|Toby had his first walk today, actually walks, three of them, I got over-excited. One on the pavement, one in a large park, one by a canal. We got attacked by a swan, surrounded by yorkies, obsessed by pine cones and had a fabulous time.
I was told he should walk 15 minutes tops, and we stuck to this religiously. Toby was not so fond. He is a pretty high energy pup, and really wanted to keep going. At one point I ran flat out as fast as I could to see how fast he could go, and he was ahead of me the whole way.
Part of my reason for getting a chihuahua was that I didn't want to walk for an hour every day, but now he's here, I'd do it no problem, he's a superstar.
So as a 13 week old puppy, how far can he walk? Can I go on a longer walk? Is it ok to tire him out? If I can't go too far, can I build up gradually to some long walks?
