How do you know your dog is getting enuf exercise?
Kodee is 9 mos old and 70 lbs. He's a housedog, and I try to exercise him with walks and playing fetch out back, but he is never left alone outdoors, which limits his time outside, of course. He does not seem restless or destructive, he has had quite a bit of obedience training (at home by me), and the vet says he's in excellent shape.
However, I have not gotten outside with him a lot this winter, which makes me feel guilty, even though he seems perfectly fine with the exercise he's getting. We also play catch in the house, or "find it" every evening before bed. He gets training sessions usually 1-3 times (briefly) throughout the day. Last night was nice out til late, so he played frisbee at about 8:00 p.m. last night, which is unusual right now (weather in KS is iffy still). He sleeps through the night without acting restless (when we go to my room at night he lays down and goes right to sleep, normally). I know as spring warms up and summer comes, we will be outside all the time (with my 3 kids also). I can't wait!
But for now, what I want to know is: How do you know if your GSD is getting enough (or too little) exercise?
