TigervTeMar my guy is 12 weeks and he walks about 600m several times a day. a person posted on another thread that they jogged their 12 wk puppy for 5 min, walked for 2, and then jogged again for 5 and the animal was exhausted. my guy sprints when he wants to for about 20m and then stops. so let him set the pace and like the other ppl said he'll let you know when he's had enough.

enjoy, I love walking my puppy

Harry and Lola If you have to walk him on lead, watch closely as he will tell you he has had enough, once he sits or wants to lay down then it is time to stop. Then you will have to decide whether you want to carry him back home, rest for a while then see if he is able to walk home or phone your other half to collect you with the car! Been there done that.

coulter He will let you know when he's had enough walking. I'd be more worried about keeping him sage and healthy since he hasn't had all of his shots yet.

walking12 week old puppy

I know a puppy shouldn't be exercised too much. But I'd like to take my 12 week old old on walks to release his extra energy. What's the max distance a pup this age can walk without worry of injury on growing joints?
