Start with a 10-15 minute warm up. A slow paced walk is great for this. It helps loosen stiff muscles and joints.

20-30 Minutes Aerobic – Match activities to your dog’s ability such as a fast leash walk. Take your dog along while you jog or bike. Swimming is one of best exercises to sooth your dog’s joint pain. It builds muscles without straining the joints and promotes blood circulation for faster healing. If you have access to a place where your dog can swim, it’s an excellent way to introduce low impact aerobic exercise.

20-30 Minutes Play Time – Play is a great way to keep your dog active. Play your dog’s favorite game; a ball, a frisbee or anything else that keeps your dog’s interest.

5-10 Minutes Cool Off – Slow down the pace with a gentle walk and be sure to give your dog plenty of water.

Just like in humans, the levels of joint pain from arthritis can change from day to day. You can see if your dog is excited to play or lethargic. Match your pet’s ability to the amount of exercise each day. Remember, the purpose of these exercises is to get your pet in shape, feeling better and never strain them.
