And there's the thing some say yes, some say no??My morning routine is walk first and feeding shortly after that. Food is not going to digest in 30 minutes. I'm no expert but I think bigger concern with bloat is if any heavy exercise (running) is done before/after meal time. I don't think a mile walk for a GSD before or after a feeding is going to be a high risk for causing bloat, but I would be wrong.
