Feed before or after work out

that is my question.

Sometimes i feed nismo an hour or 2 before he plays fetch and sometimes i feed him after.

when would be better, or when would he get the most nutrition and benefit the most from his kibble?

since he's almost 9 months old i want to get a good routine going with him so he's used to the daily thing.

so far here is what i got down, these go every other day. (complicated i know)
day 1: hand walking and flirt pole
day 2: hand walking and spring pole
(i just made a spring pole, Nismo is stoked and loves it. I'll post pics tomorrow!)

any input is greatly appreciated!

Personally I NEVER feed before any kind of workout. I wait till at least 1 hr afterwords. It takes longer to digest food than 1 hour and I worry about bloat. I was also told that if a dog gets adrenaline in their system after they eat (with in 2 hours) it cause them not to digest the food correctly. They can even not retain the nutrition from the food. I know it is more technical than that but I had a dog that was having issues keeping weight on. What was happening is I was letting her out in the dog run (45 min after eating) and she paced all day. They said the adrenaline so soon after eating was the issue. After I kept her in a crate for 2 hours min after eating she gained weight and was fine.

Well I missed this one, but here is my input. I feed Vendetta and then about 15 min later we play fetch. I have to work and she needs to burn off energy. With my sister adn I both up at the same time and we each have a few dogs to take care it works best for us. I think Vendetta looks good she doesn't have trouble with bloat she maintains a good weight.

This has been bothering me too. We feed Josey 8 mo 39 lbs at about 7:30 a.m. and go for her walk about an hour later.
Since it has been so hot this summer she gets her dinner at about 5:30 p.m. and again a 45 min walk one to two hours later. Eating after the walk to me would seem too late at night. I'm sure we will change this when summer is done. Hope this is ok.

That is fine, feeding followed by hard activity is what is dangerous.
Walk is not hard activity and you are waiting long enough before the walk.

If you feed before working them, they will not be putting all their energy towards the activity. It takes energy for a dog to digest food, therefore you are cutting the amount of energy they have to put towards the activity. You should feed your dog after they work out, within 30 minutes to get maximum muscle recovery.

Think about it this way, how do you feel after you eat a big meal? The last thing you want to do an hour after eating is go workout, same thing for a dog.
