    Questions for dog walkers 19th Sep 17 at 8:38 PM
    What time of day is your last walk of the day with your dog and how far do you go?

    I usually go out about 8pm and we walk roughly 2 miles, more if he hasn't pooped yet.

    Other dog walkers that I have spoken to go out at about the same time but don't walk as far as I do so it just got me wondering.

    mine goes out for about an hour or so in the morning about 7.30 to 8, either across fields where I live or through the local woods, off lead for 99% of it so he goes where ever he wants, ( still in sight of me within reason).
    The afternoon walk is for about 30 minutes, again around the fields and off the lead.This about 4pm. He has a lot of play as we know 90% of the other dogs we meet

    Now that it is fully dark here at 8pm, it's difficult finding different routes that have any kind of lighting, I like to see where my feet are but some of the paths have no lights at all. I already need to take a torch with me just in case he picks a dark spot to poo in

    The following is always off lead. In the summer I usually take my Lab out for a hike (5 to 8 miles) mid morning, and then a gentler walk in the afternoon with my wife for about 40 mins to an hour. We don't tend to take him out in the evening, but he does have the run of a very large garden. In the winter, it can vary, he sometimes gets similar to teh Summer, but less if the weather is bad (rain, not cold, I sweat when hiking even in January) , but he will always get at least a 3 mile brisk walk or jog with me.

    After running injuries I now mostly hike, gym classes and weight training (also a bit of cycling and swimming), less impact on my joints.

    We don't have any kind of routine at all so it varies enormously.

    If it's hot my dogs get walked about 6am for at least an hour and then probably 11pm for about an hour. Me and DH will not walk them during the day as it is unfair. They hate the heat and the pavements can burn their pads.

    On cooler days they can be walked any time between 6am and 10am for around an hour and a half to two hours. The last walk can be as early as 5pm to as late as 10pm usually for about an hour.

    In cool weather they usually get a lunchtime/early afternoon walk too
