Apply similar rules to your dogs: Wait 30 minutes after a walk to feed them and at least an hour after feeding to walk them.

dogs who exercise before or after eating can develop bloat.

Mostly a problem with large breed dogs, bloat is a digestive problem that causes the stomach to blow up like a balloon.

Perhaps the best way to stop the problem is through training and environmental management methods, including:

  1. Keep the dog's living area clean, including the yard, so there will be no poops for him to pick up.
  2. Cat owners should keep that litter box clean or out of the dog's reach.

How long do I wait before taking my puppy outside? Vets recommend waiting until 10-14 days after your puppy's last vaccination booster – usually at around 14–16 weeks of age – before introducing them to the wonders of local parks, beaches and walking trails.

✔️

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.

Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.

Step 1: Training Your Dog to Walk on a Leash

  1. Introduce him to the collar or harness and leash.
  2. Teach a cue.
  3. Make him come to you.
  4. Practice inside.
  5. Take it outside.
  6. If he pulls: If your dog starts pulling in the other direction, turn yourself into "a tree."

Do-it-yourself suggestions to help you stop your dog from eating his own poop include:

  1. Coat stools with hot sauce or lemon juice. Add a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin to his food bowl each day.
  2. Add meat tenderizer to your dog's food (it will make the dog waste taste VERY bad).
  3. Keep waste picked up on a regular basis.

It's good to lean on the side of caution and not overdo it with a puppy's exercise.

But you should be safe walking your 10 week old puppy for 30 minutes at least once a day, for example.

A half-hour is a safe distance for most puppies at 8 weeks, 10 weeks, 16 weeks, etc.
