If she likes walks and they dont seem to be stressing her physically, you can add to the distance as she ages. Dont walk her in extreme heat, when there is a heat advisory or mid-day/afternoon as dogs can also over-heat. I have heard of some dogs going several miles a day. I wouldnt jog her but walk her and she should be fine. She will let you know when you have had enough but dont overwalk her and then she cant make it back. Let her build up to longer distances and avoid heat. Also, dont let her drink water from standing pools, you never know what bacteria is in there or if it has any anti-freeze or other chemicals toxic to dogs. </font>
