We have just adopted a Beagle who is three months old. She is quite energetic. Please advice how do we plan her exercise routine?

In their first few months, puppies will get all the exercise they need from their naturally energetic play at home, so you don’t need to give them any extra exercise. It is important not to over exercise puppies under six months of age. Excess energy that the dog doesn’t use up will be channelled into other behaviour, such as jumping up, attention seeking, barking, etc. It may help to get the dog into a routine of being exercised at certain times of the day, such as morning and evening. Wait for at least two weeks from the final vaccinations before you take your puppy outside. On the other hand, you can allow them to meet other dogs and puppies who are healthy and have been fully vaccinated. For young it is better to offer small walks little and often, probably not lasting for longer than 20-30 minutes for each exercise.
