How much execise for a 5 month old GS puppy

Hi all i am new to this forum, so hope i have posted in the right place.

I Have a 5 month old Female GS, I have been having lots of conflicting advice as to how much exercise she should be having.
Some say she should not be going for walk at all until she is 8 months as she is growing and walking can damage her joints and that she should have enough exercise from being free in the house.
Others tell me she should be getting at least a good 30 minutes walk twice a day.

I have had GS's before and have not had good results on their hip scores and just want to make sure i am doing it correct.
I hate to think it was something i am doing wrong.

Would be grateful for any advise.

Cheers Bennyhill
