How to train a sporting dog

If the dog takes part in various shows, and is used in the service and in sport, so it is a sporting dog. The main criterion is considered endurance of the dog, which has to be trained. What do you need to know during training sporting dogs During the training you need to find a middle ground. It is important not to overload the dog, however, the lack of exercise will not give any results. We need to develop the dog's endurance ​​in the race: gallop and trot. For training of the blood supply, the heart and the lungs, swimming is useful, but the muscular system develops weaker than while the running. You must know that while running, the dog's oxygen energy system begins to work: as it copes with a task to cover the body's need for oxygen, the dog does not experience extreme fatigue. Oxygen enters the muscles and produces carbon dioxide instead. Nevertheless, after a while, there comes another phase - anaerobic, there is not enough oxygen. When the glucose gets into the muscles of the dog, it is converted into lactic acid. At the same time, the dog begins to feel pain in the muscles, and feels tired. Therefore, you must immediately stop the training; otherwise, it may cause complete exhaustion. Recovery occurs within a few days. Therefore, you need to train the dog gradually; thereby increasing the first aerobic phase and you will prevent the exhaustion of the dog during the competitions. With the gradual and intensive activities, the strengthening of the heart and the lungs of the dog begins. Oxygen system is gradually expanding; oxygen is carried to all organs much more intensively. The bone skeleton, tendons and muscles strengthen.
