Is a two-mile walk before I go to work in the mornings enough for an 8 month pup?

Walk
by: Donna

That's a great walk. Then, a pee walk at noon, and another pee walk after work and a pee walk before bed is perfect. He's a pup so he also needs playtime. You'll need to judge his energy levels and go accordingly.

depends

Rather depends on how many hours you will be away at work. Being left alone without a human present for long periods is the problem, not the length of the walk you take your pup on beforehand. I'll quote Ed from NJ, as he would say "use a little common sense". Trying to exhaust a puppy with a long walk so you can then leave him all day at his age, is asking for a problem to develop...either behaviour or health-wise. And that's a very long walk for a young dog that's still growing, better to take several shorter walks spaced over the day.
