It is gorgeous out today!, yay for spring!. It's in the upper 20's no winds, bright and sunny. Took Josie out for a stroll and we went into a vacant dead end dirt road and did some off leash training with toys. I ended up walking her a mile after i did off leash training and play with her.I wanted go for two miles, it looked like she could go further but i don't want to stress her joints.

How far can i go with a 9 month old pup? can i keep going if she still wants to?.

When she matures and does well with high distractions what do you guys think about roller blading with the dog?.

Don't know about the other stuff but the "roller blading with dogs part" makes me think your very brave :tongue:

As long as she's willing and you aren't forcing her, go as far as you want.
That's what I say, specially if it's off leash cause they can completely pace themselves with running, walking, sitting and waiting for you to catch up.

My puppies were easily doing 2+ miles by 16 weeks....so you are good to go as long as you keep them lean and conditioned.
