amount of walking recommended for a puppy?

I have a 15 week old puppy and have been giving him daily walks for around 40-50 minutes at a time.

You have to be careful with the flirt pole. No jumping or hard turns, keep it under 10 mins. A 40 min walk is a little long you may want to do only 30 min then start increasing it later. Repetitive motion like a walk or a jog impacts the joints and too much is not good at that age. I see many injuries in puppies due to over ambitious owners trying to do too much too soon.

I find the best way to burn off energy is try and find a dog that will play with him. At this age dog aggression should not be real high. But of course listen to common sense if you see any signs of trouble. You cold also do flirt pole a few times a day just again just don;t over do it. When your pup is 6 months you can start to increase exorcises and then again at 9 months and by 10-11 months you are pretty well free to work the dog how you please. Each dog is different tho and matures at different ages

well since he doesnt get to have little dog buddies since hes a little puppy bully (dont worry peanut was the same way, he picked on his sisters and parents) something you may want to do is be a puppy...act like a puppy would with him. we had to do this and still do with Peanut since he doesnt get along well with others. it works out good for us. we start the game and we let him know when the game is over so it doesnt turn into him controlling us.

If you can find an older stable bully to play with that would be good. Also the older dog can teach him play "manners". Pups have to learn what is acceptable behaviour at play and an older dog will tell him when he goes too far. Timbaland , whos 2 and a half and gets a little too rambuncous at play { hes 80 pounds} gets correction from his mum. A quick bark and smack with the paw usually calms him down

Capri is 5 months and walks almost 4 miles with me 4-5 times a week. She keeps right up and looks forward to our walks. its about a 15-20min drive home from the bike path and she will sleep on the way home. just like yourdog though we get home and shes ready for round two lol. I just try to keep her entertained with different forms of exercise and different toys so she doesnt get bored. If she seems like she is still full of energy I would say yes to bumping up your routine. remember as many people on here will tell you, a tired dog is a well behaved dog

with our little ones, we actually do "mini-workouts" until they are about 6 months old. We will do a little training session on sitting for the head collar or anti-pull harness to be put on, then we do a walk/stop exercise for several blocks (3-4 blocks) where we walk a few feet and then have to sit and wait or lay down. We stop at all intersections and we stop and sit at any fence where a dog is barking with no noise. It takes about 30minutes total but it is not high impact but does tire them out because they have to concentrate and keep changing actions. As they get older, we do more walking than stopping but we always stop and sit at intersections! We give random commands (sit, lie down etc) and treats through the walk.

I like what Hirihat mentions about mixing it up a little with training. It works the brain too instead of just the body. Tanner and I play daily with the flirt pole for about 15 min and go for about a 30min walk (we don't get too far lol). I have had him go to puppy play time he is pretty rough with some of the little ones but he does GREAT with the bigger puppies and plays well with my friends bull mastif . I was worried about his energy level, it seemed as though the harder I tried to tire him out the more energy he had. I realized that he actually IS tired when he starts doing sprints around the yard and will sleep within 10 min of us stopping play time.

consider that as a puppy, their minds are developing as well. even though strenuous exercise has its toll on something so tender and young, mental challenges go a long way. mix it up!

i wanted to state another thing. chino and i go for a "training" walk in the morning. It is a short distance, usually circling the block. I use his training collar and bring treats with me. We work on "heel", "watch me", "sit", "come", and "down". Its a short distance but the various tasks tire him mentally.

Can someone point me in the right direction to any thread containing "how to build a flirtpole" or "flirtpole examples" ? It sounds like alot of you are implementing this into your training rituals, and it sounds fun, too.
