I try to keep mine in fairly good condition most of the year. It is nice to know if they bump something up accidentally out of season I’m not overly worried about injury. I must admit I struggle keeping weight on my little dog in the winter when his work load is fairly high. Iv also noticed that he definitely runs better if he is on the lean side. Just seems that bit sharper. My first running dog so deffo still learning. Few pics of him at different weights. I’m also aware he looks under weight in the top pic. Had a spell where he wouldn’t hold any weight at all. Cheers

I keep em reasonably fit all year so no worry about rhabdomyolysis etc if they get a bit of a runner early in the season 😉.  Remember it takes at least 10 weeks for bone and tendons to adapt after a lay off.

Once they come out of season in spring  build up to an average of about 10 to 15 gallops on a half hour beach walk a couple of times a week.  Run with me 2 to 3 times a week, mainly off lead so usually get a few gallops in, mooch in the woods etc once a week plus twice daily park and they'll be ready for the winter. Then just fine tuning them on the  lamp. 

One of multiple gallops on a walk. Cool down in the pools and then go again and again and again.......

I've always kept myself and the dogs fit, just seems common sense. They carry a little extra weight in the  summer but other than that there's not a great deal of difference at any time of year.
