What are you meaning by lethargic? Like he acts sick, or he is just lazy and finally acting civil

If i dont work my dog he is smitten, zooms around the house, barks at me to play and go outside, but afterwords he is civil, peaceful and mellow.

How old is the dog? all dogs are different, some dogs dont take as much to work as others will take all day before they tire.

Def. needs to get use to it since its been lazy time for the last few months.


For the water thing, give him some water to chug as usual, but not as much, then put icecubes in the water dish to replace the rest of the water. This way your dog doesnt have a chance to drink himself into vomitting. You can also do like a 50/50 mix of water and ice cubes.

Hope some of this helps.

I have to go and find the info I rad last year on the ice cube idea. It is not a good idea to do that one dog died and another was seriously ill when a owner did this I just can rember what I read. I will get back to you in a bit on that.

Are you working on anything that makes him think? I know that when I work obedience or agility or drill team all my dogs are more tired then if I just let them play.

mental training is simple! sit, down, stay, stand, and on ocassion roll over! you can do 5-10 min sessions a day or maybe even 3 or 4 times a day. this is all training him mentally. there are many other ways u can train your dog mentally like practicing dominance or practicing going up and down the stairs well mannered, hell you can make up your own mental excersizes! it doesnt drain as much energy as you would if u were going for a jog but anything helps.

I beg to differ with you. I do 1/2 hr of obedience training with Vendetta everyday and she is way more tired after a 1/2 hr than when we go out side and play fetch for 1/2hr.

To the OP how is doing now that he has been on some exercise everyday for a while? Is he still tired? You know Mikado only needed an hour of exercise a day he was more laid back. Chalice was high energy and need more like 4-5 hours of exercise to tire her out.
