Default Walking in the hallway

Hi guys happy new year. I got a question about walking my 1 year and a month old boy Cookie. The weather in Canada is very cold everyday now and even snowing almost everyday so I didnt walk Cookie outdoor now but I am living in a condo and I did walk him in the hallway and the lobby twise a day. First time is 15 mins and the second time is 25 mins. My lobby is busy so he can meet a lot of people there. My question is if I can still release his energy by just walk him indoor?

Absolutely, it's one of the "perks" of having a Chihuahua for a lot of people. We love to take our three out for long hikes and walks - when the weather is nice. If it's miserable, which is is about 8 months of the year here, we stay indoors most days They get more than enough exercise running around the house playing fetch and chasing each other, so no reason Cookie's walks can't be inside where it's warm and dry

Oh I thought It must done in outdoor lol. By the way he is weight 6.8 lbs so is kind of over weight so should I walk him more longer? He eats about 105ml kibble each day spead to two meals but today I am cutting down to 95ml.

Whether he is overweight should be determined by looking at and feeling the dog's body more than the scale. you should be able to feel his ribs pretty easily. I think someone here described it as running your hand over the back of your other hand. If you have to push at all to feel ribs, he has some extra "fluff". If you have not switched off puppy food, it would be a good idea to do that as well. And extra walks never hurt either!

Playing fetch inside, getting him to go up and down stairs (throw a ball/toy upstairs and have him fetch it). My chi's don't go out in this weather either. They are older, so don't seem to need much exercise, other than running after each other etc.

I can still feel his ribs by hand on the side of his body but cant feel the ribs on top of homis body. He been eating Acana pacifica since he was 7 months ago. I am living in a condo so we dont have a stair at home but i do throw the ball to the back of the house and let him run for it.

You can also give him his meals in a puzzle ball and teach him tricks and work on obedience. Giving him a mental work out is very tiring for a dog too!
