    DefaultIf you excercise your dog before dinner, what do you do?

    Hello!

    I asked myself, if you walk him in the noon / go to a park etc., what do you do in the evening after he has eaten? Just walk again or wait until the next morning?

    Depends how early I go out. If we got to the dog park in the morning (generally it is past 11am when we leave) or do a very long walk in the morning, that is usually it until later in the evening when we do a walk (maybe 30-45 minutes, depends how we're feeling).

    I don't schedule exercise around eating times. We exercise in the morning either jogging or hiking and in the evening my oldest daughter takes Layla on walks. Layla gets fed when my wife remembers to put her food bowl down.

    Ok. So it is not "bad" to not get out after eating?

    Nope. I feed dinner to Jack after 7pm which is normally after our long walks. He eats and rests before bed. If you do get out after eating, make sure it's an hour or more after eating that your run him.

    We go out in the yard after yeah for sure, but don't always go for a walk per say. Sometimes my pups eat at like 8 or even 9pm so no we don't go out other than potty breaks after that.

    I feed my boys their dinner at 5 and we go for a walk around the block before bed so that they can have a stretch and do their potties. No real exercise, though. We do our big walk/retrieving around mid-day.
