oh yes, im sure that will go over well in court. "sorry my dog attacked you when YOU CAME INTO MY HOUSE AT NIGHT ROBBING ME".

anyways, how long does it take you guys to start to see results (in means of body composition). I know it depends on how much you train, diet...etc just wanted to get some ideas.

Not only does it depend on the amount of training and diet, but it also depends on the intensity, the type of conditioning you're doing, as well as the dog's individual genetics. Do you have a goal in mind, like how much weight you're trying to add on or take off in the process? What type of work/conditioning are you doing with your dog? What are you feeding? What's your regimen like? All these things play a key role in the ability to give a roundabout answer. Again, we can't necessarily give a definite answer, as every dog is different, just like the human's body is different when undergoing a process like this. Maybe post up some before and after pictures, with details like starting weight, diet, what workout you do on what day, etc., and we'll be able to better assist you.

thanks for the reply!

Here is what i am doing right now

Monday - long walk day. This is usually about 2 miles in the morning followed by 3/4 of a mile of running/fast walking (intervals) in the evening/night

Tuesday - "pull day" - Tug of war, spring pole, and pulling a milk jug half full of rocks at the field near my house for about 20 minutes.

Wednesday - Obedience/cardio day - Obedience is focused on during a 1 mile walk in the morning followed by random times throughout the day in the backyard as well as in the house. The cardio is the flirt pole for about 30 minutes total during the day. I have two flirt poles. one for chasing (running) and another for jumping.

Thursday - OFF day - a 3/4 mile slow walk

Friday - The 4 day routine starts over with Mondays workout.

On The weekend, if I have the opportunity to take her to the dog park to teach obedience (all on leash with some off leash once she calms down) or going to the lake to swim I will do this instead to mix it up and keep her interested in training. I know dog parks arent recommended if you have a dog like this but I find it a great place to work on obedience when there are many distractions, different smells...etc.

As for food, right now I am feeding blue buffalo wilderness 2-2 1/2 cups / day. She also gets eggs and chicken about every other day. at the vet about 2 weeks ago, she weighed 58 pounds but now I have started to condition her and it is evident she is starting to lose fat. I would LOVE for her to be a rock solid 60 pounds but understand that may not be achievable.

around the time of the vet visit, her leg muscles are very prominent. Her ribs do not show unless she turns her body a certain way. Now her upper back,legs,ribs are slowly coming through. Just trying to make sure I am not missing anything. I know my food choice isnt the best but I have so much blue buffalo right now because my friend works at a feed store that i dont want to waste it. id rather use it. i understand Evo and stuff like that is better and maybe I will use that in the future.


Edit: forgot to mention. She doesnt have the body structure to be bulky so I thought rather than trying to make her that way, just work with what she has. Get her very lean and muscular.

I think it's great that you offer your dog a variety of activities.

But to be honest, that exercise regimen isn't going to give you a "conditioned" dog. Obviously, every dog is an individual and has different energy needs but... IMO, that's a good routine maybe for maintaining a healthy pet weight but... That's about it.

My dog isn't "conditioned" by any means, but that schedule would NOT be enough work to keep him sane.

How is she after the day's activities? Does she seem energetic still? Completely wiped out?

what would you suggest? Once my ligaments heal from my ankle I am going to be running her. I cant afford a mill right now. She seems tired for 30 minutes then ready to go again. The day after she is still energetic. I just started this about 2 weeks ago. I didnt want to start off by really pushing her. Have to get her in shape before the hard work begins.

What is your routine?

edit: She spends probably two hours a day playing with my other dog in the yard wrestling, chasing each other...etc

We don't have a set routine we adhere to. It varies by day. But for example...

Yesterday we did half an hour of flirt pole and then had flyball for an hour an a half.
The day before, we went on an 8-mile walk and then spent an hour practicing at the dock (swimming/jumping).
We're about to hit the road right now for a state park and a 12 mile hike.
This weekend, we're doing 3 days of Dock Dogs trials.
We have coursing practice next week.

So... we just mix things up a lot. And we're involved in quite a few activities so that helps add variety. Biking with your dog is also a great way to run them without having to run yourself... Ha, which is right up my alley.

My dog. Not "conditioned", but lean and toned:
