Lifestyle Data

Each year we ask the owners about theirs dog's activities throughout the year. We ask about walking, swimming and other forms of exercise.

For many activities, we ask additional details.  For example, if the dogs swim regularly, we ask whether they swim in a lake or the ocean.  Or if they go for walks regularly, how vigorous are these walks?  How frequently do they play fetch? On what kind of surface do they normally play?  All these details are available in the Data Commons and can be used to get a clear picture of each dog's lifestyle.
