I agree about trotting, but she's getting winded so easily. She's a good girl and will keep going until I bring her back to a walk, for a while, then when she's had enough, will start backing up when I ask her to go forward! Taking it slow, I've alternated one lap trotting, one walking, if I ask her for more than one lap, she starts to get winded after the second lap.
I don't want to stress her, but I do want her to work out. Am I on the right track while I build her cardiovascular fitness?
