Question How much excercise do you give a puppy?

My puppy had her last vac on Thursday so will be ready to walk in a couple of days
I'm aware you should't over excercise a pup(growing bones etc)how much should I allow Coco to walk every day?She's a JRT/Chihuahua mix with alotttt of energy(between her naps).

Depends on the puppy

Watson who is about a 20 lbs six month old Basenji (a fairly active little guy) can handle some serious exercise. He is best if he has an opportunity to run the zoomies (as we call them) out, which means some off leash running. We sometimes accomplish that with recalling him back and forth between me and the BF in a safe area of leash.

Take her out and let her tell you how much she needs... If she shows signs of tiring time to go and rest She is little, but she his a high energy combination. If you have any places you can take her and safely let her exercise off lead you can play recall games with her and teach her something while exercising.

I would start of with at least 30 minutes of exercise once or twice a day for her and build up from there if she seems to need more.

Ditto the above really.

Walks are great fun, and it's tempting to stay out for aaaaages. But just be concious that she probably actually will tire quite quickly too. Even if she seems to want to keep going, my bet is that once you stop and relax, she'll zonk out

better to have a decent walk twice a day
1. morning when you go for a walk take your buddy for a healthy walk
2. in the evening after your work (office/ home)

I usually take my dogge for 5 km walk daily.
my dogge is in perfect condition

The OP's dog is all of 9 or so weeks old. A 5km walk is not going to be good advice for her and her puppy..... The dog in your avatar looks like a puppy too. I really hope that isn't the dog you are doing 5km walks with.

Well Cali is a 3 and a half month old Papillon, and she gets probably about twenty minutes of straight running (throughout the day on her own terms) plus probably an hour of just doing her own thing in the yard, maybe more. Then she gets played with while she's inside. Plus she gets lot of mental exercise.

Your dog is SO coot...my god!But yeah I was thinking about how much would I walk her considering she does ALOTTT of running around the house and playing etc.Normally when she's done she makes her way to my lap to chew and then nap.I'll probably just swap a few play sessions to little walks.
Taking her to the park tomorrow for the first time SO EXCITED
And there will be nooooooooo 5km walks lol,I think even with her boundless energy she would tire
