No running, no sliding, no stairs, no jumping?

I just read an article from a Vet who writes that GS pups (mine is 9 weeks old) should not run, should not slide on slipper wooden floors, should not go up and down stairs, and should never jump.

I'm kind of horrified because I've been letting her dart around and run while we play with a soccer ball on the grass, run to me from a short distance when I call "COME", and my floors are wooden (so she slips when she's running around excited. Additionally, I was a little terrified when she jumped off a small ledge onto concrete once when I wasn't looking.

What exactly can we do with them? Just walk around the grass over and over again?
