|I have two neighbors, one on both sides of my house, that NEVER walk their dogs. The one neighbor dog is an overweight Beagle, the other neighbor is a German Shepherd. The German Shepherd runs in circles all day, especially when other dogs or people walk by the fence. I've heard spinning is due to inadequate exercise. She barks constantly. They let her inside at night, but she's outside all day. She constantly paces the yard, and I really think it's because she is never exercised or even let outside of the backyard. The Beagle is overweight and would bay all day if they would let him. He is also outside all day long, but let in at night. So I guess they don't have the most hard and unfair life, other than not getting walked.
I walk my 3 big dogs 30 minutes a day. I have even thought about offering to walk these two dogs (one at a time of course), but the German Shepherd is so untrained I don't think I can handle her. The Beagle I have taken for a few walks, but I have my own dogs to walk too. He LOVES going for walks with me, and gets so excited when he sees the leash, I just wish I could walk him more and help the German Shepherd, as well.
I just wish there was a law saying you have to give your dog adequate exercise. I feel so bad for the dogs in my neighborhood that NEVER get to go on a walk. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest Anyone feel the same way?
