Re: how active..

LOL Tracy... Riley currently looks exactly the same! (it was a busy snow day and christmas party fun).

we walk about 3 - 5 miles a day, but don't have much of a backyard so most of her activity is inside after that (especially in the cold weather )

Her walks keep her pretty mellow, but the ice, tug of war, and chasing after the vacuum always make her a bit crazy. active in the morning and when I get home from work- both are walk times, though!

Re: how active..

It really depends on the time of day and how much exercise they've gotten. Chama isn't very active in the house anymore but she still watches me a lot to be sure I'm not giving out treats while she's asleep!

And Rafi is very active in the morning. He typically plays with his toys and follows me around the house. After he's had his 3 short walks and his one long walk and playtime outside he is very sleepy! I am about to take him out for a snowshoe but he's fast asleep right now. He's mellower in the evenings unless he's been cheated out of exercise!

Kai was like an energizer bunny though. He did not stop moving unless he was crated. He was constantly inventing games for himself, playing with toys, etc.

I had one of those too. The ONLY time that dog EVER slept was if he was crated. (And that ws from 8 weeks on.)

His funnest "game" was to run full speed and hit the back of the couch (Not the "top" but the part your back rests against.) with all 4 legs and try to tip it over!

Re: how active..

my dogs are indoor dogs. they're outside for walks and play. i play with them inside but my GF doesn't really like it. my next door neighbor brings their Shepherd over to play in our yard or he brings our dog to his yard. when the dogs are playing in the yard one of us keeps an eye on them. we never leave our dogs unattended.

OMG yes, Jesse is where we are all the time (unless on the rare occasion when grocery shopping etc). He gets 3 walks a day 20-30 minutes each plus play time in the house and out in the backyard. Summer time he swims everyday in our pool.

Re: how active..

Gunner never stops. He'll take a few short, half hour snoozes throughout the day and night but other than that, right up until bedtime he wants to play. If I'm not "busy", to where he knows that I'm doing something, he's bringing me the ball, playing with Riley, chasing the cat or doing something.
He will lay on the couch and chill out, but he's always watching me. If I give the slightest indication that I might be willing to play (like if I move) he's up like a shot and ready to go.
I love it. He definitely keeps me active!

Re: how active..

My dogs are indoor dogs.
Cody sleeps most of the day since it hurts him to walk a lot due to his arthritis but he still likes to go on walks and run after the ball at the park for an hour. Isa also sleeps a lot unless she's outside. Since it's snowing here right now, finally, they like to be outside for a few hours and then sit at the door when they want to come back in.

Isa 10 years

Re: how active..

Boneless blob. Bring out a giant spatula, and turn him every 30 minutes. He was more active indoors when he was fed kibble. Now on the raw (no carb jitters)-- boneless blob.
