Exercise Guidelines For Puppies
  • These are our best recommendations based on the available studies and our 32 years of experience with Bull Terriers. Best practices for different breeds may not be the same.

 

  • I am not a veterinarian and this is not intended as veterinary advice. You should always consult your breeder and veterinarian about the best exercise program for your puppy.

 

  • There will be a differences in recommendations based on your dog’s breed. Giant breed puppies’ growth plates tend to close later and small breed puppies' growth plates close earlier.

 

  • There are also breed-specific orthopedic concerns which are not addressed here.

 

  • If your puppy was neutered before 18 months old he will have some delay in growth plate closure, so you should adopt more conservative guidelines.

 

  • For any dog that you wish to enroll in a strenuous performance career, we highly recommend doing x-rays to confirm growth plate closure before proceeding with any intense training.
