Find creative ways to exercise!

Exercising a big dog is tough. I learned quickly that once the dog got some size to him that walking him was not going to work. We would go for a walk and I would get tired, we would get home and he is bouncing off the walls because he is only warmed up! So the trick is how do you work hard enough to get your dog good and exhausted? The answer, GET CREATIVE!!

Go for a bike ride, skating, running, playing fetch...... with a frisbee!, swimming is great (especially in the summer!)


  1. Thanks for sharing above information and tips for pet training. Keep it on update. How to train your dog is a question asked by almost all dog owners. It seems everyone has advice and tips, and opinions on the best way to train your dog. Training your dog is a must to avoid dog behaviour problems. So what easy steps to train your dog?
    1. You can always use toys instead of treats if your dog is not motivated by food. Use a special toy that you can keep especially for training, like a tug-toy or a squeaky toy.
    2. Your training session should only be about 5 to 10 minutes long, and you can train several times a day (up to 3 times a day).
    3. Don’t forget to always praise your dog throughout the training, especially when he completes the roll over trick. You want your dog to have the greatest fun during training, and if you are enthusiastic, he will pick up your energy and will be more willing to work with you. Thanks.

  2. take a look at these new dog / human powered rigs that are much safer than using a bicycle with steering control over the dog and the dog limited to only forward motion. but forward they can go full blast !
