Don't feed right after a walk/execise?

I've read an incredible amount on GSD feeding. This is the first I've read about waiting thirty minutes after exercise to feed. Is this true? What is the reasoning?

Thanks.

I keep my dogs toned down almost an hour before they eat and atleast an hour after they eat.

Thank you. How long would you wait after eating for a walk? No running, just a nice slow walk?

as ken said, about the same time, and yes, also watch water intake, you don't want them slugging a ton of water all at once especially if they are really hot, really thirsty.

I would give at least 45 minutes before and after. I'm trying to figure out a schedule in the morning for them when I move. I want to be able to exercise them in the morning so they sleep during the day. I'm thinking up at 5, out to pee/poop, then eat and then back out at about 6-615 until about 700ish.

I do an hour. Better safe than sorry. Vet said not to give him more than one cup of water after exercise. He never wants to drink right after, anyway.

I'm a risk taker. I wait 20 minutes. Then again, I'm familiar with the signs of bloat, and I keep Gas-x strips in my cabinet. I probably wouldn't take my own advice... I would wait for someone who has lost a dog to bloat to chime in. I have three dogs, two breeds, and both breeds are prone to bloat, but I only have five hours each evening to exercise, feed, train my dogs and vacuum up after them.... We don't have time to sit around waiting to live our lives based on unproven theories. We have to walk first, then we have to play, then we have to train, which is when they earn their food. And they are each on their own schedules, which means I have to complete each task three times per day. None of mine are athletes, though. Just house pets. And none of mine get to work out more than 15-20 minutes at a time.... Especially in this south Texas heat. If I were going to work any individual dog longer or harder, I would definitely wait an hour or more before and after!
