when to push her more....

kenya is 5 months old this week, and i was curious as to when can i start, i guess, challenging her as far as excersize goes. chyna, my landlords dog, is 2 1/2 and before i got kenya, chyna would run my 5 miles with me every morning. i know 5 miles is a bit much for my pup but i take her on hikes once a week, and she plays with chyna everyday for hours on end. the other day when we reached the top of our hike, i decided to run down the trail with kenya for a little... maybe about 1/2 a mile. i didnt want to push her becuase i dont know what is too much ahhaha. any ideas????

after she plays with chyna she is always dead beet tired, but i want to do more "training" because im a runner and am training for the police dept, and would like to take her with me on my runs.

Five month is really young and you donít want to over work a young pup. Right now their bones are still growing and joints are still developing. At this time all they needs is lots of enjoyable walks, playing with a flirt pole and spring pole (back feet should stay on the ground) but a puppy should have no real set program or be pushed to over exercise. You want to get them excited about exercising so you can set the groundwork for a fit and sound adult dog.

I would give her until a year before you start pushing her. We started doing more exercising of our pups when they hit 8 months old, but always taking care not to overexert them or work them on hard surfaces.

JrPit is an unknown quantity at this point
That is very true. I would wait till the dog reaches adulthood. Then u can break him in miles at time. The same way we would train. Im a runner myself and I work in that field and of course I need to exercise and so does my APBT. This worked for me.
