| | Question: How long should a walk be for a puppy?
I was wondering what's a good distance/length of time to exercise a 15 week old pup. How long do you guys walk your pups?
We've got a 15 week old JRT/Dachshund mix and we walk her at a brisk pace (no running though) for about ½ an hour twice a day. The route we take is roughly a 1 mile circuit, so that's 2 miles a day.
Scarlett is still pretty active when we come back, she's not panting, lagging behind or exhibiting signs of tiredness. Instead, when we get back to our place, she's ready to play more. But then she conks out about 10-15 mins later and naps for hours.
Thanks so much for the replies
