Some common reasons dogs pant heavily include: Heatstroke or poisoning.

It's normal for a dog to start breathing harder or panting after exertion.

And some dogs, like Boston terriers, bulldogs, and pugs, are prone to heavier breathing than other dogs because of their short snouts.

A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.

15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.

Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.

Most need about an ounce of fluids per pound of body weight per day, so a 10-pound dog needs a bit over a cup of clean water daily.

Really active or lactating dogs may need more and puppies generally drink more than adult dogs.

If your dog drinks a lot more than that, it may signal a health problem.
