How Much Is Too Much 16 Week Old Pup

Not really conditioning but just general excersize. She is a very active pup loves to play with me in the house and I hand walk her as much as possible some days I have more time than others like yesterday we walked at least 5 miles and she still didnt see like she was ready to stop. She was a little achy last night but first thing this morning she was ready to go again. So just looking for a bit of advice as I dont want to over do it and cause her any undue injurys.
Thanks in advance.

dont excercise your dog until its a year .. minimum I would say a year and a half and always have. Walking your dog, pertaining to your dog isn't laggin behind you more than half the walk be a sign of to much. Dont measure distance right now measure time and more importantly watch your pup if she begins to wind and lag behind turn around and go back play a quick game of fetch, or time with the flirt pole, let her naturally learn how to regulate her wind without you pushing her, shes a pup. No weights, not excessive miles, some swimming in shallow water would be great after about 6 months but let nature be and don't worry about exercise until shes 1.5yrs and then you should by then have had the time to read through the training tips throughout the forum.

nYou can damage growing joints by over doing it. Let her be a pup- normal play, short walks, and plenty of mental stimulation to help with the energy level too. In my opinion, 5 miles in one shot is way to much for a pup.

Yeah get a marrow bone an let Her chew. Or some chew toys. Kong. More about keeping her thinking and entertained than working a pup so young.

Thanks for the advice guys I do walk her at least a mile every day and she gets at least 30 minutes a day of me playing tugawar with her give up before her normally. The 5 miles was an estimate but we where out around 5 hours during that time we stopped at a few friends houses she had water and some food (leave a few sample bags of orijen at my mates houses for when we go round) only nice slow walking when she wasnt pulling she never lagged behind she had a bit of time off the lead. She does pull quite a bit on the lead so when she stops pulling I take that as a sign shes getting tired. She is a very active pup I just dont want to over do it today has been the usual walk of about 30 minutes on the lead 15 minutes off the lead and there was no sign of fatigue.

Forgot to mention I have read quite a bit on here and at 9 months I will let her try the spring pole at a low height and I dont plan on any serious type of conditioning until at least 18 months. Until then it is strictly playing with me and playing fetch and hand walking.

As for the marrow bones I let her have a rawhide bone when I first got her then read all the horror stories took it off her and replaced it with a kong toy. I will at some point give her some kind of bones but not until I have done some more research into the correct ones. Besides she doesnt know what shes missing and all good things come to those that wait .

So, how do you feel about the flip boards & treat trainers...where the dogs have to tip over cups or pull out drawers where there are hidden treats? Too much?
