    If your dog likes to the water, swimming is good pre-season excercise because the dog won't overheat in the water. Otherwise, in warm weather you should confine your dog's runs to early morning or late in the day and be sure there's plenty of water available.

      If you can take them teal hunting, that is great conditioning. The teal season usually arrives before pheasant season and they can stay cool in the water. Of course this presumes your dog can swim. I hunted both with a lab and she got plenty of exercise doing this and it really got her in the mood to hunt. Also, make sure your dog stays outdoors so their sense of smell is not corrupted by being in the house. If you can't hunt, at least make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise.

        I would go with swimming, it is easier on the joints and you don't have to worry about your dog overheating. On top of that it's great exersize for you too.
