Exercise

The exercise requirements of a Lhasa Apso are relatively low because by and large the breed is happy exercising itself. But although Lhasa Apsos are busy little dogs and more than happy to amuse themselves, they still need a daily walk to keep them both physically fit and mentally stimulated.

The Lhasa Apso will thoroughly enjoy the extra physical and mental stimulation of a long daily walk. Surprisingly for a dog of their size, they will happily accept all the exercise opportunities they are offered. While they will happily live a sedentary life, the Lhasa Apso is a lively, intelligent little dog who will be even happier and live a healthier, longer life with more exercise.
