Question How early....Is too early...

Hello again, =]
I have been playing tug with Tuff as long as he has been able/willing to play, and now at 6 months I am introducing him to the rope being tied up and him having to hang a little. He loves it! I am really hoping that we can make a good hobby out of high jumping and hanging in the future. I was just kindof wondering around what age I should start to work him out a little more? Right now I just play with him throughout the day and dont really do much for structured work outs. I havent started jogging him because i'm not sure if he is too young. I worry about paw and joint issues...
But anywho! any extra input or anything you guys could add would be super helpful!

Just make sure when he does spring pole that he can touch the ground with his back feet. It's ok to have him jump up for it but makes sure he can touch to avoid injury if he falls. Here's a vid of my boy he jumps high but he can work down and touch.

I think I have read on here you should wait until he is about a year to start jogging him... that is when his body is more developed...I could be wrong, it may be even longer then a year. Hopefully someone that knows will answer, in the mean time I will search it for you.


found this thread. PK is great and knows her stuff. Good info that you'd be interested in

Some will tell you to wait until your dog is older around a yr to start running with your dog but I think that if you are jogging on a soft surface such asa dirt trail and you stop when your dog starts to slow down you will not hurt him. I wouldn't do any running on asphalt as that is a very hard unforgiving surface.

my staffy bull is closing in on 6mo also. as far as conditioning goes i tug with him indoors with toys he knows are for inside only. we play fetch indoors to reinforce recall/release/leave/sit/stay commands usually with a rotation of 2-3 toys. outside i am introducing him to a spring pole slowly. he is more of a catch dog than a rope dog. he already has cought 3 birds in mid air, climbed a tree and got a squirrel and i use him to flush out groundhogs in my father in laws garden. he never got close to it, we just flushed the hog out. so with knowing this i do what i can untill i can get cow hides. i flirt pole him once i start to see his interest levels drop off. he will not stop flirting, refuses. he already can reach my collar bone with his back line. i end the game after reading his body language. i will take him inside and rest him, he plays with my 3 daughters and take a nap. once the sun goes down i will take him for a walk using a red light to drive him to a strong trott and i will have a light jog. when i see him lose focus i say a "target" command and he looks for the red light and drives again. as soon as we get home he blitzes for the back door and he plays "target" in the dark with the red dot. again i read his body language and bring him in. wife and kids know to have a fresh bowl of cold water. he grabs some then he finds the couch my daughters are on and curls up with them.

you can work out Tuff you just have to read body talk and end games on your terms. dont have to push him to a pace you want, but what you feel he can handle. onyx loves to work, LOVES to WORK!!!!! if he feels i have shorted him, he lets me know. there is alot of intelligent sharing ppl here, no one will lead you wrong

i have started using the target command and redlight at stairs. flash it at the top of the stair and give target command. kind of a plyometrics excersice. he jumps/srpints up the stairs. then a reinorcing recall/come command. sit and the bottom and have him facing the stair and start over again. i tried it today for a short period of time, wow he loved it barking and charging the stair. i have to feel a boundary for it though. davidfitness83 gave me the idea using treats, but onyx didnt go for it. but i found something that he did find drive for, a red light laser

When I started Riley out on the Springpole at 6 months I left it low enough all four paws touched the ground and as she got older I rose it up.

(This is My newest pup on the Springpole the day I got her. she spazzed out and started attacking it. we were trying to get Peaches interested so it was low to begin with but anyways...it is a good example of how low i start it out at an also a BAD example of where to hang it too)

i agree the lower the lure the better off. onyx on the other hand flys thru the air to get to the lure. and he usually grabs it to the point of him dangling or his rear feet barely touching. but he will only get on it if i am exciting the work.
