    DefaultWhen I can puppy go on walks?

    We are bringing our new lab home on Thursday. She will be 7 1/2 weeks. Can I take her on walks right away or does she need to develop more? Also...should we stick to very short walks at first? Someone told me you have to be careful or you might damage their growing bones?? Thanks!

    I wouldnt take then out until they get all there shots which should be by 4months.

    Also walking them that young can damage there joints. Rule of thumb is walk them 5mins for ever month.

    Ditto.

    I made a long post about exercise in the 'Our Best Advice' sticky:
