Time Outside
  • Hello Shiba Forum.

    Our 7 month old, Thumper loves to be outside. Lately we take him out for an hour. Once we took him for a 2 hour walk and he kept going! We were POOPED!

    Everywhere on the forum says I should only walk him 30 min to an hour. I really don't mind walking Thumper for that long especially if it's beautiful out. My question is, is it safe/healthy for them? I understand it can take a toll on their joints and I want Thumper to live a long healthy life, but at the same time, I want him to enjoy his life.

    We feed Thumper immediately after his walk, and then he goes to nap for an hour or 2. So, at what point do you stop your walk?


    Thank you!
