Stair climber for Toby!

Postby Cuddlemonkey » Thu Oct 28, 2004 2:31 am

I live in an 18 story highrise. My pup is six months old right now. I take him to the dog park from 5:30-7pm EVERY day, rain or shine! Do you think it would be too hard on his bones, and joints if I were to walk him up 10-18 flights of stairs per day just to supplement his Toby Time at night.

holy cow!
i'm having hip problems just thinking about 18 flights of stairs!!!

I'd certainly think 5 or 6 wouldn't be so bad, but IMO you should wait until the pup is at least 10 months to start doing the full array of stairs.

Bravo, do you need hyperbaric chambers up that high?

I do not have a hyperbaric chamber, but that is probably why my ears pop everytime I to the elevator to the 18th floor
