Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Prior to adopting my dog I read online that once a dog was 6 months old they were good to go for running on hard surfaces. However, after reading on here a bit more I see that I should maybe wait a little longer?

The tricky thing though is that I'm not entirely sure that she is actually 7 months old. I adopted her from the humane society and they had guessed 7 months, but I think she's probably a bit older. She still acts like a puppy in every possible way, but I don't think she had much, if any, training, before I got her.

Thoughts? I'd love to continue running with her, but can wait if It could hurting her.

Thanks!

I'm along the lines of better safe than sorry. Run her around at dog parks and in your yard, and wait a 2-3 more months to start running her on pavement. Plus, I'd imagine it's pretty close to the same temperature there as it is down here (I'm just outside Pensacola), so everyone will be more comfortable running when it cools off a bit Cool

On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

You're right. I should definitely wait. Getting her tired is going to be interesting for the next few months...haha. I'll definitely need to make the training sessions a little more intense...

And how long should I follow the 5 minute/month rule for walks? Until she's closer to a year?
