conditioning my dog... any advice??

ok well i have a question on conditioning Couger... i started working on him at 5months with walks/jogs and a flirt pole but he doesnt look like most of your pups at 9months... i was looking around and saw afew pictures of lilbit when she was 9months and man does she look great!!!! heres what i been doing about almost every day except saturday and sunday...

work the flirt pole for 10mins
go for a 2mile walk/speedwalk
give couger water
work the flirt pole again for 15-25mins
play with the hoses to cool him off while still exercising him for 10mins
flirt pole for another 10mins
tug of war for 10mins
rest for 30mins
bike ride for 10-15mins
feed him after 20mins of workout... about 4cups... i feed him once a day excluding his morning chicken necks...

i tried spring pole but he doesnt like ropes... i used Remington Canvas Training Dummy and he loves them but i just dont think its worth $6 for 6mins... i went through 4already and they dont last more then 10min max each... any help??? ill post new pictures when i get a chance to take some... he still looks like this older photo

Marty said that Lil Bit wasn't worked into that shape. She was genetically that fit. Your pup appears to have a heavier build, and is probably not bred the same as Lil Bit. IMO, you're over-working your puppy. And feeding one huge meal a day isn't the best thing either. Smaller meals at least 2 times a day. It enables him to use his food more effectively. If you look at human athletes and people trying to lose weight, they don't sit down to one massive meal. They have snacks and small meals 4, 5, 6 times a day. And give him some time to mature before you start working him so much.

yeah i try not to over work him but he just seems to want to keep going and going... he loves to go on jogs/bike rides and the first picture is him after 15mins of flirt pole... thats a picture of him trying to get at it still after i put it up there where he cant reach it....lol he just loves to play and keep going... ill cut down the feeding load and see how it works... thanks for the advice though... i didnt think i was over working as i though a good amount of walks was good for him and his energy... flirt pole is his #1 toy

Some have said a leather hide on the flirt pole, I use Katies Bumper on my spring pole, its a ghetto one, just a bungee cord on an old cement clothes line, but keeps my boy occupied for a long time and I don't have any trees in my yard to attach something to. Does the trick. I love the Katies bumper we use. for tug and on the flirt pole... Katie S Bumpers Sq2 Super Sqwuggie Fire Hose Bumpers Squeak and Tug Toy - 3 Squeakers

I am sure anything you attach would work, at least for my boy...

i have a stuff bull thats made some tuff cloth for my flirt pole and my spring pole i had something like what u suggested but didnt last long... if it just sits where he can stand he doesnt really like to play with it... if he hangs above the ground he will keep going after it... usually my toys dont last long because hes a good weight

For bait, I cut the legs off my old dickies work pants and they seem to last fairly long. I would try using pant legs from old jeans or work pants.

imo that is way too much work for a pup whos bones/joints havent fully set and the tendons havent developed the stregnth for that much work.

You will have that pup for 10-14 years why risk ruining it at less than a year
let your pup be a pup

I dont work pups, I hand walk, play at the lake,and introduce them to the flirt/spring poles ect.. for short periods to establish a familuarity for the work they will do when older.
If not having the tightest pup at a show means We take a red instead of blue ribbion thats fine, well take them in the adult class

to you other questions
I feed 3 times a day till 6mo then 2 tims a day from then on
and use hides on the spring/flirt poles
