I always try to wait the 2 hours, just to be safe if they are going to be running around. People differ though but I would rather hang on a little bit than risk bloat and all the trauma that would bring.

I won't exercise an hour bpth sides of eating and touch wood have had no problems with this. Suppose it would also depend on the size of meal.

Re: How long after feeding can I walk my dog?


Thanks guys. Her breakfast was only a small cup of kibble and some mousse coz she's having 4 meals a day now (just to build her up again after her spey!), and it's almost been 1 1/2 hours, so considering my walk will be slow for another half hour before she will run a bit, I could be safe then?! You know what a worrier I am!!

Hi Aitch,

With Sasha I usually walk her first so she builds up an appetite (not that she needs it) then feed her about 1/2 hour after. It's something I've done ever since I've had her and fingers crossed we have never had any problems.

I would say she will be fine

Or moreso, I would feel comfortable exercising at this point

I usually give it an hour before exercise (or an hour after), and have never had a problem (fingers crossed!).

Hooray - I am finally getting out for a decent walk later. Hubby has promised to dig out the track and hopefully the snow plough will have been down the road so I can get off the hill and down to some woods. Really excited

Re: How long after feeding can I walk my dog?


Thanks for the input, I didn't know because like you Shane I have always done the exercise bit first, but at the moment, without the car, I just do a garden play at 7.30, fed them at 9 and go out for this second walk after feeding.

We walked slowly, and it took half an hour to get up to the green, we walked with a little 18 week old cocker spaniel, awwww, sooooo cute, and they had a good old play on the green, the poor thing was buried in all that snow up there too, good job it was a black one!!

Been home about 15 mins and breathing is totally normal, she's zonked out on her side, so I don't think I'll have a problem, and then it'll be lunchtime! Thanks again, really appreciated knowing this for future reference

Re: How long after feeding can I walk my dog?


I wouldnt go under the hour long rule, but if you can give it an extra 15/30 mins great,

it must be a pain though working it out round 4 meals a day again, thats giving you a min of 8 hours round feeding that you cant walk her !eek! with so little day light on the go just now I bet your really piffed off

poss you could drop her to 3 meals, that would make life a bit better
