How much exercise should my puppy be getting?
xercise for puppies is very breed specific. The general rule of thumb is 10 weeks, 10 minutes, 12 weeks 12 minutes, perfect for a working dog. However for large or giant breeds this can be significantly too much exercise. In giant breeds the rule is 5 minutes for every month of age up to 24 months, accompanied by slow bone growth food, to diminish chances of hip dysplasia caused by over activity.
