    DefaultPuppy jogging

    Simple question. What age can i take my pup jogging with me? He just turned 3 months and i thought it would be good for him to jog with me in the mornings. Is this too early? I know he would love it but i dont want to hurt him I jog for 30 min in the morning

    I'd say that's way too young. I did that with my Frankie when he was about that age, but only for short periods on our daily walks. He limped for weeks on and off

    1.5 years old because of the joint issues.

    Sorry but for now it's only walks and off leash play/running/retrieving... no "forced" exercise (one pace, no stopping, on hard surfaces)

    Hehe thank you! It took me a long time to find Davis. Both parents are beautiful as they come. The dad came Brazil from a pet show owner who could no longer take care of him. Most beautiful dog i have ever seen.
