Default Pavement Walks

Is a 1.5 mile walk on the street too much for a 6 month old puppy. I'm talking about hip/joint development and future problems.

Thanks

I do not think so, walking is great..it is the running and stairs and jumping people often worry about.

Keep an eye on the pads on the bottom of the feet.

Thanks. The only running he does is in my yard chasing after a stuffy on a string.

I do about that with my 6 month old a day. Only I break it up into two 1 mile walk.
My breeder was fine with this when I told him
