My average pace is 1.4 mph 8000 steps about 6 miles in about 2.5 hrs granted the cover is rough, briars and brambles, wow 15 miles that is going to be tough def going to try the conditioning training
I dont understand how 2.5 hr of pheasant hunting takes such a toll on him requiring 2 days of recovery but he is a large lab amd runs very hard however I will incorporate conditioning training

It takes about 2 days for him to recover it just the stiffness that is my concern never delt with that b4 but also never hunted with a 95 lb lab

It was 4 ft stuble field and yes damp not foggy thow he is lean for 94 lbs I will stay on it and have water with me at all times, thanks
How is he as a hunter ? Maybe just use him as a working dog just my 2 cents
Yes I was very nervous didnt think he was going to make it, but the water helped just dont understand why this happend in 58 degree weather for only 32 mins waiting get lymes result back
