I have a 4 month old Pry and like to go for long walk is a two mile walk to far at this age. She is fine when we get back just don't want to cause any hip issues. The walks are at a slow pace

long walks and stress on growing bones/ligaments
by: Anonymous

they say you shouldn't do any really long walks till at least 2 years of age because of stress on the joints growing, this is what I read....better to go on short walks, in my opinion, i'd hate to see your 4 month old Pyr get joint, ligament problems because of long walks.......play easy too, no jumping from couches, high places, that's what I read too:) hope this helps. Everything in moderation as they say.
