    Great advice!

    Thanks for the responses. They have been very helpful. Im going to talk it over with my vet. I feel certain he will say the exercise is a good idea as long as we dont over do it. I can just see it in my dogs eyes how disappointed he is when i take the pup out for training. It like he is saying give me a chance i can do it to. Ive been your buddy for a long time dont give up on me yet.

    What are you training for,competition or huntn dawgs. If it's competition it would take two years of training and then he'd be 11. Take him out training let him get some excersise and fun.No force fetch. no collar just have fun. And if you do hunt take him out a few times. Just don't have expectations then you won't get upset with him. Guy

    I understand you fully...I hope the vet will give you advice so that your boy will be involved in your training.

    I've got an 11+ year old lab that completed a Master test last weekend and still runs an Amat. stake now and then. We still train a couple of times a week but we are careful on the setups . She is in good shape and as long as she is able and wants to run , she will. Conditioning is important , get them is shape , keep them in shape.
