Topic: What is "enough" excersize?
Replies: 13
Views: 1154

Just my opinion, but I don't think that a super muscular dog needs more exercise, than a not so muscular dog. I have a friend whose dog stays pretty toned up, with chasing a ball for 20 minutes a day, and lying on the couch the rest of the day. But Jada(my dog) isn't very muscular, not fat by any me...

I love Nylon collars. I FINALLY found 1.5" purple Nylon collar, with a METAL snap buckle(instead of belt type buckle). Nice and thick, and the buck is very sturdy. Only $8 at Tractor Supply Co.
Normally Jada wears the little fashion collars from a little doggie boutique thats local.

Jada was 21lbs at 15 weeks, and is usually between 46 and 48lbs. She's a little over 2 years.

I've always heard the same as Lora, double what they weigh at 4 months, and thats about what their adult weight will be.

Jada has been having some more boogers lately. My guess is its ragweed. She usually has allergies 2x a year, and this is one of them. I just give her a Benedryl at night if she acts itchy or anything.

Jada sometimes feels warm to the touch. Especially if she's been lying on a certain area, or if I've been rubbing her there(friction). Maybe it was one of these things causing the heat?

Whisker loss?

Weird question. Jada and I were running errands today, and while waiting for a friend at the pet store, I started messing with her face. I accidently pulled a whisker out. She did nothing, didn't even register that it had come out. And I barely pulled it! So of course I had to start picking some mor...

The only reason you want to avoid feeding them very close together is because one digests more quickly than the other. I can't remember which one is which. But it can deprive the dog of nutrients.

The only problem I see is that with a raw diet, she would be getting NO bone. Which a really important part of any raw diet. I would stick with some kibble for now until you can get some bone in the diet. Raw is just as easy as kibble. I don't have any freezer room right now until I get a new deep f...

Could still be adjusting to the food. I can take up to 6 weeks to fully adjust. Jada is on Canidae, and we love it!

Lol, sounds like staph, but thats not a diagnosis. The first time Jada got it was on her back, and I squeezed, and this gross smelling pus came out. Just taken em on into the vet and get it checked out to be sure!

I swear, sometimes I think they fake it to get attention. Jada was looking better, but I've decided to crate until Wed. even though she's not limping. We have a show this weekend, so I'd rather be safe than sorry.
