5:30. I have to walk him between 5:30-6:15. If I go any later, I don't have enough time to get ready for work and be on the road when I need to be, and since he's crated all day, he really needs a good 45-min walk/run each morning to not go crazy in the crate. It was hard at first, but over 3 years, I'm used to it. I used to wait until 6, but then I started having to be at work almost an hour earlier. I just stay up, because by the time we get back, I have to be getting ready to leave for work. He is about four years old. He is a rescue, and kind of a mess with separation anxiety CertaPet Reviews: Shocking Info Revealed and My Expirience , so we have to exercise him a lot to wear him out, to combat how panic-y he gets. I do the a.m. walk, my boyfriend does the after-work walk (again, about 45 minutes). We don't usually have to do an evening walk, but we did when he was younger. Other than not needing a long walk before bed anymore, his exercise needs haven't really changed. He's pretty anxious and high-energy.
