This is Levi's exercise.....He chases the poor cat around the house from the time he gets up in the morning until he passes out
Harleigh's not a GSP, but she has the energy as one Anyways, we don't really have a "set" routine. Actually the only thing that is set in stone is our Agility class on Monday's. LOL
During the week I usually try to do walk/jog, some fetching and then mental stimulation. On the weekends I try to do something more "fun" so swimming, hiking, etc., is what I prefer to do. But just as long as she gets some sort of exercise she's good.
Today we went for a swim in the pool & she's fine with that. Swimming is her favorite.

I asked about running Remi at such a young age and was advised that as long as he wasn't running on pavement and constantly pounding his joints everyday, short runs for now would be fine. We run more of a "trail" which is the side of the road as we have no sidewalks. We only go every other day, and on the days he doesn't go for a run he gets some other form of exercise.
As for creating a monster or them dependant on a schedule...I guess it doesn't bother me to have a schedule with them. I'm a detail oreintated person....I do well on a schedule too. My dogs do very well with our schedule....if we happen to miss a day to due to weather or busy schedule...they're fine with it. But, as a whole...I enjoy them pushing me to get outside and we enjoy our time with our dogs doing what they love. My labs push just as hard as Remi to get outside and do "something.....ANYTHING" so I guess I'm used to it!

From what I understand as long as it isn't an everyday thing and as you say on softer surfaces its fine. Its the constant pace that is the issue, again from what I understand.
ha ha yea I'm OK with the monster I created but I whole-heartedly recommend doing the 'brain' work too. It tires them in a whole different way!
That sounds like fun Chris!
We had the day off yesterday and we spent a good portion of it outside doing some yard work. Remi got to spend the day outside chasing the girls and was EXHAUSTED by the time we came in! Here's a picture of him about 3 minutes after we came inside...
The real kicker is that he hadn't even had dinner yet.....I had to wake him up to eat!!
