One thought on “How much exercise should I give my West Highland Terrier?

  1. Arti says:

    Westies are intelligent dogs who love to problem solve, so as well as their daily walks, why not change up their routine with a few of these fun activities? As with all breeds of dog the amount of exercise a Westie needs will be dependent on their age, weight and fitness level. Until they have had all their vaccinations they won’t be going outside at all, and even after they start to do so, it’s a good idea to use play as the primary form of exercise. It’s important to build up their stamina and fitness level gradually, so start with shorter distances and slowly build up to those long distance runs. While running keep an eye on your pup for any signs that they might be overtired or in pain, and make sure to reduce their activity if this is the case. West Highland Terrier puppies do not need as much exercise as adults, and care should be taken not to over-exercise them as their bones, muscles and joints will still be developing. Running is a fewthing West Highland Terriers love to do and they can make great running companions. Runnin
