I have two 1 yo Dackels. They usually go on a 1 mile walk and a half mile walk daily. Since their little legs are working hard at the 3 MPH pace, I think that is probably enough walking for a day. Any suggestions? Should they walk less distance than other breeds? How far do you walk your dog? Thanks.

As long as they don't seem distressed or over exhausted, I'm sure it's fine. Dogs have incredible endurance, even small ones.

My JRT/beagle is only 17 pounds, and she goes on 5+ mile trail rides with me and easily keeps up with the horses the whole time. The other day we were even out for about 4 hours and it was no problem for her. Obviously she's in really good shape, but I don't think you're over doing it.

My beagle/rott goes too and she's about 28 pounds, but runs the entire time, zipping all over the place and probably winds up running 4 times what we ride haha. Doesn't even phase her.
