The summer period, along with an intense workload during the hunt, tires the dog. Managing your dog's exertion levels will enable it to be more efficient during hunting sessions.
S: How should you manage your dogs' outings at the beginning of the season?
D: "I generally prefer to do a few short runs rather than one long one. It's really ideal for the dogs, so they can have recovery time between sessions. It also enables them to stay hydrated. A dog will be more physically efficient with a more evenly distributed workload."
