The real secret to having a fit dog?? making the effort to get them fit. Like anything, you only get out what you put in,Mo farrah dont go 67 miles to the beach once a week and run his bollocks of for a hour, he does it everyday around his place and then turns up for a race.

thank you for this Skycat, very interesting read, what is also important is diet in a running dog, i have a 2 year old 5/8 3/8 Bull X and a year old Saluki Greyhound i walk them 3 times a day whilst working 9-6! i have seen boys run they're dogs whilst riding up farm tracks on a quad, surely that's an accident waiting to happen? i'm using Gain 28 greyhound food at the moment and now and again i buy tripe or chicken mince, can anyone recommend other foods that may be better?

I am new to owning a lurcher only getting one five weeks ago from a rescue centre. I am keen to get him working fit though to be honest I cant see him actually working.

I joined the site to try to find out how to condition a dog and its great that I have stumbled onto this article.

I will be getting this book and also checking the site for other tips. I reckon that those actually using dogs for their intended purpose are the best to ask.

I hope other members who work their dogs dont mind a non-hunting new comer on the site.

The above extract from the book RUNNING DOG MAINTENANCE whetteed my appetite for the book. That and the recommendations from other users meant I couldnt resist buying. There is currently 10 percent off orders if you buy direct from SKYCAT Publications so even more reason to buy .... which is the excuse I will give the wife when the book arrives in the post !

Found this really interesting, being a complete newbie to all this, the article so informative and makes sense, the likes of warming up before exercise, something I would've easily overlooked/thought about...

 

I think I'm going to have to invest in this book...
