My dog gets 2 really good walks or runs a day, up to an hour and a half at times. I play with him out the back too for about half an hour each day. :)

I let Zed out in the field first thing in the morning for about 20 min. Then after work i bring him out for about an hour, depends on the weather. He would go for a swim too. Years ago id be gone for atleat 3 hours with the dogs i had. I do be to tired, cold etc to bring Zed out for that long Sad

I head out everyday for a good long walk but I do let it slide the odd day when I'm hung over lol! Sometimes I bring her to my local swimming pool and she does at least 400m doggy paddle and she loves it :D after the swim she likes to do 30 mins on the tread mill and then 30mins lifting weights after that she pretty screwed lol! she also likes the the high jump and a bit of rock climbing but lately she's turned her interest to caving, unfortunately there's no caves me my yard so she resorted to digging her own lol!

A pity would go all day and thats no joke, Ive only seen cleo tired once after a walk, last year me vin and another mate hit the mountains with our 3 pits and were flat out running for about 3-4 hours through rivers up hills etc..

That night she couldn't get off the couch lol!

MOVED TO GENERAL DISCUSSION

How much exercise do they get? Also how do Staffies compare with Pits exercise wise? How much would they need to do (I know there isn't really a max lol)

I'd say staffs would need around the same amount of exercise as a pit (Or a bit less), because they're both very agile and very athletic dogs.
