|Woo, then Sable should be fine =D I thought it was cute when she would sit sideways, like with one leg almost under her. She's 4 months old now, and she reminds me of a child, if she's sitting she'll shift and fidget around if she's bored or doesn't want to sit anymore.
I just found it really odd. I'm sure he said it because he was concerned, he really is a nice guy, but he also a one breed kind of guy. Every dog he has ever had is either German Shepherd or a mix that is mostly Shepherd, who tend to be more 'prone' to hip problems. All the same he really sounded like he knew what he was talking about, but it didn't sound right to me. So rather than changing what I was doing with Sable I figured double checking was the best idea.
As for her nails, any time she runs she's either in the yard, or on some kind of dirt/mulch. Once in a while we will jog on the street but its either up the street or down. Today I took her to the dog park to run around since she's big enough and has all of her shots.
She had a blast, ran around, played with all of the dogs. Had a small mishap when another dog slid into her and she hit the elevated water bowl :'< but she was fine and got back up to play after she let me fuss over her. It was a nice place to let her do her running.
Truth be told, my only concern is overworking her joints but I don't think I do that. She goes on at least 2 walks a day, usually 30 minutes each time. And short around the block to go potty walks. So I'm thinking 45-60 minutes to run about and play with other dogs will be fine, I only be going every day, maybe every other or every two days will do her good though.
I'm actually really happy with her temperament to other dogs and people, she's so friendly though I felt her initial socialization was lacking. I was very picky for a while, until about two weeks ago, actually, for only played with dogs I knew and trusted.
Anywhozzel, thanks Fritz and Bella =) The two of you were very helpful, I'm glad I decided to double check like always!
A lot of my neighbors really ARE clueless. @.@
