I alternate training, obstacle course, playing fetch, lure chasing. When Halo finally refuses to chase or fetch I do another 3 commands, then he's out for a good 4 hours when I send him to his crate.

Quote from the puppy guide
The amount of exercise needed for a puppy will depend on her age and the breed - whether it is an active breed or less active breed.
Puppies can develop hip and joint problems when they are older if they are over walked as puppies.
To calculate a very general guideline for walking, walk the pup for 5 minutes for every month of its age. For example a 4 month old puppy will be 5 minutes X 4 months, which equals 20 minutes.
See how Lola reacts during and after walks - if she seems to get very tired and lags behind it is probably too much for her. If, however, she is very active on the walk and at home then she may need a little more.

This is very helpful! Thank you!

Oih I can't think of anyway to tire Nata out. I've done training, playing (with me and with Kryesor), kongs and balls with yummy treats inside them, long walks (which by the way she is leading and never seem to lag behind.) And than there is the long running and romping around. It seems the only time she will stop is when I put her in her crate for the night. (than she is out.) I guess that she makes herself so excited to not miss a thing that she fights her tiredness? Once I make her settle down, she will be out. (Weather in her crate or on the couch.)
