    It's been 11 days since she was spayed, she has no sutures (they used glue), she seems ready to play. But I don't know when exactly I should start letting her run around?

    We have a 5 month old (6 months on the 12th) pit/husky mix who is chowing down at an alarming rate! We are feeding the best we can afford (3 star on the dogfoodadvisor website). The food is 500 calories a cup and we have to feed him 5 cups a day to keep weight on him. He is nice and lean right...

    My new pup is a high energy guy. That's part of the reason I chose him, as I run every day and I know he'll make a good running buddy. His paws, however, are currently preventing him from getting the exercise he needs. Since he was in the shelter for so long in a smooth-floored kennel or out in...

    Hi, Jade turned 10 months on the 2nd. I had been walking her but I have hurt my back. We have a big back yard she plays in. Is that enough exercise for her until my back gets better? I was taking her to the park but she has picked up back habits from other dogs and I probably won't take her...

    My girl is 17 months and one day while playing in the uneven back yard hurt her hind leg. She was not putting too much pressure on it, at time not putting it down at all. Throughout the day it got better and she seemed to walk normally. After laying for a long periods, and getting back up she...

    Hey guys, My boy is a little over a year and a half. We've had him for almost 3 months and I've been walking him 3 miles everyday for that duration. Unfortunately, this is starting to take a toll on me as I have a bad right big toe (how pathetic lol). Seems ridiculous, but it makes walking...

    As some of you know my dog is still a pup, seven months. He is full of energy! lol. I want to build muscle and keep him healthy but everywhere I read says that you shouldn't run or exercise a dog until they are a year old because their bones are still growing and it can cause damage. True? I...

    I'm just curious what are some good ways to exercise my 8 month old pup in the city. We live in and apartment in Center City, Philadelphia and I could use some advice. I've read enough info on here to know that dog parks aren't a good option; even though Rosey is still very dog-friendly (she's...

    We went out to the stock car/motocross track yesterday, and Bullet was his normal, super-energetic self, so I decided to run him next to our Rzr S (side-by-side) on the stock car track, and it wore him out! He could run 35 mph in the first burst of speed, and ran a steady 20-25 after that...

    Hi guys quick question. Does anyone here have their pits weightpull just for fun and exercise, not for actual competition? I was walking my dog just now and thought it'd be a good workout if he could gradually drag heavier weights on his walks.

    I have a 2 year old staffy, and when he was about 8 months he got into a scuffle with my neighbors (neighbor announced) aggressive Shepard mix. The Shepard was about 14 years old and attached my dog first at he end of my driveway. I was shocked (obviously not fully conscious of he breed gifted...

    I was looking at my pups papers and he has razor edge and gotti in him apparently. But when looking at my friends dog who is a gator pit we noticed my dogs and her teeth are the same. Like they both have what looks like two sets of canine teeth on the top that almost go straight but come to a...
