  • how much is too much?

    i really need to know how much is too much exercise! i walk generally 5 miles a day disc golfing, and then all other regular activities everyday. is this over working, underworking, or just about right for danes?

    Depends on how old the dane is and what kind of condition they are in.

      Just like I stated in your last post regarding this:

      its more of the first 18 months of a danes life where you really have to be careful with exercise because their growth plates are still coming together. I think the 2-5 miles will depend on how hot it is outside and the age and activity level of your dog.

      Every evening I go for a 2 mile walk with Jewel, sometimes more sometimes less. During the day we play fetch and work on obedience.

      Some danes need more exercise, some need less. Your question really depends on certain aspects.

            Well since he will be young, you want to keep exercise at a minimum. It's fine to let him have free play where he can run around, or if you want to walk him around your yard to work on obedience. However, no forced exercise for about a year. As he gets older he will probably enjoy going with you.
