Dogs are like people: they come in all shapes and sizes, at all fitness levels and with a wide range of needs. And just like us, dogs are subject to becoming obese and lethargic, so it is our responsibility to help them keep a healthy weight and exercise regularly. The degree of exercise intensity varies by the dog breed and age and weather conditions.
There are seven different categories of dogs. I will mention only four of the most common in this post (I’ll cover the other three in my next post). Understanding a dog’s category actually helps you understand what the dog needs, what his or her history is and the dog’s tendencies. The more you know about your dog, the fewer surprises you will have as an owner, and the better off you and your pooch will be.
