Petite Golden Retriever Activity Requirements
Your Petite Golden Retriever is quite an active breed and, as such, anyone who lives in an apartment or condo will need to take her exercise needs into consideration. She will require a strong daily commitment to 1 to 2 hours of daily walks or jogs, playtime in the dog park or fenced back yard, interactive games of fetch, Frisbee, seek and find, earth dog activities, agility and obedience training and practice. It is important to keep her mentally challenged as well as physically challenged to avoid the frustrating behaviors which develop from boredom. She can live in an apartment or condo, provided her exercise needs are met daily, or she can live in a family home with or without a fenced yard. She gets a moderate hunting drive from both sides of the bio mix, so you would be well advised to keep her on leash when outside the house or enclosed area...unless, of course, chasing her throughout the neighborhood in pursuit of a small animal or interesting scent has been intentionally planned in your exercise regimen. She is best suited to moderate temperatures, with extra precautions taken during the temperature extremes. She can live in rural or urban settings, provided her exercise needs are met.
