Border Collie/Lab mix exercise requirements

I've done quite a bit of research on the internet regarding this topic.

However I found a lot of discrepancies.

How much exercise does a lab/collie mix actually need per day to stay non-destructive? I know it varies from dog to dog, but generally speaking.

I also know the requirement for mental stimulation, however I am more interested in the physical requirements.

Thanks in advance.

As a puppy she will need many short burst of exercise with time to rest in between. When she is older she will need a few hours of exercise like Melinda said. Probably 2 or 3 walk that are an hour to an hour and a half in length each. Go based on how your dog responds to the exercise and adjust accordingly.
