It is important that you walk your dog at least once daily.
Your dog needs the daily exercise for health reasons and also it will take the boredom away from it else it is likely to be mischievous during the day; like digging your garden, chewing on things around the house, barking for your attention to play. After the walk, it is likely to rest peaceful during the day and it is not so restless.
Whether it is a small or big dog, it needs the daily walk.
Besides the exercise, your dog also gets to explore the surroundings and also socialize with who you come across during the walk; like your neighbors and possibly their dogs too, or even strangers around the housing area. Socializing your dog is also an important part of training your dog.
I recommend that you do it at the same time daily; like early in the morning or after dinner at night. You should also take the opportunity to toilet train your dog to pooh during the walk. Please remember to bring along some plastic bags or newspaper to pick up its pooh.
How long or far should you walk your dog?
Well, you need to make some judgments depending on the size of your dog. You may not walk too far for a small dog compared to a bigger dog. You should also take the age of the dog into consideration too, as the older dog even if it is a big dog, is likely not to have the same stamina as before.
If you tend to have a long walk as part of your routine or the route is such that there is no short-cut to it, then remember to let the dog rest and you may even want to carry a bottle of water and a small bowl for a water break.
What do you need for the walk?
I recommend that you leash your dog no matter how well it is trained as there could be people who are not comfortable with dogs, big or small ones. In Singapore, it is against the law and the owner could be fined if his dog is not leashed in public.
Please bring along some newspaper or plastic bags to pick up your dog pooh, if the park does not provide such pooh bags.
A bottle of water and a small bowl may be required, depending on the distance you intend to cover and also your dog too.
I have seen people jogging or cycling with their dogs, small or big ones, in the park and I noticed the poor dogs are having a hard time keeping up with their owners. Their tongues are hanging out of their mouths and some are even being dragged along too. I think you should avoid stressing your dogs unless you have done it often and you are aware of their stamina. They should be running by your side effortlessly.
I have 2 dogs and I either walk them separately or together as one is a 10 years old beagle and the other tracked carrier dog is a 5 years old corgi, a smaller dog. The beagle has better stamina than the corgi but it has also slowed down due to his age. They look forward to it daily and they are now trained to pooh at the same time too.

These blades or tines can be adjusted to certain depths.
The blades of the power rake should be adjusted to cut about 1/2 inch into the soil to remove thatch.
If you would like to fertilize or reseed the lawn, this is a good time as roots are exposed.
2) Rake the lawn manually- using a leaf rake, garden rake, or thatching rake. Thatch consist of grass clippings, grass stems, roots, and other debris that either decomposes or accumulates on a lawn over time.
Since some power dethatching can make a yard look bad, remember to dethatch when a lawn can recover the best such as right before the prime growing seasons. Always use an aerator that pulls plugs from the ground as opposed to the ones that poke holes.
Mark the pencil with your fingernail where the thatch comes up to.
If you decide to dethatch using a power rake mow the lawn to about half of its regular mowing height.
A few reasons thatch can occur are1) A lawn has never been aerated2) Cutting high grass frequently and leaving the clippings on a lawn. The first couple of times you can measure with a ruler.
1) Aeration- For lawns that have less than an inch of thatch.
After doing this a few times you will be able to eye it and know whether or not to dethatch.
Water Steering cylinder when you are finished dethatching. This is done with an aerator.
After dethatching, rake up all the debris and thatch. Use this when there is more than 1 inch of thatch on the lawn.
Having a healthy lawn can can definitely improve the look of the landscape and the curb appeal. Raking is fine for small to medium size lawns with thatch less than 1 inch.
As a guide, anything over 1/2 inch should be dethatched as this prevents adequete nutrients, air, and water from reaching the soil.You know that brown patchy debris in a lawn that accumulates on top of the soil but below the grass line? That's thatch.
Dethatching can be done in 3 ways depending on the size of the lawn and the amount of thatch accumulated. For example, (long ways and short ways) or (diagonal one way and diagonal the other way). Always go over the yard twice and change direction of your paths. Different types of grasses have best and worst times to dethatch because the growing seasons vary. I prefer to take a pencil and stick it in the thatch until it touches the ground.
Questions to be asked before removing thatch(dethatching)1) Is there enough thatch on the lawn to justify dethatching?2) If so, what process should I use to dethatch the lawn?Lawn business owners and homeowners need to measure the amount of thatch in a lawn to determine if dethatching needs to be done. Raking does take some time, but less stressful on the lawn than a Power Rake.
Best of Luck!
. Power Rakes are a stout piece of equipment that uses an engine like a lawn mower to drive vertical blades or tines to cut the surface of the soil.
You can rent either a power rake or an aerator from Home Depot or another equipment rental store in your area.
Thatch is not always a bad thing as it can hold moisture to protect the lawn from extreme heat and lack of water. Excessive thatch can also encourage pests and lawn diseases.
