How long do you wait to take your dog running after they eat?

I heard it can twist their stomachs if they exercise right after they eat. How long should I wait?

  • Well thanks, my dog has trouble eating her kibbles these days. She's a lab, and my husband just left for Iraq and I know that she knows this. She's a little depressed, and so today she surprisingly ate her kibbles in the morning, for once! So i'm wondering HOW long i need to wait after she eats!

  • i'd give her atleast an hour, but i reccomend exercising her first then feeding, that works well for my dog, she's tired and hungry so she eats better then, she had a problem not eating her food either until i started feeding her after our walks GL
