Bella is 1/4 Iggy, but looks 1/2 Iggy with her long, muscular legs. We've tried walking her, but I don't think it's enough b/c when she's off leash, she's running laps around the yard outside.

She's abt 7 months old. Do y'all walk your Iggies? If so, how much is sufficient? Should I be running with her instead?

IGs love to be active, if a walk leavs your girl wanting more, I find a play session with another dog, or a romp session in the yard is a great form of excercise and fun for them! This gives them the freedom to run as much as they want - and IGs LOVE to run!!!

Also, you are invited to visit www.IGWhispers.com where a whole lot of friently folks would love to share IG information with you and hear about your little Iggy mix girl!

LONG walks, chase or sparring with them on the floor or in the yard, roller-blading, jogging, or get one of those laser light beams and they will chase that for ever!

We do the long walks, chase/sparring and the laser beam (bad knees and such so can't do the others- but friend of mine does).
