    Do any sort of physical activity...
    Apart from the obvious...Walking :rolleyes:
    I mean like Biking, Roller blading, jogging, skate, lool
    I was thinking of rollerblading with my dogs, but there is so many fields around here i would constantly be taking them off!
    So what do you with your dog?

    I try and fit in a bit of training along the way, heelwork, recalls being the obvious two. But other stuff, chucking out a ball as a blind and then lining them up and sending them out to find it. They both love jumping as well, particularly Tau, so I can send them over things, and Tau will even 'get up' as an alternative, so I can send her to get up onto a park bench for example, from a distance. They both love just using their brains, although not overly blessed with a huge amount of them :D:D:D

    Dad goes out and does this with his gundogs, although he goes to his rabbit pen a lot to work with live game (don't worry no rabbits are killed)

    I run with Bess sometimes, but i am a lazy bugga and stop after about 10 mins and walk the rest ;)

    I jog with them it saves walking for 2 hours to try and burn off all the energy not so much these days but I have an excuse. They also do some jumping along the way.

    Mine would kill me if i ever tried anything like that. I used to go power walking, but ended up almost breaking my ankle when Oscar decided to make a beeline to something that interested him.

    Plus it took me about 3 years to train Oscar that chasing joggers, cyclist, skateboarders and rollerskaters isnt acutally a good thing.
    He still gets really exicted if he sees a skateboard.

    i used to take mine on a bike ride but Chase runs off the lead and he started being a bit disobidient whilst out and i was worried he would run into a road.
    Brody loves it though need to start doing it again.

    I run with my dogs. I occasionally take them on the bike, but the trouble is if they see something to chase, then I end up over the handle bars and on the floor! It is great if you can do it off lead. It puts you at a massive advantage over your dog if you can be faster!
