An active dog is a healthy dog. A good way to keep your dog getting the exercise they need is to find some good active dog toys. It probably wouldn t hurt you to get a little more exercise too. The traditional stick or toy thrown and retrieved works as good as anything.

But sometimes owners have a physical limitation or may not be able to get out and even walk their dog Baker Mayfield Limited Jersey , let alone start exercising with them. Have no fear since in recent years dog toy makes have been hard at work with coming up with new active dog toys.

Some are manual, some are automated, but all provide a great way to exercise your dog on a regular basis. We ve done a little research and have some of the most popular active dog toys listed below:

Bubble Machines ? Evidently dogs love to chase bubbles. There are several products that spew bubbles for your dog to chase and pop. These machines are easy and you can even add flavor to the bubbles. They start around $13 and go up to about $30.

Ball Launchers ? These come in all types and shapes. Some are hand operated, some look and perform like a tennis practice ball launcher, some look and work like a sling shot Women's Duke Johnson Jr Jersey , and even tennis racket models. They start at around $10 and go up to $35.

Frisbee Type Toys ? Frisbees have been around forever and there are lots of new types and special feature models now available. Some make noise, flash lights, have streamers, and some are super soft to make it easy on your dog s mouth. These start at about $10 and go to $20.

The good thing about these types of toys is that it helps your dog use his natural skills and burn off some extra energy and calories. Some of these toys require a good amount of space that is free of obstructions and any dangerous terrain. That goes for busy highways or streets too. Always make sure the area is safe for full tilt running and there are no possible manmade dangers.

The drawback with the automated versions is they need batteries. And the ones that make bubbles need a water source close by and some type of soap to make the bubbles. The manual ones are low maintenance and can be used anywhere.

The idea behind any of these toys is to get your dog more active and provide some exercise to help keep the weight down and the muscles toned. Probably doesn t hurt the owner to get out and about too. Both the dog and the owner can participate with many of these toys.

And you can always rely on the good old basic stick to throw and let your dog retrieve. Or even make your own version of the stick with any plastic or wood object from around the house. Our dog loves an old piece of rope that we had left over from a tree swing we made for the kids. Anything that throws easy and the dog can get in his mouth will work. Just make sure there s nothing on the device that will be harmful like paint, splinters Women's Nate Orchard Jersey , or sharp edges.

Active dog toys are great for taking your dog out and getting some exercise for you and the dog. From the most simple stick to any of the newer high tech models, all will get the job done.

NAIROBI, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- More Kenyan track athletes are switching from track to marathon as they grow older while opting for slower events.

The star runners who have announced their intent to scale to the energy-supping 42km race include Kenyans Vivian Cheruiyot formerly of the 5,000m and 10,000m fame Women's Shon Coleman Jersey , Ezekiel Kemboi (3,000m steeplechase) and Britain's Mo Farah (5,000m and 10,000m) among others.

They are following in the footsteps of earlier converts like Paul Tergat, Moses Tanui and Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya; Haile Gebrselassie and Kenenisa Bekele both of Ethiopia; and Shalane Flanagan of the United States - who have all won several elite marathon titles.

Geoffrey Kirui Women's Carl Nassib Jersey , who won the gold medal at the just-concluded World Athletics Championships in London, oscillates between the 10,000m and the marathon event.

"As athletes grow older, their legs give in speedwise especially when faced with younger and more agile runners. The old guards are therefore compelled to scale up to longer races which are slower but require more endurance," 1987 world marathon champion Women's Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , Douglas Wakiihuri told Xinhua on Thursday.

Payout at elite city races is also one factor that compels track athletes to convert to marathon running where appearance fees, prize money and bonuses can jolt one's bank account upwards tremendously.

The prize money for winners of the Boston Marathon which stands at 150,000 U.S. dollars for example, is three times what a runner can make by winning Diamond League final on the track.

New York Marathon organizers dole out 100,000 dollars to the victors. Owing to the dynamism of the event Women's Corey Coleman Jersey , elite marathon runners do only a maximum of two races per year, with the rest of the time spent on training and recovering.

"The two-hour barrier in the marathon seems increasingly surmountable as more and more runners with tremendous pedigree are taking to road running and slowly nudging the marathon clock downwards," Nairobi-based sports scientist Bernard Migo, remarked.

World half marathon silver medalist, Bedan Karoki Women's Zane Gonzalez Jersey , and world cross country champion Geoffrey Kamworor both from Kenya are also heading to the road after their legs can no longer let them keep pace with the nimble upcoming runners that the east African nation churns out with regular consistency.

However, race-switching is not a new found novelty. Czech Emil Zatopek won the 5,000m, 10,000m and marathon races within eight days at the 1952 Olympics.

Frank Shorter from the United States won the marat. Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Authentic Jerseys   Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys   Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys China   Wholesale Jerseys From China   Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys From China   Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Free Shipping
