Fitness For Senior Dogs With Arthritis

February 26, 2015

My GBGV Life arthritis in senior dogsIt’s FitDog Friday time and today I’m talking about my senior sister Katie, who has pretty bad arthritis. Katie’s issues with arthritis started probably around the time she was eight years old. The Kuvasz has a long life expectancy for a large breed, 12-14 years, so having issues at just eight was a bit early. Read more…

My GBGV Life messy belly fur at Gramma's houseSaturday, Bailie and I went with Mom to Gramma’s house for a few hours. Katie decided to stay home as her arthritis was bugging her, and she was tired from playing with one of her boyfriends on Friday night. Bailie and I love visiting Gramma, and we really love going for a walk in her neighborhood because it is wooded and full of squirrels! On Friday we got a tiny amount of snow which was melting and making a mess on the streets. Thanks to the mess on the road, I got the new look to my belly fur.

Dogs learn nose work using boxes, ORT (odor recognition tests) are done with boxes, and at Level 1 Nose work trials, the containers used are typically boxes. The boxes used in container searches can really be of any size and shape and can be placed anywhere, not only on the floor. Read more…
