I have a very energetic dog, and we got to a few parks around our area.

 


There are some areas where she runs off with other dogs and to chase rabbits etc..

 

 

 

Would be great to see where she goes,  sometimes it takes a while for her to get back to me, most of the time she turns her ears off.

My dog George NEEEEEEEEDS this!  He's 6 months old, and when he was 4 months in December he injured his back left leg because of a growth plate breaking away in his knee.  His leg was completely lame, like completely - lift it up, drop it, it just hung around loosely.  He was very close to needing surgery to fix it, but we ended up having him on strict crate rest for about 6 weeks over Christmas/January which was torturous for everyone.  He was stuck in the corner of the lounge in his crate for all our family get together's over the holidays.  It was pretty brutal seeing him stuck in there and desperately wanting to get out and play with us.  But it worked, he's almost back to normal and running around like a terrorist again, and best of all he didn't need any surgery.  The only problem is he put on about 2.5kg being stuck in the crate!  So now we need to seriously exercise and diet him to get him back to normal.  This would be hugely helpful in his rehab :)  

 

Here he is playing "at the beach" while he was injured.  My wife brought the beach home to him.  He loved it!

 

 

Here he is in one of the few respites from his crate when he was patient enough to lie on my lap.  They were few and far between.  Any time he got out of the crate he wanted to RUN!

 

 

And here he is this weekend, mostly all healed and able to jump and and down from the couch, which is not ideal.

This little guy is arriving to our family later this month. So, no funny stories as yet but I'm absolutely confident he'll be full of mischief and what better than an activity tracker to be able to calculate the ratio of activity to damage (smaller numbers means he's mastering efficiency - more mess, less effort!!).

 

His breeder is currently training him to become a diabetic-alert dog by having him sniff samples and associate that with reward - mother's milk in the first instance and then other puppy-friendly treats once he is on solids. As well as being a source of mischief and family joy, his real job will be to alert me to hypoglycemic events.

This is Ruby. She could well be related to the dog in the competition picture.

 

Ruby isn't very sharp but she has a lot of attitude. If there is a chance to get out the door she will bolt and before you know it she is half a km up the road. Fortunately she does come back. My daughter lives next door and until she was about 18 months she would manage to race out through her cat door. Fortunately as she got to full size she got stuck in it twice and learned that this was no longer an option. I wish I had thought of getting a pic of her, half in and half out the door, but between the laughter and rescuing her, I missed the opportunity. 

 

She used to bark a lot (I think she likes the sound) and we were worried about the neighbors getting angry after a few comments over the fence so we got her a bark collar. We felt mean though and ended up taking it off again. She likes to assert herself with a bark whenever she hears another dog bark, although she's a chicken at heart.

 

It would be great to have an idea of what she gets up to as far as barking and exercise with the dogs next door.

He has three modes:

 

sleeping

 

eating

 

 

and chasing motorbikes along the fence. Considering he has to run 50 metres to the fence and he will happily run another 50 metres along the fence to 'chase away the nasty bike', I'm curious as to how much he runs in a day. This will certainly fill my knowledge gap.
