I've heard that you should wait a half hour after and before exercise, so that's what we've been trying to do with JJ. It's hard though cause his walker doesn't come at a set time. She just goes around "noonish", which could be anywhere between 11 and 12:30. Some I'm home from work right now due to an injury, I've been feeding him his lunch myself so the walker can just walk him the whole time and tire him out. Sometimes though, I'll feed him though and she'll be hear 10 minutes later and he starts going crazy, then for a 30hour walk in which he pulls most of the time. When I was at work or when I go to physical therapy, the walker feeds him and then takes him for a walk right after. We decided that was best cause feeding him after his walk means he may have to poop after she's gone. I think I'd rather him eat first and then spend 20-25 minutes walking, hoping he'll poop. Aside from that, it's hard to keep a wild, 6-month old puppy calm for a half hour or even an hour. I have heard some people put them back in the crate after they eat in order to avoid them running around.
