They have had more than enough to rest and recuperate after a long waterfowl season. I am referring to your dog(s). Get them off the couch, out of the bed and back in shape. It is good to let them rest, but now is the time to make sure they don't fall too far behind. Take them on runs, long walks and swims. Keep them fit and they will never let you down. Use this time to work with them on retrieving, etc. 10-15 min sessions is all a well started dog needs to maintain his/her skills. A little bit of effort now, will go a long way this Fall.
