I have taken a couple short ~2mi. hikes with Tucker, who just turned 4mos (18wks today). This fall we plan on doing a bit more serious hiking...nothing crazy but maybe all day hikes with plenty of rest breaks).
Just looking for some input on how much is too much for him now, and in the coming months. We will be sticking to trails with decent footing, but there are always sticky spots and streams to cross. The small hikes we've been on haven't phased him energy-wise as he always bounces back to the car ready for more, but obviously I can't trust him to tell me when its too much for his developing body. Also any other advice on acclimating him to hiking? He is very well-behaved for his age (as a proud, bragging mom
) but I'm fairly new to serious hiking myself so any information is greatly appreciated!
Any advice/input? Thanks in advance
