Ek loop elke dag die hond.

As you might know, the time word comes right after the first verb, so ELKE DAG is well placed. However, you can also mix it a bit. You could say: Ek loop die hond elke dag. This does not feel wrong at all and simply places emphasis where it is meant. You could even pull the time word to the front: Elke dag loop ek die hond. If you want to pull DIE HOND out to the front to emphasize the object of the sentence, then we have a trick for that -- Passive Voice: Die hond word elke dag geloop.
