Mad eats first, and a walk an hour after. I always tell her it's post meal quiet time. The routine started when she was a pup, so now she kinda expects breakfast right after we get up and she's had a pee in the yard.

Sometimes I think I should change the routine, but on the other hand on weekends, after I feed her post meal quiet time often means her going back to bed with me for an hour or so.

Breakfast is always between 5:30 and 6:00

Sadie goes for a walk before eating, which she poos and pees, then again about an hour after she eats we go out again and play.

I guess I need a "neither" or "does not apply to me" choice because I don't walk my dogs and I don't feed them breakfast.

Walk before breakfast (and dinner) We were advised by the vet to allow one hour after feeding before excercise. One of our goldens (now at Rainbow Bridge) got a twisted bowel by excercising after eating and nearly died. If you have a dog with a large chest cavity it can happen. All our dogs now pee and poo them eat and stay quiet for an hour.

Joey eats right after he pees right after he wakes up at 8am, we chill for a bit, he chews on his nylabone or we fetch with a plush toy while im drinking my coffee, then around 9 or 10 we go for our almost hour walk. So hes had time to digest his breakfast!

Chester doesn't go for morning walks. He only goes for walks at night. We'll usually go about half an hour after supper.

Brooks first order of business when we get up in the morning is to head straight to his food dish (do not pass Go do not collect $200!)
Then he wants to go outside into the back yard to look around. The walk is probably an hour or so later.

Do you mean you only feed once a day and the exercise you do with your dogs doesnt involve going on a walk?
