Skype? 🙂 Maybe volunteer at a shelter? Pet sit? Dog walk?
When it comes to exercise, some dogs tend to out do themselves. The amount of exercise you should supply depends on breed, age, weight, and health.
If your dog is overweight, you have to imagine what the exercise routine you’re doing would feel like to an overweight person. They certainly aren’t conditioned to run a 5k, and the extra weight puts stress on joints and muscles. Depending on the size of your dog, 7 years old could also be considered a senior dog as well. So on top of being overweight, you have to worry about arthritis and a decrease in stamina.
If your dog is showing signs of being sore, it is your responsibility to make sure he takes a break. Dogs do things they shouldn’t do all the time, he will hurt himself. Also make sure that you’re combing this exercise routine with a good diet. Calorie intake plays just as much of a role as fat burning!
And thank you for caring about your pet’s weight 🙂

My pretty dog Ellie. She’s a 1 year old mix with gorgeous eyes.
Love our family! And our neighbor’s dog too! #dogsarefamilytoo
They are different breeds altogether, and I’d say Shelties have a bit more energy. Outside of that, i believe they are pretty similar. The ones I have met have been equally calm, yet vocal.
Let’s ask the experts!

This is my new puppy named Paris he’s named after a Star Trek character (which is odd because I never thought I’d name a pet after someone from a tv series) he’s only nine weeks old (so I got him recently) he’s very smart (to my advantage Hahahah) he’s just over all really handsome and I wanted to share him!
This is my friends dog Tessa. She’s mostly part Husky but they believe she has part Collie and part sheepdog in her as well. She’s super energetic and loves people and other dogs. When I go for runs with my friend and her mom walks behind us, Tessa will run up with us and try to herd us back.
I’ve seen a few episodes, they seem to be knowledgeable and careful with how they place their dogs. I guess I haven’t seen much of how they actually treat the dogs. Is there something in particular you’re referring to?
Hahaha gross, no. Dogs don’t understand that you’re naked… I think it is normal to feel awkward and not want to have eyes staring at you, but it is also normal to not even care. My dog is certainly not modest in front of me!
Boo, our English Terrible Bulldog. She is 1 year old.
My Shih Tzu mix 3month old pups so adorable.
Roscoe and I just moved to Seattle and we discovered the joys of a dog park with lake access. Took me over an hour to convince him to get out of the lake to head home. He’s a happy, happy pup.

From my experience, training would be apart of your daycare experience. You can pay for additional training to help, but whomever is supervising the group should be correcting those behaviors immediately. Daycare shouldn’t just be a free for all, and it is beneficial to the person managing the group to manage those behaviors anyway.
It sounds like your dog is most likely learning those behaviors from another dog that goes there, or at least being put in situations where he needs to be snappy. At 3 months old he is learning how to play and how to push boundaries. If he is making friends with rough housers, that’s how he is going to play. It doesn’t sound like aggression, it sounds like he needs guidance on proper play.
I would definitely talk with the daycare, see what their methods are on giving corrections. They could be the root of the problem, or it could be a certain mix of dogs that just don’t get along. Some daycares get too many dogs than they can handle and end up having to put many dogs together that shouldn’t be. Combine that with handlers that don’t understand canine body language, and you can damage a dog’s personality! Make sure they don’t use aversive corrections, they should only use positive reinforcement and redirection. If they are the ones who told you your 3mo is aggressive, you might want to seek help elsewhere.
My dog ate an entire package of sugarless gum, which is full of Xylitol – a substance poisonous to dogs.

Evie and Astaroth, my two precious pups. I love them so much.
Very cool! I’d love to visit Alaska one day.
I don’t think so, as long as the dog enjoys pulling. But if a dog doesn’t want to pull – it won’t.
Feel free to express your opinions, don’t feel like my word is the end all be all!
The regulated sport of weight pulling is humane, yes. Anything can be inhumane when done improperly, but there are rules and guidelines in place to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of a dog when it is participating at a pulling event.
The important thing to realize is that you cannot force a dog to pull. Pulling is something the dog must do out of its own free will, and most will do it gladly with excitement and enthusiasm. (Just like your dog might do on a walk? eh?) Dogs, especially those bred to pull, need that outlet just as any other breed would benefit from doing what they were bred for.
It gets sticky when you have unconditioned dogs trying to pull more than they should. Just like you and I would need to prepare to lift weights or run a marathon, dogs are at risk for injury when their desire to pull is stronger than their muscles.
It is also fun to know that any breed can participate, so while you might have a certain image in mind, some championship winners have been the Norwegian Elkhound, Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Husky, Patterdale Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, Basenji, Boston Terrier, & Chinese Crested!

Happy 10th Birthday to my handsome Tucker! <3
We were told when he was 8 he had a few months to live. I prayed for a 9th birthday… and here he is at 10. It’s a very emotional one for me since I thought I was going to lose my best friend. I am so very happy and thankful to be able to share his 10th birthday with him and to see him so happy for all of it!
Happy Birthday handsome!! I hope you had a great day <3

Yes. Dogs can get dental disease, especially once they’re in their senior years and have had years of poor dental care. But dogs can start to develop tartar and plaque by the time they are 3. The bones and chews recommended yesterday can help maintain oral health, but most vets recommend getting their teeth cleaned once a year, along with brushing daily.
They make toothbrushes, finger brushes, and even wipes for dog’s teeth. Never use human toothpastes – they make dog toothpastes. It may seem unnecessary, but once you’ve seen a dog with dental disease… It is not only just gross and smelly, but it affects the overall health of the dog. They cannot eat because they’re in pain, they can lose teeth, have bleeding gums, and it can even harm their internal organs from the spread of bacteria.
This is my mutt Maggie! She’s a pit bull mix that we rescued almost 3 years ago that we’ve discovered will eat absolutely anything (including the chocolate chips you left on the edge of the counter while making cookies…)
Meet Brandi our 11 year old Pit/Lab mix. She loves going for rides in the Jeep when the tops off.

This is my Puffen, a japaneese spitz. He’s the goofiest, weirdest dog ever, but he’s the most important in my life
There are plenty of horror stories on the Internet.. They have the same concerns that go along with Rawhides. They are not easily digestible, they are a choking hazard, they can cause fatal impaction, and they aren’t made of quality ingredients. They certainly clean teeth, but they have also been retrieved from a dog’s digestive tract hard and intact days after ingestion! Any chew or bone is going to be a choking or impaction hazard, though, and not every dog is going to have these issues.
But here are the first few ingredients in a Greenie: Wheat flour, wheat protein isolate, glycerin, gelatin, oat fiber, water, lecithin, natural poultry flavor
And here Natural Balance Dental Chews: Pumpkin, Potato Starch, Chicken Meal, Glycerin, Papaya, Natural Chicken Flavor
So, there are definitely better ingredients for your dog out there that will still clean their teeth.
