    No real method to my madness we hand walk,run free in the bush or on the beach.Do some flirt when we get home and spring pole on off days.Of course we like to give the couch a real good work out every day.

    Lol no Elmo my dogs get many days off.What I ment to say was that when not out walking or what ever I will let her out back on the spring pole to burn off some energy.I should have been more clear as Iam not out every day with my dogs.

    Lots of good ideas and feedback for sure. Not too sure I would be willing to try the car thing like butch cass. I could see something going wrong with my luck. I use to have my dogs pull me on sleds when it snowed as a boy....good times.....hard to stop that lil girl once she got going full bore though.lol

    So much stuff to do haha, I'll def agree with the whole be there with them thing. I can already tell my pup jumps higher and pulls harder if im playin with him and not with the spring pole. He's also just getting used to it but still, he tries way harder with me. And hey, im down for burnin some fight myself with some swimming and walkin lol
    But ya i really like to mix it up, i think it's cool if your dog can do everything cuz then, hmmm what do i feel like doing today haha. You can really mix it up and have fun and do dif. stuff everyday.

    i match the treadmill time to that of the roadwork time. I mean if the dog does three miles tread then i walk him three. and so on and so on.
