Default How to exercise a lazy dog

So i have a lazy dog. He barely like to play fetch. I mean he wont fetch forbno more than 15 mins. And he never brings the balk back. Only goes to a shady area.

Looked at your old posts. He has had Pano... perhaps you are expecting too much. 15 minutes fetch is a lot for a 6 month old who is prone to Pano.

Plus your temperatures are high 80s to low 90s. Dogs can't sweat. It may be way too hot for him. Get him a kiddie pool if you can.

My high drive dog will sometimes fetch his ball and jog over to any shade he can find and just stand there and look at me. Heat really zaps their energy. My full grown crazy ball drive dog couldn't fetch for more than 15 minutes in this weather.

How old is he now? What does the breeder say?

If available....swimming.....

Mine goes and sits in the shade after about 15-20 minutes of frisbee as well....in the winter, she'll go all day.

So, instead of pushing during the summer with the fetch and frisbee, we go for a swim and she loves it...probably stay in the lake for hours. if I let her.

I have a crack dog that will go from 110 miles an hour to 0. When he stops, I know that I've pushed him too hard. I should quit before he does.

I will say that if the dog runs after the ball every time you throw it but just doesn't bring it back then it's not the dog but the training.
