Good morning all! So I have two dogs that are full puppy and love running all over the yard. That being said, they are starting to make a trail on the edges of the yard by my fence from where they have run down the grass. Any suggestions for how to prevent/repair this?...other than puppy school haha.

Take them for a run; if you don't run, then take it up. Dogs need to run and so do people, we were born to run:)

Excerpt:

The study details various adaptations found in early humans—including fossils of Homo erectus and Homo habilis,—which are required only for running.

These adaptations include long, springlike tendons, such as the Achilles tendon, which store energy and reduce the metabolic costs of running by half. Fossil records suggest the Achilles tendon was absent in Australopithecus.

Likewise, the longitudinal arch of the foot—another well-developed set of springs important to running—appears to have evolved with Homo habilis.
