GSP Pointer Panting!!!

Recommended Posts

Question, when I run my dog lately, she starts getting red around the eyes and mouth. Is that normal when they are working really hard?? She's panting pretty darn hard!

I guess that depends on how dang fast and far you run. Remember if you are running on pavement that will make a dog overheat in a hurry since they can only displace heat through feet and mouth.

If your GSP is like any other verstile dog they dont know when to quit themselves. If you see your dog panting heavily you need to let it cool off one way or another.

I could hunt all day long or even play fetch in 100 degree heat and my dogs would go until they killed themselves they just dont know when to quit.

I am all for conditioning and running dogs etc but you have to watch them closely in the heat.

Agreed that you'll have to watch them and tell them when to quit. They have no off switch.

If you feel that his panting comes on after only minimal work or it comes on much earlier than normal during a workout then it may be worth talking with a vet about it to make sure there isn't something else going on.
