Now that the weather is getting colder (where I live anyway), I was wondering how much exercise everybody gives there dogs in winter. I'll admit that during winter our cavaliers didn't get walked much, but they didn't really mind - they had each other to play with and free access to the backyard. But they didn't really like the cold and they even put off trips outside for the toilet as long as possible and made them as quick as they could. But I think Holly is very different. She is a very busy little dog so I think as she gets older she is going to be less and less able to cope with a day without a walk (at the moment she gets a walk everyday except on agility class day, and she usually gets a training session and a kong ot other chew in the evening) and will likely need two walks a day when she is an adult. So, my question is; how much does the colder weather affect how much exercise your dog gets? Additionally, if you still walk your dog every day in winter - how bad does the weather have to be for you to miss the walk? (eg, just cold, rain, snow, extreme wind etc) and do you change the time of day that the walk takes place? (eg to avoid walking in the dark) And if you have to miss a walk what do you do to keep your dog entertained and use up some energy?
