Needs of exercise

Every exemplar must receive on a daily basis, and in function of its gender, race and age, an adequate dose of exercise.

To cover all the necessities of the dog it is important that you have enough time to adequate to the scheduled exercise time required for this particular breed.

Just as a breed of a low level will need no more than a few walks a day, one with the classification of medium level will enjoy these walks, but will also need a more intense session of exercises. Therefore, breeds classified in the high level will need even more sessions of hard work to be able to burn their energy. It is inadequate to select a high level breed for an advanced age person, as a low level breed would be for a young man with athletic needs.

In the same way, it would be inappropriate to choose a high level breed when not having the time to offer him a daily workout. For exemplars in the high levels, an intense daily exercise routine is very important to keep the correct functioning of its muscles and to burn all the exceeding fat. Also, don't forget that without his exact dose of exercise the dog will manifest certain changes in his conduct (hyperactivity, escape tendency, destructivity, etc)
