Wintertime is such a challenge. My dog and I are both ready for warm weather and longer walks.

This is something that is very important keeping your dog fit over the winter. My dog is a performance dog and we take our training and agility competing inside for the winter and snow months because of safety. It is still a big adjustment going from grass running to sand running. The cold months are great for working on some of the problem areas. My dogs loves the snow and loves to run in the snow but you cannot do contacts outside safely with ice and snow.

Haha I have a yellow Lab that LOVES the winter! It just makes it a little mpore challenging for her to find her ball. I think that she prefers the winter time. I take her to a big open field and let her run off-leash. She bucks like a horse and runs around and we play fetch. She likes running and sliding up and down the hill.

Any kind of exercise that works for your dog is great. It is sad to know that people come and go as they're pleased, while their dogs are stuck in the house or yard all day without been walked or exercised.

Treadmills can be found cheap on craigslist if consistant. I bought one for my labs last fall for 40 bucks. It was a great investment my dogs do dock jumping for UAD and my girl is jumping 23ft 10 inches. She has started the season in excellent shape. If your dog is big enought try ski jouring and remember to also keep a proper diet throughout the winter
