But ABOVE ALL, no matter what kind of condition your dog is in, you need to watch your dog for signs of fatigue.
If your dog is having trouble breathing, panting hard or it’s pace is slowing down drastically, the walk should be terminated at once. At this point you should consult your veterinarian at once.
If you are just starting to walk a new puppy, or if your dog usually doesn’t get much exercise, you should start off slowly to build endurance levels. Add a block or two every five to seven days until you get up to the distance that works best for both of you.
If your dog has special health needs or problems, contact your veterinarian before you begin any exersize regiment.
Contact A Better Dog4U if you have any questions or if you need any help with your training. We will be glad to set up a personal consultation in order to help you any way that we can.
