My 10 month old boy Dre gets plenty of exercise (at least I think so). I try and take him or at least an hour long walk everyday (some days I don't), but on the days I'm not leash walking him I set up a little agility course with the deck in the back yard and he fetches his ball/stick for an hour about twice daily. But on the days I'm just exhausted from work and I can't do anything, would the back yard activities be suitable for proper exercise? It is about a 2 acre lot. The back yard is big enough he can get going full speed and it's surrounded by woods. I have him practice exercises I made up (I.e, running up the stairs to the deck, down the other stairs, then back around the deck with a sprint to finish where i chuck his ball deep into the woods where it turns into a mental challenge he has to find it underneath all the foliage.
Then on random days he does get special treats, like a trip to the river nearby where he can swim and hikes along trails, those are usually day trips we have planned when we have time.
I just hope I am doing enough for him. The big guy has tons and tons of energy and its funny to watch how fast he crashes out sometimes after I know he was worked good. Any thoughts or other back yard activities that I could do to switch it up?
