Q. How much should I exercise my new puppy?
A. None. Puppies need to be allowed to play and romp as much as they want, when they get tired, they sleep. Walking and/or running a puppy on hard surfaces is a very bad idea. Hard surfaces severely stress the developing bones and joints of the puppy and may contribute to later hip dysplasia and arthritis. Allow your new puppy to play and sleep as he sees fit and his bones and joints will develop beautifully. Also, choose your puppy’s playmates wisely - larger dogs will play much rougher than is healthy for your growing puppy.
Q. How many puppies are typically in a Sheepadoodle Litter?
A. On average there are 10 puppies in a Sheepadoodle Litter.
