According to the survey, which was carried out online at the beginning of July, London dog owners are most likely to take their dog out at least once a day and almost half treat their dog to two walks a day.
Capital city dwellers are more likely to let their pet run free off the lead and play with toys or other dogs.
The survey of more than 3,000 dog owners across the country also found hounds living in the south east of England are more likely to have longer walks than those nationally, with 38% of pooches enjoying walks lasting longer than an hour, compared to 35% across the nation.
"London dogs in particular appear to have more opportunities to do what many dogs love"
"The results from our survey suggest that where we live has an impact on how we exercise our dogs" said Dr Samantha Gaines, dog welfare expert at the RSPCA.
"London dogs in particular appear to have more opportunities to do what many dogs love - playing with other dogs and their owners as well as toys and balls.
"There are some very lucky pooches in the capital but no matter where you live, you and your dog can enjoy some great walks.
"Taking your dog for a walk can have huge benefits for both of you.
"For many people dogs are a huge part of the family, and exercising with them offers great opportunities to spend quality time together and helps form a strong bond. It can also boost your own fitness and happiness levels.
"For dogs, having a good sniff and investigating their surroundings while on a walk can boost their health and happiness."
Almost 47% of dogs in the south east go out for a walk at least twice a day according to the research with only 13% never letting their dog off the lead, compared to 18% nationally.
The survey was carried out in the run up to this month's RSPCA Big Walkies challenge, which one familiar face is supporting.
Singer, Peter Andre, said: "It's important to remember how much happiness dogs bring to our lives.
"Sadly there are many dogs which are ill-treated every day and the RSPCA works incredibly hard to combat animal cruelty.
"I encourage dog-owners to sign up for My Big Walkies.
"Taking part will help raise money which will enable the RSPCA to carry out this vital work.
"It's also a fantastic opportunity to get out and about with your dog, while helping less fortunate dogs at the same time."
Dog walkers who sign up to the challenge will have to rack up 10,000 steps a day with or without their dog while being sponsored to do so in a bid to raise money for the RSCPA.
Some dogs may struggle with 10,000 steps each day depending on their age, breed and health, and owners should seek advice from the vet in regards to how much exercise their dog should have.
If animal lovers complete the challenge, they will have walked the equivalent of Canterbury to Bournemouth.
So what are you waiting for? Pull on your boots, grab the lead and head out into the fresh air with your four legged friend - they will thank you for it.
