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?

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!
