Is it their tail-wagging anticipation as you reach for their leash, handle a ball, or offer a treat? Is it their unconditional love and loyalty as they snuggle beside you on the couch? True, you could argue that it’s anyone—or all—of these things.

If you have a dog, you likely already know that sloppy kisses are part and parcel of pet parenthood. It’s a dog’s natural instinct to lick, and they may lick for a multitude of reasons. If your dog’s sloppy affection is becoming a source of irritation, there are ways we can discourage the behaviour. But first, it’s important to understand the motivation behind licking. To tackle a problem, it can help to know its cause.

When it comes to the question of how much exercise a dog will need, there is a long answer and a short answer. The short answer? Dogs, as a collective, will need between half an hour to two hours of daily exercise. If you have a smaller dog, half an hour to one hour per day will suffice. Larger dogs, on the other hand, will want anywhere between one to two hours per day.

If your dog’s heritage is unknown - maybe your dog was from a shelter or rescue, or originally a stray - you might find that question a little harder. But you probably have a good guess based on your dog’s looks and behaviour.
