Question by chiquita: How often should you walk a miniature pinscher?
And should you start walking it as soon as you bring the eight week old puppy home or wait? And if so, how long do you wait?
And how long do you walk it for?
Answer by IceBreaker27
Don’t by mislead by their small size! Min pins can walk for a looooong time. They love to walk and burn off all their nervous energy! As with all dogs, carry water bottles, take breaks, and keep an eye on your dog. I do 2, 45min power walks with mine, plus off-leash romp time in the yard. She is 9.
Puppies should be exercised with a ton of care – over-exercising a developing puppy is not a good idea.
But why on earth are you bringing an 8 wk old puppy home? That is way too young.
