It’s Friday so what’s been sent for today?

An interesting article about age appropriate exercise related to growth plates in puppies, achrondroplasics aren’t included specifically but it’s worth a read.

  1. I think the Puppy Culture exercise chart is a great resource to which breeders can direct their puppy people:

    The Kennel Club’s advice is, “A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e. 15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.”

    In line with the KC’s advice of “up to twice a day”, the Lifetime Health Record (LHR) has been updated:
