Walking
 
At what age do you recommend daily walks? Dex is almost 3 months and is doing great with leash training. His energy level is picking up and I think soon he's going to need a daily scheduled energy outlet.

as soon as the last round of shots has been completed you can start with longer walks. I would hold off until then because you don't want them to accidentaly pick anything up where other animals have walked before they are properly vaccinated

My pup will be 7 months old this month. I take him for a 10 minute walk in the AM, before I go to work, and a 30 minute walk in the evening when I get home. Should I increase this exercise time?

im not sure if i am correct or not, but when Roxy was 7 months, I would walk her for a total of 1 hour a day and play fetch in the yard daily.

At that age you should be walking more at night and some activites . Mornings are hard since you gotta be on time for work

As Ames said as soon as those shots are done they can get daily walks. You cant over walk a dog and its good for them as well as daily play like fetch, tug, etc. Also include some mental work, teaching them basic commands, sit, stay, drop it, leave it, watch me, all of that will come in handy and is good to practice on those walks as well.
