Walking a puppy

Rocky is 3 months plus old. Can you walk a dog that age to much?
Longest walk so far is about 1 hour. We go up to the local park and it's pretty flat for the most part. There are some decent hills on the path at first, but we are going at a very easy pace.

Thanks
Mark S.

Re: Walking a puppy

Sure can. It's the running and jumping you should probably limit because his little bones are still growing.

Re: Walking a puppy

The more the walk is on soft grass, the longer I think you can go. If it's all concrete then it's a little harder on them but it still sounds like its ok.
