    Jumping, weight training. All bad for young dogs. We know this. Its a given.
    My dogs however had not read this particular piece of health advice, and would climb trees and walls, and jump off over things.
    Play tug of war with entire doors someone had left in the sea, or a tracktor tire that is massive, gets moved around our garden frequently.

    Sometimes, you have to hold em back. Or they'll be up to allsorts that are not good for them, a bit like us humans really eh?

    Thanks Bernie

    Well i caught up with some staffy owners - they said do it when she is 12 months or 14 months old so I won't destroy her joints - they also advise just play a little bit of tag of war, running, walking and do cart pulling "12 months" then when she is old enough start training light weight then gradually increase weight

    Well you can start the obedience...make them listen to the word left, right, back-up (peep peep LOL), wait and such. i do this with all my dogs. they know the word to it from very early on. Makes it easier later when you are in harness.

    An obdient dog makes it fun....if they have no obedience it can be a disaster......

    sounds like you are going to have one happy dog rayzor!

    I was posting elsewhere, and came to add that you can use large logs and have your dog retrieve it. As the dog cannot lift the log, it must use its legs to roll it. Its very heavy, and builds front leg muscles and back. As opposed to most weight stuff being for the chest/neck.

    Our rottie x bordeaux looks like a gym junkie on this.
