Walking my 4 month old pit bull puppy
When walking my 4 month old pit bull puppy, he seems to be able to go for an hour + with no problems. How long should our walks be? He loves it and sleeps really well after.
Walking is great for dogs (and humans). And just as we build up our stamina through regular work outs--so do dogs.
I've never heard of a set standard in terms of amount of time or distance for walking a puppy. That's probably because there are so many variables like the pup's size, health, the pace of the walk and weather conditions that would come in to play.
Essentially, as long as your pup seems comfortable you should be fine. Just remember that dogs can't sweat, so they pant. Be sure to bring water for both you and your puppy to stay hydrated.
Enjoy your beautiful buddy.
