I found playing fetch was allot of fun with Dexter. He LOVED it. He would chase that ball until he got tired and took a break. The only problem was I had to make sure I didnt throw it too far because he would race for it and being clumsy he would sometimes actually flip over and roll when he reached for the ball. Scary. He is much less clumsy now at 8 mths.

My last dog, a Sheltie, would play fetch until he dropped, Walter prefers "keep away" which results in me getting more exercise than him, so we have put the ball away and will try to lean fetch again in the spring. He also went through a leggy, clumsy phase : )

Thanks
Unrelated to walking (thanks for the question though - helpful to me), but I LOVE Harper's haircut! So cute. Are you planning to keep the body long and face shorter? We would love to keep Wade's hair a little longer but we know it is more work when it comes to taming mats/brushing. If it ends up being too much trouble we plan to shave him down to all one uniform length.

Oh gosh so sorry for the late reply :/

@meridian - my mum has groomed dogs for ages and is a bit of a perfectionist so when she grooms her i get into big trouble with tangles in her coat. We decided to keep her coat long and face and feet trimmed. Sort of a long lamb clip its a big job, 4 hours with washing,drying,clipping a scissoring but the end result is really nice

I agree with FrankGrimes. I have a 4-month old mini that is very high energy. We live in a condo, so not a lot of running room. I've got her enrolled in a puppy kindergarten class starting Jan 11, but until then, I'm on my own, so to speak. We walk at least an hour twice a day...once in the morning after breakfast and once in the late afternoon before dinner. I couldn't deal with this dog's energy any other way. She never tires on these walks. Quite the opposite. I'm the one that's tired...whew! We play fetch the plush toy inside and "chase the cat," but she only really calms down after a walk. She gets her rabies shot next week and I can't wait to take her to the beach dog park where dogs have to be on-leash, but I think this will be good for her. I love this girl, but she wears me out!!!
