German Shorthaired Pointer Q&A

I have a male Ridgeback puppy who is somewhere between 7 to 9 months old. I have heard that too much exercise is bad for his growing bones, but how much is too much?

I think any exercise where you are *forcing* them to push past their limits, like leashed to a bike, or along on a jog (for a fit runner) is potentially damaging to a puppy. If they are able to stop when they're tired, like playing with other dogs, then they won't hurt themselves. -How far is too far, is hard to say, but if you're aware and watching closely and not pushing limits you'll be fine I think.
