i think your pretty good to go nuts, my pup just turned 7 months too. walk her untill shes tired IMO.

i walk him 2 times a day, and its around 2.5-3 miles each time. takes us around 45 minutes ( depending on how many neighbors stop us to say " OMG!!!! look how big he's getting!! )

me personally, still dont like taking him running with me on my bike. but he gets a good 30 minutes a HARD fetch where he sprints as fast as he can for about 250 feet.

i feel fetch is safer.short bursts of sprinting and he's pushing himself, not me pushing him. he loves when i take him on the bike, but im just afriad of hurting him running too hard consistantly for too long of a time.

Miss V just turned 8 ms old and she gets around 4 hours of exercise/play a day. Sometimes more sometimes a little less. I play fetch with her 3 times a day and 3 times a week we do flyball. I work her on some agility stuff low jumps and tunnels mainly. Plus she gets to run with the other dogs.

I would say that you could walk your pup 2-4 miles a day.

Yeah stay away from running the dog but walking is fine. At 7 months dogs are still really growing. I wait till 10 months before I start really running a dog hard even then start small and build up stamina by the time the dog is 11-12 months old you are good to go.

i agree with luoozer, Delilah is 6 months old and i walk her until she is tired... my walks with her are about 2 miles a day. when my boy, Tebow, turned 10 months he was a beast and walking wasn't enough for him so we got him into weight pulling. he loves it.

actually, yes it is! lol tim tebow is a beast and tebow was the pick of the litter. his father is 104lbs, his mother is 103 lbs, and his grandmother is 105 lbs so we figured he was going to be a beast too and that tebow was the perfect name for him! lol go gators!!

I walk my 10 month old puppy for about 2 miles or so, about 1 hour. Although walking the pup us great, I think the best training for a puppy are puppy games, fetch, tug, fly ball, flirt pole etc, once the dog is mature then you should start harder training like running and weight pulling, JMO.

i think it depends on the dog mostly. when i started tebow on weight pulling i got him used to the harness then just put the sled, then 20lbs, then 50lbs.. but it wasn't even affecting him he was running with it behind him like there was nothing there. so now he's up to about 200lbs and he still kinda trots along with it. lol

ranger is a jewel in the roughranger is a jewel in the rough
While walking my boy on his daily 2 mile walk, I was approached by a lady that asked me how old my boy was, I replied he just turned 6 months. She stated that she always notice me walking my boy daily, she then went on to say "that you are probably going to tell me to go to hell, but you should not be walking your puppy no more than 15 minutes daily. I replied that would be fine if my boy was a poodle or a similar breed but for pit bulls daily 2 mile walks are fine at his age. She then went on to say that she raises Rottweilers and that she was sure I was overdoing it. I then told her to do some research on pit bulls and she will discover what I am saying.

People should mind their onw business. If you didn't ask her for her opinion she shouldn't have offered. this is a very active breed and needs not only phyiscal exercise but mental exercie too.

Hah. 15 min walks. That's just getting warmed up!

I'd say a couple or more hours. Depending on how much energy your dog has.

How about a 16 week old puppy? Is 2-3 miles okay for that age?
