How far should a Cocker Spaniel be walked? The amount of exercise your Cocker Spaniel needs will vary based on their age, general health and fitness, and whether they are a ‘show’ or ‘working’ line. Healthy dogs aged between 1 year old and 9 years old should be getting at least 70 minutes of exercise every day, split between their daily walks.
How far can a 7 month old Cocker Spaniel walk? This is based on an average of two walks per day. For example, a four-month-old puppy can be walked for 20 minutes, twice a day, while a seven-month-old puppy can be walked for 35 minutes, twice a day.
How long should you walk a 5 month old Cocker Spaniel? In fact, when it comes to continuous puppy walking a good rule of thumb is that puppies should have no more than 5 minutes of exercise for each month of age, two times a day. So a five-month-old puppy would have no more than 25 minutes walking twice a day – and this should be decreased in larger breeds.
Can a Cocker Spaniel walk 10 miles? Most dogs will be happy with a walk of one to three miles, but if you have a dog that likes to cover ground, she may end up walking up to 10 miles or more. A puppy shouldn’t cover more than a couple of miles until she is grown.
