    Dog needs to be 18 month before you continue what you've been doing.

    Apparently it depends who you talk to... you'd get a totally different answer if you asked the field trial/hunt test people.

    Their dogs pass hip/elbow clearances too.

    So I figure I'd keep him off hard pavement while running/trotting. The pavement vs grass/dirt makes sense to me.

    He doesnt usually doesnt want to 'just walk' when we go out.

    Right now we are camping and I have been having Boomer chase me, off lead, while riding my mnt bike. There are tons of grassy/dirt hiking trails and woods roads here. He does fine and can slow down or stop if he wants, and I will drop pace when he does. We did about 30m a few times already.

    Now I just gotta find some local soft track places.

    Ehhh, they fail a lot too. Many many FT dogs w/ no elbow numbers and it's not all due to not testing (though there still is some of that).

    How much play is OK for a puppy? Ours seems to us to be overdoing it when out in the pen. Likes to run in circles with a toy, loves to go from one end of the pen to the other. We stop within 20 min. generally (until NEXT time) but we keep bringing her out because of potty training. Young ones go a lot.

    All well, no symptoms, just wondering.

    Lovingly1, there is nothing wrong with puppy play. Pups need that.
    What one should avoid with a pup is *forced* exercise where the movement is repetitive (jogging, for example) and they don't get a chance to take a break or change pace when tired. Picture the difference between human kids running around the yard playing tag versus daily long sessions of football practice - which one is more likely to need an ortho doc later on...
