Pug Q&A

How Long should I be walking my 8 month old Male Chocolate Labrador? Right now I take him out in the evenings (every night rain or shine) for 1hour walks sometimes it is 1 hour and 30 mins. If we see his friends we play anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half. Is that too much??????? He seems to really enjoy it and an hour walk seems like it doesn't "satisfy" him?

I would suggested you are walking your dog too much, 40 mins should be enough twice a day and be careful with free runing with other dogs for any length of time too. You can't satify a labs energy you will just put strain on his very young bones, mental stimulation for 20mins is approx equivalent of 40mins walking, we have a 2 yr old choc male, and have previously had 3 yellows all fit and healthy, none of which we could satisy do increase his walks to about an hour at one year old.. Good luck
