    DefaultExercise for a 12 week old

    Hi Guys

    After reading the other thread on exercise for puppies I would like some advise... our pup Hudson is just on 12 weeks and will be having his third vaccination tomorrow, which means he will be able to be walked outside of our house... We are dying to take him to the beach as it is the middle of summer here and very hot.

    I know most people have said that it is 5 mins for each month of age.. is this total for the day? Hudson play time would probably be that times x3 throughout the day... i just don't want to over do it... but we all know a tired dog is a good dog.. so a happy medium would be nice...

    5 mins per month at a time. Which means that if you run around with him for a while then take a break for 30 minutes or so (have a sit down, let him nap) and then run around a little more it will be OK. You just don't want to overdo it.
