of walkies a day for each month of their life is plenty for them. It’s important to not overexercise them as it could cause problems later on in life.
At PitPat, we’ve taken this into consideration. Our app will adapt their tailored exercise goal to what your pup needs as they grow. Go one paw further and get yourself an activity monitor to track how much exercise your dog is getting each day, so you can get the balance just right.
How much exercise does a senior Sprocker Spaniel need?
As we get older, the amount of exercise we do reduces, and our dogs are no exception. As they show signs they are slowing down, start reducing the amount of exercise they do. Short and frequent works best for Sprocker Spaniels.
Another way you can reduce exercise time is by reducing the amount of vigorous playtime they have. It’s often forgotten that playtime does count as exercise, so make sure you account for this. Some dogs may want to play more than walk, and others not so much. So tailor how you split up their exercise to their needs and wants.
Best types of exercise for Sprocker Spaniels?
Agility – The agile, energetic pups love an agility course. Get started with some equipment in your garden, or contact your local agility club if you ready to get serious.
Scentwork – Spaniels have a powerful nose, one favoured to sniff out bombs, drugs, cash and more. Put your Sprocker’s nose to work with some nose games. Hide some treats, specially scented bags or a favourite toy and set them to go find it.
Tug of war – This is a great game to play when your dog is feeling particularly playful. But before playing tug of war make sure you get a dog-specific rope to play with, as this is much kinder on their teeth.
For all that energy your dog has burnt during the day, they’ll need the pawfect food to chow down on right?
So why not try PitPat Food? Along with our app and activity monitor, we can tell you exactly how many calories your dog has burnt, and how much food they’ll need to re-energise for tomorrow’s adventures. Plus, it’s super high quality and pawfect for active pups.
