....for a 5 month old? We walk 95% of the time on pavement unfortunately. We walk about 1-1 1/2 miles morning and night. I don't let her run but we do walk at a moderate pace. She stops to smell things of course and then there's the people greeting so it's not a constant pace. I've just heard warnings about growing joints and bones. I don't want to overdo it. But it seems like she lives for these walks and it really helps with her energy level the rest of the day.

Hi, I walk mine in the morning on a short lead over a small field (soft on her body), then on the pavement for proper lead trainng (total about a mile'ish). Then her last walk is a short 10mins drive to a huge park where I put her on her very long lead and just let her run around at her own will until she's tired herself out, again it's all on soft grass.

I found if I did too short a walks she just won't settle and takes all her existing energy out in the house.
