    Default How Far.....

    Ok so now that it is nice I am going to try to take Coop for more walks...I think it will be good for him, and hell I need to shed a few lbs myself....or not just a few ALOT!!! Anyway we went on a walk yesterday, maybe a half mile and then again today we walked and picked my daughter up from school, about 2 blocks away! And of course Coop had to drop a big one on the way back in the school yard....... We busted a** out there before anyone knew it was us! Anyway I want to know...for all of you that take your bullies for walks how far do you go. Coop act like 2 blocks or well 4 all together there and back is like a marathon. His tongue hanging out like he is about to die. Well I was sweating too lol....I think we are both outa shape! But I don't want to push him too far and I have no clue how far these bullies can walk! Don't want to hurt my baby!

    About 2 blocks is good, if if gets hot don't even go that far. Here when it gets hot ours are out side, do your business and back in with no walk.

    We do about a block and a half, he is panting by the time we get home and flops down on the cool tile and passes out. Vegas is almost 3.

    Yes that is why I am doing the walks now! It is so nice with a bit of a chill. I live in Iowa and the summers get sooo hot and humid!!! We walked yesterday and he was one tired boy when we got home...to top it off he got bath after that so I think I wore him out. He went in the bedroom at 8 and never came back out lol!

    I also use to let him out and not chain him up but with this nice weather he has been roaming and leaving the yard so I finally started chaining him up and he will just sit outside for like a half hour just sitting there. He loves being outside. He wanted right out there when we got home from our walk!

    @GRACIE11 You tell her! You know how our daughters are - they don't think we know anything! I just brought my baby boy home and my daughter will be bringing hers home soon. I can already guess how that will go!

    Jake is a walker! I take him and Dena dog for about a 20 minute one early in the morning..now that the time has changed..they will get a late day one too! My hubby takes them up a mountin trail on a fire road on the weekends..and it's a few miles! Now...both of them are dog tired for about an hour after...but soon enough Jake is right back in my face trying to have me throw that DANG ball!

    In the winter time we take a walk for about 1 hour and in the summer time depending on the weather, if it's cool enough in the evening we might walk the same time. The pace of the walk is totally depended on Usko. When he's really in to it it can be more than 2 miles and when not it is a lot less.
