Re: Will booting my GSP cause him to overheat

I don't think anyone can definitely say whether it is a good idea or a bad idea. Sounds like you keep a close eye on your dog during the run. Personally I'd probably use the duct tape unless I saw it was causing harm.

1. There is no age for being "broke". It depends on the dog; every dog is different. For me, when the dog who has been chasing birds, figuring out he/she can't catch them , starts to hesitate /flash point, it is ready to be broke.
