How much exercise do chow chows need?

Chow chows need 45-60 minutes of exercise daily which can be divided into two or more shorter walks.

Chow chows have a stocky build and a stilted way of walking – with their unusual straight back legs they seem to strut rather than stride gracefully. This means the breed isn’t built to be the best companion if you love long runs or cycle rides.

If you’re looking for a dog that won’t demand constant activity to burn off its energy but will enjoy venturing out to enjoy a bit of fresh air and a gentle stroll around the neighborhood, a well-socialized chow chow is a great choice.
