Jogging/running with my Amstaff
My one yr old AmStaff is great and very playful. I live on a farm and she gets plenty of exercise. I have taken her out jogging twice for about 40 min and she gets really tired. I live in Costa Rica where it is hot and humid all the time. I was wondering how long is it healthy/safe to take her.
The next time you take your Amstaff to the vet, ask for his or her recommendation based on your dog's weight, overall health and the climate in which you live. I've never seen anything published as far as a benchmark. And, that is likely because there are so many variables that can affect your girl's stamina.
I have seen it recommended to start out slowly and build up to longer periods. So, if she seems really exhausted, you might want to back off the amount of time and work your way back up. Of course, be sure you have plenty of fresh water on hand for you and your dog.
Since I'm not a jogger myself, hopefully others who do jog with their pitties will chime in.
