All dogs need exercise to promote both mental and physical health. However, most owners aren’t sure if their dogs get the right amount or even how much they need.

A couple of laps in your neighborhood might be sufficient exercise for some four-legged family members, but some dogs require much, much more.
Here’s a run-down of 10 types of dogs and their specific exercise requirements.

Though you may believe that you are your dog’s best friend, they may have canine best friends as well.
Like many mammals, dogs evolved as pack animals, most likely to increase their likelihood of survival. But along with that pack mentality, dogs also developed the ability to bond socially. That bonding led to the ability to work proficiently as a team while hunting and a sense of loyalty between members of the pack.
While most of that bonding has now passed to dog-owner relationships, your dog probably still bonds with other canines. You may notice your pet has preferred playmates, who they may be less aggressive towards or more tolerant of their presence. Several factors contribute to this preference, such as playstyle, energy level, and temperament.
Here are a few ways to figure out if your dog has a best friend.
