Are walks and jogs bad?
I was web surfing for breeders in GA - I plan on getting a playmate for Cub in February - when I saw this info on a breeder's site.
Is this true? Cuba loves to run and would run away from me if he weren't on a leash. We have walked probably 1 to 2 miles at a time, although most of our walks are probably less than a mile. I have also jogged with Cuba, though not as frequently. I am wondering if this is why he skips his back leg occasionally...
Do Havanese like to jog?
No, it will harm their legs.
Do Havanese need to go for walks every day?
No, they will usually get all of the exercise they need in the house particularly if there is a Havanese companion in the house with the Havanese.
How far is too far to walk with a Havanese?
One fourth mile is all we allow them to walk.
But my Havanese loves to go for long walks and loves to jog, etc.
Yes, and your sweet little Havanese will follow you as long as he breathes. He will not complain and will maintain a merry disposition. He will show no pain and probably no exhaustion until he is well past normal healthy exhaustion. He will disregard his own body needs to please you. He will show no pain, exhaustion, or irritability. He will accompany you as long as he can stand. Like a tiny toddler who needs his mom to settle him down to rest a Havanese must be made to rest and that must be done by ending the walk earlier rather than later.
