    DefaultLab puppy out of breath easily

    I have a 15 week old English Lab that seems to get out of breath when we play with her and her toys. It seems to take her a long time to catch her breath after 15-20 minutes of hard playing. Last night it took almost an hour for her breathing to return to normal.

    The vet has not observed anything odd...should I bring this to their attention?

    I had a field lab for 12 years and I do not remember him ever getting winded, but maybe I do not remember his younger days as well as I think I do.

    Is it hot/humid where you are? If you ever want to bring an at-home behavior to a vet's attention, take a video to show him/her. You should ask the vet about shortness of breath.

    No, the weather is perfect and a lot of this happens indoors. Thanks for the video tip...good idea.

    What do you mean by 'hard playing'? Maybe it's just too much for a 15 week old.

    Tone it down a notch. Dogs like to play and will often keep doing so as long as their best buddy does so. 15 weeks is still very young. If puppy is getting tired, stop at the 1st sign of really getting pooped, take a short break and then play again. Don't wait until puppy is really laboring.
