I have started to jog with my 11 week old lacy and have recently seen where this could cause joint problems. It is only a 10-15 minute jog and she seems to love it. Could this cause a problem ? Most cases I see it being a problem is a lot longer distance than i am going.

When Rowdy was a puppy, she was so hyper, nothing could wear her out so I started letting her go on walks with me and the big dogs. I would take them for 1-2 mile walks and she just bounced right along. I was worried about the effect this exercise would have on her growing joints and bones so I never walked on pavement. We exercised on dirt or gravel roads only.

It is almost always on dirt roads but occasionally pavement. It's not everyday either so I am thinking she will be fine.
