My Aussie was just currently diagnosed with moderate dysplasia, and I noticed it since I am in school to be a vet tech. I have taken many steps to research all I can, along with talking to my very helpful vet, on how to help my almost 2yr old female not be in so much pain. Hip/Joint supplements and moderate excercising helps. I take my girl on 20 minute walks 2x a day. I would do a lot of research based upon how severe the condition is. My vet told me the more toned and in shape the back legs are the better.

I am just starting out with my weightloss journey, and I would like to help my dog release some of her herding dog energy. She just turned 1 in January, she is a working line Aussie who weighs around 35-40 lbs. When we go to dog park she seems to be able to run circles around most of the dogs there all day. I would only start out doing at least a mile or so a day and work up. I just dont want to over work her. Please help!
