How far should I walk my Jack Russell 11 week old puppy per day?

Hi I have a young Jack Russell pup, we play a lot at home, I take him out to our apartments shared garden 5-8 times per day for play and toilet depending on his naps. How long should his walks be? I want him to be getting enough exercise and play time but I don't want to do any damage to his bones.

How long to walk a Jack Russell puppy
by: Jane

There is a 5 minute rule which is basically 5 minutes walk per day, per month of your puppy’s life, so therefore an 11 week old should get around 15 or so minutes a day. As your puppy grows you can extend the time of each walk.
