Question:

: Hello.
: I don't really have a problem. I just want to see
: my JRT to rise weight a little bit. He always has been slim, but I would like to see him a little more strong. He 's very well fed. Thanks for all.

Hi Daniel,

The best way to strengthen your JRT is to give him good exercise daily. This will help to build lean muscle mass and keep him toned.

It's not hard to do, it just takes time on your part to make sure he's getting enough hard exercise.

Take him out with a tennis ball and have him chase and fetch it. Remember though, if he's been a couch potato to gradually get him into a routine. Just like us humans, any type of physical exercise should be increased gradually so muscles don't get sore or your dog gets too exhausted. These dogs will go until they drop, so it's up to you to pace him.

Regards,
Marie
