Most obese dogs with no pre-existing medical conditions should aim for five 30-minute walks per week. In your first week of concerted exercise, begin with 10 minutes of brisk activity followed by 20 minutes at a casual pace. Try to work your way up to two 30-minute walks per day by the fifth week, in which you're only doing 5 minutes of casual exploring per walk.
