      Thank you for saying that. A good dog does get adequate exercise but training is mostly what makes a good dog. And that takes good owners.

      It's not about NOT exercising a dog. absolutely a young dog needs a good amount of daily physical exercise to build muscle and work out the crazies. It's about TYPE of exercise. Some exercise can put a strain on growing joints and cause long term issues (which you won't know until years down the line). remember everything is very much in development and not a solid adult body there.

      Working the brain goes a very very long way to tiring out a dog too so you want to work body and mind.

      I been taking gigi to the dog park more as she is 10 months and is spayed now. She can go for 30-45 minutes and spends the next 2 days as a awesome dog. she goes to day care for once a week.I do walk her 2-3 miles a day when not snowing or wet not really want to slip and fall with my back. We work on training. just got the 101 dog tricks from amazon to work with her.

      Thanks for the idea about the book. I found a used copy of the 51 puppy tricks on Amazon. We're trying to keep her busy with new things through the winter since we can't be outside as much. Looks like much of it is what we've done in obedience but maybe we can expand on what we've learned from the ideas in the book.
