The dangers of over walking Print E-mail
Friday, 18 August 2017 08:52
We were sorry to see the BBC 2 programme 10 Puppies ending last night and wish all the new owners (especially the delightful Delia and her Leonberger) the very best of luck with their puppies. But we were appalled to see the "canine expert" advising the owners of seven month old Labrador Pippa to walk her for a couple of hours. This is much too much for such a young dog and we really hope that not only do Pippa's owners ignore her advice but that anyone watching with a large breed puppy also does, to avoid damaging growing joints. The golden rule is: five minutes for each month of life - ie 30 minutes at 6 months old and one hour at a year. Remember too that the more you walk a dog the more he will expect/want!
